Description
Smoother, Firmer Shifts. Eliminate that sloppy stock shifter feeling and enjoy smoother, firmer shifts when you're banging through the gears with a Steeda Shifter Bracket and Bushing. This bracket/bushing replaces the wimpy factory bracket that allows deflection during spirited driving and power shifting, causing slow or even missed shifts. Superior Quality. Milled from aerospace grade aluminum for lightweight and high-strength, the Steeda shifter bushing comes with two different durometer polyurethane bushings; one low durometer for no increase in shifter NVH, and a high durometer for minimum compliance.

Easy Install. This Steeda shifter bushing is easy to install and does not require any permanent modifications to your Mustang.

Application. The Steeda Shifter Base Bushing is designed for 2011-2014 Mustang GTs and V6s and will work with both stock shifters and any aftermarket shifter that reuses the factory shifter housing.

Technical Notes. Will not fit Shelby GT500.

AWESOME

This bracket is a must have for your mustang. The stock shifter is tough to get into gear and very sloppy especially under power. this really changes that. I installed it by myself. took about a half hour.

    A Vast Improvement In Feel and Confidence

    April 30, 2012

    I would install this bushing even if I did not replace the shifter. I already installed the SR short throw shifter, but this modification actually had more overall impact on driveability. I installed the high durometer bushing (the black one). The result is a very solid shifting motion with greatly enhanced feedback from the transmission and the gears. The "click-click" sound as you move through the gears is quite noticeable, especially at lower speeds - but I like the knowledge and confidence of hearing/feeling exactly what is going on in the MT-82 as I run through the gears. The sound does take a little getting used to if you have been driving with the stock setup for a while. Now, that vague, mushy feeling from the shifter is gone and no more missed shifts. I do not notice any appreciable increase in noise being transmitted throught the shifter once you are through the gears and cruising - only while actually shifting do you hear the increased sound/noise. I am not experiencing any noticeable increase in general vibration through the shifter from the firm bushing as some have said. My car is a daily driver. Installation is straightforward, although be forewarned that if using the black, high durometer bushing, you have to slip it over the tail housing first (it has a slit in it to open it up) and then slip/force the bracket over the bushing. The black bushing is too hard to slip over the tail housing already assembled with the bracket. Getting the bracket over the bushing will take some twisting and coaxing. I used a very long, wide screwdriver, with the bushing/bracket twisted a bit to one side, and then pushed first one side, then the other until the bracket slid up some onto the bushing before I could get the holes over the studs, then I turned the nuts a litle at a time on each side to get the bracket fully slid over the bushing and seated. I used the grease provided, but it is very heavy/sticky. Lighter grease might help. Don't over tighten the nuts as you will break out the studs. Bottom line is that the instructions could be more helpful by giving additional detail and tips. Total time was about an hour including putting the front end up on two jack stands. My complete shifter upgrade is the SR Short Throw, the Steeda Black Urethane Bushing and Bracket, and a Black Ball Shifter Knob. The combination of the three together has made a huge improvement in driving feel and overall enjoyment of the MT-82. Even though the bushing/bracket cost 2/3 of the price of the shifter, so I think the price is a bit high, the overall effect of the three mods together was worth it to me.

    AWESOME

    May 09, 2012

    This bracket is a must have for your mustang. The stock shifter is tough to get into gear and very sloppy especially under power. this really changes that. I installed it by myself. took about a half hour. make sure you have an extension for your ratchet. simple install and i really enjoy the new shifts especially under power. I paired this with the satin shift knob which seems to be weighted so over all a much better feel of shifting for me now. And you definitely can't beat the price. A+

    It Does What It Says It'll Do

    April 01, 2013

    Just installed it this past weekend and now know why so many folks say this should be standard equipment from Ford! I used the harder black bushing and yes, there is a bit more NVH, but in a very visceral and satisfying way. It now feels like the shifter and transmission are part of the car and not a distant, disconnected hum. The best part is the mushiness has been vanquished! I read another review suggesting backing out the bolts from the transmission cradle about 1/2" to get more clearance between the drive shaft and floor pan - It worked and made it so much easier getting the bracket lined up over the bushing. Thanks for the tip! Well made and highly recommended!!

    What an improvent!

    May 26, 2012

    Just installad this on '13 V6. I wanted to try this before buying a new shifter, and did it ever work. No more sloppy shifts. Made a huge difference going into 5th and 6th gears. I went with the red bushing. While I wouldnt consider this inexpensive, it was cheaper and easier to install than a shifter. It took me longer to put the car on jackstands than it did to change the part!

    Should have come from the factory like this....

    May 02, 2012

    Installation was simple enough if you drop the driveshaft at the U joint in the center, 2 13 mm bolts and there is enough clearance to wedge the billet housing onto the bushing. This bushing makes the shifting feel spot on everytime, totally different than the stock feel. I installed the black bushing (race) and haven't had any regrets. Worth every penny spent and then some.

    Great upgrade

    November 06, 2014

    This bracket with the high durometer bushing and a White Line transmission mount insert, provides a very solid shifting experience. I highly recommend this set up. I no longer have that mushy feel which leads to miss shifts and a lack of confidence on gear placement. Vibration on my car is negligible. This is a great up grade and for the price it can't be beat.

    Easy, inexpensive, and extremely effective!

    October 03, 2014

    Install took about 45 minutes in my garage on jack stands. I installed the red bushing which has very tight tolerances so I used some petroleum jelly to lube it and put it on the shifter. When installing the bracket I also recommend some lube on the inside so that it will more easily slide over the bushing. I did not drop the driveshaft as some have, but overall the extra effort was less than if I had done the disconnect. Driving is so much more enjoyable now because I don't have to worry about hitting the wall that seems to come up during hard driving from first to second and then again from second to third. Very firm reassuring feel to the shifter now. Overall, I would say that this is the best mod that I have done to any mustang yet. For $79, you would be crazy to put off this purchase for another single day.

    Must have mod

    July 06, 2014

    For those of you who find the stock shifter lacking and hard to work at high RPM this is the mod for you. I wanted improved shifting feel without having to go to a full blown short shifter. After reading about the stock shifting base bracket and rave reviews for the Steeda bushing I decided to pull the trigger. I wasn't disappointed, this base bushing (I am using the red bushing) makes shifting feel precise and miles ahead of what came stock. There is little NVH over stock with the red bushing, haven't tried the black bushing yet.

    Huge Improvement shouldnt have waited to do this

    June 07, 2014

    This produce made all the difference in the world with the shifting on my 2014 GT. Everything is right there and no missed shifts. Solid and well built it is a marked improvement over the stock bushing. Was a little tricky to get on but still was able to do it in under an hour. Still amazed at the difference it makes.
