I have the eco-boost and just bought the Ford Racing Short Throw shifter install shows to buy the steeda trans mount also but it states only for the GT so I do not need it when I go to install?

  • No, the steeda trans mount is not needed when installing the ford short throw shifter onto a 15-17 ecboost mustang.

Now have a 2016 and noticed this bracket for the '16 model so I decided to purchase again based on the positive history I had on the '11 model. Install was easy....much easier if you have access to a lift. Shifter feel much better and precise. Highly recommend for such an inexpensive mod.

    Bye Bye Shifter Slop

    I have had my 2015 mustang gt for a month now and had noticed some play in the shifter. Due to the soft shifter mount, I was having issues with the shifter not going into second when downshifting at corners or rolling stops as well as the infamous "clunk". The Steeda Shifter Base Bushing alleviated these issues. As far as nvh, right after install I could notice an increase in noise, but it was not a drastic increase. Also it is good noise and is only really present on idle. This is a daily driver and excessive noise was a concern, but I have had it installed for a week now and I am loving it. As far as installation, I ran into a little trouble due to the factory bushing bracket having a thread lock clip installed. As I didn't want to damage the stock clip, just in case, I had to take my time and work the clip down the threads. Other than that, the most time consuming part is getting the car off the ground. Overall, a shifter bushing is a must. Highly recommended.

    Perfect 2nd-3rd

    No lock out with this bushing! Feels fantasitc paired with the trans mount bushing. Having the shifter base bushing really eliminates all play in the trans, which means every gear is exactly where you want them to be

    NICE PIECE!

    SO IT A NICE PIECE, INSTALL WAS EASY ONCE I GOT THE TRANNY AND DRIVESHAFT OUT OF THE WAY. BUT EVERYTHING U INSTALL TO MAKE YOUR CAR PERFORM BETTER COMES WITH A LITTLE TRADE OFF. NOW THAT I INSTALLED THE FR SHIFTER AND PRETTY MUCH SOLID MOUNTED THE SHIFTER ASSY, THERE IS A LITTLE VIBRATION THAT IS NOTICED WHICH WAS PREVIOUSLY DAMPENED BY THE BIG SLOPPY RUBBER BUSHINGS. BUT THE SHIFTS ARE SUPER CRISP AND MUCH MORE FUN, YOU KNOW WHAT GEAR YOU ARE GOING INTO WHICH MAKES IT NICE.. ALSO I WOULD INSTALL THE FR SHORT THROW AND MAKE SURE YOU LOWER THE TRANNY ABOUT 5-6 INCHES TO MAKE THE INSTALL GO A LOT FASTER. IF NOT TAKE IT TO THE SHOP.

    What a difference!

    Using the bracket in line with the Hurst Short Throw. Amazing difference. Anyone who complains about the very minor increase in vibration is crazy. Definitely would recommend to anyone who likes banging through the gears while doing some spirited driving.

    Not bad

    Recently installed steedas shifter bushing in my car and I'm kinda on the fence about it. Install wasn't that bad and it does clean up a bit of the squishy feeling in the shifts but I have to say after having it a few weeks that it doesn't correct some of the clunking I get between gears especially first second and third. Deffinetly looking at a short throw shifter now too. As for nvh it did add a small growl sound at low rpms under the transmission that does sound kinda cool. Overall it's not a bad buy

    Must have for a stock shifter!!!

    Works great with the stock shifter. Shifts are much firmer and I rarely miss 2-3 anymore.

    Really takes the slop out

    I had this part installed as well as the Steeda Transmission mount bushing, and a Ford Racing short throw shifter at the same time. The difference is night and day. Shifts are more direct and tight, with very little "rubbery" vagueness that the stock shifter tends to have. This base bushing takes the "slop" or "looseness" out of the shifter, you really can't miss a gear with it, and the annoying indentation that's there (at least on my car) when you go from 5th to 6th is greatly reduced. A great part, that doesn't cost a ton of money, but does make a noticeable difference.

    definitely must

    Took me half an hour to install, didn't have to touch transmission mounts or transmission. It is limited space but it could be done. Shifts have improved and feel more solid. Definitely recommend for someone who likes spirited driving.

    Rear transmission support bracket

    Did what it said it would do. Stiffened the transmission and made the shifts alot more solid. I'm glad I purchased this product. I did get a little NVR but not much.

    Stress Shifter Base Bushing

    Stress has made a great product. I really feel the firmness of the Steeda bushing compared to the soft runner bushing that comes stock. However I do feel a little more vibration and noise. This is a good product for the price. The install was smooth and I did it myself with the proper tools. I installed the steeda shifter base ford performance short throw.

    How the gear changes should have felt stock

    I just got my car, its a 2015 PP GT. I'm coming from a built 2v that had a MGW shifter in it. My first impressions of the stock shifter in the 5.0 are, the spacing between gears aren't bad, but the actual engagement is like rowing a stick through a jar of marshmallows. Not fun. So I did some digging and found this bushing. Install took maybe 30 mins if that, and I did the whiteline transmission insert as well. I gotta say this paired with the insert made a huge difference. The gear shifts are much more direct now and its much more fun to row through gears. I wouldn't say there is a throw reduction with this bushing, it just better defines the gear shifts and gives you more confidence in what gear you're going into. There isn't much added NVH, and if there is its good rumbling noises from the engine. Comparing this to the stock bushing you'll see why it made that much of a difference.

    Good product that I would recommend to others. Fairly easy to install, took me a leisurely 2 hours. I noticed a slight improvement in the shift accuracy. Worth it considering the moderate and discounted cost.
