Eliminate side to side compliance and remove the slack on your shifter by replacing the rubber OEM shifter bushings on your Mazdaspeed 3 or six speed Mazda 3 with the CorkSport aluminum black anodized shifter bushings.
Over time shifting gears can cause the soft rubber bushing found at the anchor point of your shifter assembly to deteriorate and fall apart. Replacing the shifter bushings will provide a noticeable difference in the way your car drives and improve shift responsiveness for years to come.

Just got them installed on my car, installation was a breeze, the most difficult part was getting the stock rubber bushings off.
Staff at Corksport was very helpful, wasn't expecting to get installation advice while I was calling to check on the order status.
And I agree the washer falling under carpet problem is something not everybody expects but does need some extra attention to prevent.

Figured I'd have to replace the bushings one day anyways we'll mine weren't even bad for 65k but I put these corksport bushings on tonight and omg it's amazing, no more clunky feeling that the mazdaspeed3 is known for the gears are so easy to get into it's really a bang for your buck I mean for what $40 and a 15 minute install it's worth it!

Absolutely amazing product. If you're driving down the street you will feel more "feed back" from your shifter going into gear, but where this product really shines, is running the 1320. No more of that horrific grinding when quickly snapping into 2nd gear, and when throwing into 3rd aggressively(you know what I mean), no longer does the shifter keep pushing and have that "I'm about to break my shifter" feel. Easy install, quality materials(as expected from CS), and amazing customer service(also expected with CS).

They are only worth it if your stock rubber bushings are very worn. If they aren't you won't notice that much of an improvement.

Just installed and must say very big improvement. The shifter base feels more solid which in turn makes the shifting crisper. Plus my bushings were worn so this made the perfect replacement. This combined with Corksport short shifter will make the difference in your shifting game. Must have and the price is worth the result. Only took me 25 min by myself.

Received these as a gift. After installation, cranked the engine and immediately noticed a difference. The clutch felt smoother and shifting more direct. Overall, the cabin felt quieter. Not even sure if that's supposed to happen but it was ver noticeable. I would highly recommend.

My 2gen MS3 has 80k on it, but the OEM rubber bushings were just like new when I pulled them out. So dropping in Corksport solids unfortunately didn't make almost any difference... Perhaps a slightly crisper shifting with barely noticeable "metallic feedback". I guess the OEM bushings have to be really messed up and the shifter has to have a lot of wobble for you to feel significant difference with these bushings. Other than that - a high quality part. As always from CS. Will be installing CS short shift plate, CS mid-chasis brace and CS rear strut bar this weekend. Will review)

I arrived home from a hard day at work only to find a corksport package anxiously awaiting my arrival. I quickly jumped on my cell and assembled my crew and rolled to the shop. I installed the bushings and my homy did the short shift plate. All said and done it took about 35 minutes between the two of us. Very simple! and what a drastic improvement! I recommend those two products from corksport to anyone that has little money but seeks a very good upgrade for the price. If I had 4 hands it would be 4 thumbs up!! Awesome products corksport! Also awesome customer service! Keep up the good work!

Easy install.... if you ordered these, you might as well get the short-shifter too... very happy and looking forward to slamming through the gears and getting crisp shifts

Very quality product like everything else from corksport. Installation was a little harder just because the video wasn't as descriptive as id like but I was able to pull the metal part out of the oem bushings then press the rubber part out threw the bottom of the housing then the CS bushings just set right in. with the addition of the CS short shift plate my 6 speed feels better than brand new!
