Product Description

Attention 06 STi owners - we have run into a situation where Subaru has used the 04/05 linkage on some of the 06 STis. If your control rod/linkage core is GOLD in color then you need the 04/05 kit. If your control rod/linkage core is dark green in color you need the 06 kit.

People have been loving the 04-05 STi linkage bushings, but it turns out that Subaru changed some dimensions for the 06 model year. That means that the good old 04-05 bushings won't fit. Total bummer.

So what to do? Well, how about this - new bushings. Not just new bushings, but bushings that fit (which is always a good thing). In fact it turns out that when Subaru changed the size they made them the same across all the models - both the 6MT AND the 5MT. So I guess Subaru made up for the bummer because these will now fit all the 06 manual transmission Subarus.

So now you say, "Hey guys, that's great and all, but I'm not really familiar with them. What do they do?" Seems like a fair enough question to us, so let me answer it for you.

  • First, these are not the Kartboy bushings. These are entirely different (if you also need the Kartboy bushings check out some of our other bundles).
  • These go in the actual shifter u-joint (Some folks call it the trunnion).
  • It cleans up the side to side slop
  • You know that side to side slop that makes you mis-shift due to hanging up the stick between gates because things have gotten so sloppy? Yeah, these fix that.

Instructions are very similar to the instructions for the 04-05 bushings. 5MT guys just don't have to worry about that whole lockout cable.

  1. Best upgrade for daily driving 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Nov 2017

    TIC make some really good products, and this is one of them. They fixed up the huge slop and lag between gears problem I was having. Entra, express shipped these bushings from Canberra to Newcastle and to my door in less then 24 hours. Awesome product, great service and would very highly recommend to anyone

  2. Nothing like a Stiffie 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Aug 2016

    2006 WRX 5spd
    Took a grand total of 2 minutes to install and was easy.
    Gear selector is back to being nice and firm and feeling like it should. 10/10 WB again.

  3. Massive Improvement 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Aug 2016

    Original bushes literally turned to dust after 100K gentle Ks (08 Lib Spec B). Huge improvement with these bushes, shifter feels brand new. They're costly little things but worth every cent.

  4. Transformed my shifting experience! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Apr 2016

    I bought these for my MY07 Spec B Liberty to replace the worn out stock bushers.

    These bushers are stiff and made my shifter feel better than brand new, with no noise or vibration. Definitely recommended!

  5. Like new again 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Mar 2016

    Recently bought a 2005 Spec B Liberty and my only complaint was the gear shift being sloppy as hell.
    After talking to Nick here, who was incredibly helpful I purchased this and had it within a few days.
    After installation the gear shift is firm and drives like new. Very happy customer here.

  6. Good as new 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Mar 2015

    I have a MY04 Liberty Spec B and these bushings along with TIC Lever Pivot bushings and Kartboy front shift bushings, I no longer have a sloppy shifter. Nice and firm, but the trade off is minor noise from trans which I can live with. And Nick was helpful when AusPost lost my order.
