On the verge of getting my '96 Outback, and I have two more questions.

Its a manual, and the shifter feel was vague and mushy. Is this worn bushings?

From what I can tell, the vehicle is from Utah. The underhood emissions sticker states it complies with California Tier 1 emissions standards. Did all 2.2L Outbacks comply, or is this a CA-only setup?

Most probably. They should be relatively cheap and simple to replace (Suby dealer and/or online parts store).

I can't help you with your other question.

Best thing to do is get some stiffer shifter bushings. Where you live it may be best to try and find some Cusco Shifter bushings but here in the states the Kartboy ones are easy to get:
Unfortunately all the suppliers seem to only carry bushings for the 1997-up Outbacks.
