Default Short Shifters

What short shifter do you recommend? Did you do the bushing kit too? Was it worth it?

Thanks for the advice.

I'm happy with my Kartboy. I got the lever/knob/front bushing combo.

Also a vote for Kartboy here. Nice short, crisp shifts.

Any issues with increased vibration for those of you running the bushings too?

I don't have the short shifter although I plan to get a short shifter in the future. I do now though have the Kartboy short shifter bushing and their rear shifter stay bushing as well and love them. The rear was a pain in the a$$ to install but once it was on it was golden. And the shifter bushing make shifting very krisp & kleen and I am VERY happy with the mods.

I had the Kartboy in my 09. Nice piece of gear. It does introduce a fair bit of noise from the transaxle into the passenger compartment whether or not you use their bushings.
