      shifter bushing upgrade

      Just had the bushing kit installed by a good friend of mine who is a very experienced long time Ford tech. On the first test drive the shifting was much more positive, especially on high rpm quick shifts. With the red bushing installed there is some very slight gear whine and NVH increase. But I can easily live with it. 2nd to 3rd shifts and 4th to 3rd downshifts are more positive and confidence inspiring. It took longer for the exhaust to cool down than to install the kit. Very easy install on a lift. Well done, Steeda.

      Better bushing

      This is a good remedy for something Ford never should have let past RandD. I used the black, harder, bushing and seems to have fixed 90 of the problem. Naturally there is more sound and harmonics in the shifter. Nothing i can't live with. I also used the tranny bushing from White Line....i think is the name. Another bushing that is way too soft. Took me 30 minutes to do both on a drive on lift.

      Great result for little money

      I wish I had done this sooner. 90 of the annoyance with shifting is now gone. There is no longer a feeling of fumbling into gear - it just goes straight in. The "crunch" into second is almost 100 eliminated. For under $100 and less than an hour of time this is a great mod. On ramps I couldn't get the black insert to close enough that I could get the bracket over it - too hard to reach in there. Oddly, the red insert was easy to install so that's what I did after fighting the black insert for ~20 minutes (the red one isn't split like the black). Very happy with the purchase and would recommend it to anyone.

      Very nice bracket

      It's a quality bracket and the only one I have found with the option of two different bushings. I used the red bushing and it works great. No noise threw shifter at all . The red is softer then the black bushing but 20 x harder then the piece of junk ford put in the car. I bought a Barton shifter but went with the steeda bracket for the bushing option .. couldn't be happier

      Good Overall, Not Perfect

      The Steeda bracket did help to tighten up shifting on my 2012 Boss 302, with stock shift shifter. Used the black harder bushing and got zero NVH, and a bit better shifting which was good. However, it's still not perfect from 1-2 nor 2-3 and the Blowfish might have been the better option overall for me. But the way I currently drive the car, I just didn't want to spend that money now, but maybe later. This was a good upgrade if your not banging gears hard all the time. If you are, go Blowfish Bracket or MGW full replacement shifter. But the money is a significant difference. Your call.

      Nice improvement.

      I installed this on my '13 GT with a Steeda short throw shifter. I used the red bushing. I highly recommend removing the driveshaft for easier installation. I would not call it a night and day difference but it is a solid and noticeable improvement. Firmer shifts, slightly decreased travel, slightly increased efforts, better confidence in hitting the correct gear. I have not noticed any increased noise. I recommend this product as a solid upgrade, but don't expect that it transforms your driving experience.

      WELL worth the money!!!

      The stock shifter for the MT82 leaves a lot to desire especially as miles rack up. My stock shifter was so notchy and sloppy and It seemed like it was getting harder to shift fast and hard...I will eventually get a MGW to solve it all but for $80 this thing is AMAZING! firms up the feeling and really makes it smooth and much easier to shift. If you want to improve the MT82 shifting but don't have the $ for a new shifter this will work wonders! I used he black harder bushing and had to drop the front end of drive shaft to install but it was easy and did it in less than an hour on jack stands...10mm deep well socket is needed.

      Great, schep mod - tough install

      It took me a good 1.5-2 hrs to install. It was tough to get under the car in my garage, and especially tricky to get the bracket installed above the driveshaft. you just have little space to work with. What ended up working for me was to slip the bushing/polymer on the shaft (I went with the red one), and then angle the bracket to sort of guide itself onto the bushing as you keep pressing it upward. I then ran it without the short throw shifter that I also installed later, to gauge the impact of just the bracket. It definitely was more crisp, almost clunky, for more definitive shifts. And if you see the OEM piece of junk, along with the increased shifting feel, I think this is well worth the money. But man, coupled with the new short throw shifter, what a feel! That shifter-bracket combo knocked it out of the park.

      No bueno

      Mustang was missing 2nd gear and sometimes 4th on the drag strip. This product didn't help resolve my issue at all. Shifter still feels notchy even when sitting still. I would not recommend this to a friend as a solution for getting locked out of gears at high rpms.

      A MUST!

      My mustang is a daily driver and Time Attack/autoslalom entry and I can attest to the difficulty some shifts could be on track, with the stock setup. Often times it wouldn't shift into gear, and I'd back-off, so as to not damage the tranny by forcing the issue at high RPMs. Alas, it still happened at times, and the "slop" got worse as the years went on. Until I installed this bracket. This should've come with the car. I installed the black bushing, and it only added the sound of the transmission gears to the cabin, but only lightly. But the shift improvement, especially at high revs, even with the stock shifter, is above expectations.

      Affordable and effective

      I don't think there is much wrong with the stock shifter, as it strikes a good balance between performance and limited NVH characteristics. That being said, I love modding my car and figured that for $80 it would be interesting to see the difference. I have a bad shoulder than sometimes gives me trouble so I went with the softer bushing just in case the harder one stiffened the shift action too much. In fact, the whole reason i went with this part over the Barton options was because it has the 2 different bushings to choose from. With a lift, it took less than a half hour to install. The small amount of shifter slop that is present with the stock bushing has been reduced and the shift action just feels improved overall. With the softer bushing, the difference isn't HUGE but its nice and for the price I'm completely satisfied. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to improve shift feel.

      This is a "Must" part for 2011-2014 manual shift Mustangs

      I installed the black "race" bushing and it took out the stock sloppy shifter feeling and shifting from second to third is not a problem anymore. The biggest problem I had was the limited space between the driveshaft and the body so with the front end on ramps and the rear tires on the ground I jacked up the body more which gave enough clearance to install. I didn't hear any additional noise using the black bushing. This is a great product and it's much more fun driving my 5.0 now.

      Great upgrade

      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!

      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

      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

      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.

      Great product

      I originally replaced the factory shifter bracket with the Barton 2 post bracket. The Barton bracket was great. It offered super-tight shifting and no missed shifts. However, it also transferred a lot of vibration up through the shifter and was pretty noisy in everyday normal driving. It got annoying so I decided to try the Steeda bracket due to the choice between the two bushings. I went with the red bushing and it has been great. It offers much improved shifting over the factory bracket with no increase in noise. I did not try the black bushing so I don't know whether that increases the noise volume. So, in summary, while the Barton 2 post bracket offered a tighter shifting experience, the Steeda bracket was more in line with my taste since it did not increase the noise level.

      A quality product from Steeda

      A very nicely built piece. The install was a bit of a wrestling match, but wasn’t too difficult and only took about ½ hour, with simple hand tools. Definitely go with the harder black bushing, really no more NVH than the standard bushing. Made the shifter feel more precise, and shifts easier and surprisingly lighter. I actually found that my stock rubber bushing had failed almost completely allowing the shifter to nearly bottom out on the flimsy stock stamped bracket. The new one raised the shifter back up in the car noticeably, probably to where it should have been. All in all a nice update for the price.

      Must have if you drive in colder areas.

      I basically brought this bracket cause when I would drive my car cold weather it would struggle to shift smoothly until it warmed up. Plus occasionally when I would shift hard I would miss 2nd and end up in 4th. I've had the red (softer) bushing on for about 2 months now and I haven't had any shifting issues at all. The NVH with the red bushing is pretty much stock like to me so I'm happy about that. Its also a piece of cake to install either bushing. Just use the supplied grease and a little force and they both slide right on. Took me more time to take the old one off then to put the new one on.
