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.

I think this was a good modification to tighten up the shifter. The area is tight, so you must take your time otherwsie you will definitely drop a bushing or washer between the exhaust well and the carpeting (this happened a few times during install). Great product.
Thanks again Corksport!

Installed pretty simple until I dropped the right front bushing and it went down between the exhaust tunnel and carpet. Other than that pretty simple install.

Any estimate on CS bushing for 2.0l 5-speed non sky?

One of my first mods to my car. Instructions were very clear and easy to install. The outcome was as expected. Tighten up the loose feeling.

Had the stock bushings for about 5000 miles, then put these in. I've had them in now for 12,000 miles and they are very good at taking a good amount of slop out of the stock shifter assembly.

Easy install, I agree, getting the factory bushings out is a pain, especially the one underneath the shift linkage. Excellent feel to shifts after the install. Much cleaner, positive feel to shifts.

The shifter bushings came in a very cool aluminum case and the bushings well made and attractive looking. Too bad you can't see them. I combined the bushings with the short shift plate and the difference is immediately noticeable. You get more precise shifts with this combo and it makes the transmission feel totally different in a good way.
The install tool around 40 minutes and was a little tricky. Make sure you have long extensions so that you can remove and install bolts with ease. Also, using a pair of needle nose pliers to remove the stock metal bushing sleeves, and push the stock rubber bushings through the bottom of the mounting holes. It also helps to disconnect the shifter linkages from the shifter mount.

Great price! Quick to install. The shifter bushings pairs with the short shifter plate makes the shifting in my 2010 mazdaspeed 3 feel better than new. It is a world of a difference than the rubber factory ones that come installed . I would recommend this to any one that wants a way to get a better shift.

First mod on my 2012 Mazdaspeed 3, it was kind of hard to install, but I guess is because I have never work on a car before. Excellent!!! Product is a most have, I have own my Speed3 for 8 months now and I notice the difference right away after the installation was complete I would recommend this Shifter Bushings to anyone you would not be disappointed at all. Great Job Corksport!

2010 Speed 3. I've had these installed for about 2 weeks now. Freaking love these, they made the shifter assembly much more stable, shifts are crisp and accurate now. Recommended for the price, can't go wrong, especially for people who like to drive in a spirited way once in a while!
