Yeah it's a breeze. I'm puzzled when I ready threads about having to pound them in with a sledge. There's a snap ring in there LOL....It plops right in the socket and there's plenty of clearance around all the metal bits.
Yah I still have the stocker on there. Even so it's obviously lower when you sit there staring at it. The aftermarket knobs will drop it quite a bit more, the stocker looks real tall compared to some of the knobs out there.
just installed the kartboy short shifter.it too about 20 minutes.shifts are more notchier and precise.it looks about an inch or so lower than stock.i had no problems with any rubbing like some of the people with the perrin shifter.would recommend this to anyone.
Here's a question for you guys. My 08 WRX came with the Sti short shifter kit. Is this kit just the internal mechanisms or is it only the shifter? I also own a Kartboy shifter from my old RS. Would it be pointless to take off the shifter currently on my car and replace it with the Kartboy? Yeah.
