i didn't put in bushings for my TRD short shifter

the short shifter came with 4 bushings, i'm assuming that's what they are , i used the japanese directions so I didn't think i needed them , what are they for?

umm those are key to the shortshifter. that is how the throws are shorter because the whole shifter is raised by the bushings allowing the bottom protion of the shifter(after the ball) to move longer. with that moving longer it makes the top part (where the knob is) have a shorter distance to tavel to move the bottom part. thus making your throws shorter. basically put them in!! very easy to do by urself there are directions in the tech info stuff.

You need to use them. It gives the shifter a totally different feel (it makes it more firm and less loose)

The TRD doesn't change the fulcrum of the shift point at all, the bushing is the same height as the stock one, it's just not made of rubber so the shifts are more direct. thumbsup

and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.
