Eliminate sloppy shifts forever!
Our CNC machined shifter cable bushings tighten up the movement of your shifter cables, literally connecting your hand to the gears. In a performance situation, the factory rubber bushings flex causing a delay in the engagement in the gears. Our bushings eliminate this delay and provide a precision shift free of slop or hesitation.
Our shifter cable bushings are CNC machined from 6061 aluminum and fit precisely within the factory endlink. Each bushing is sleeved with an oil-impregnated bronze bearing. This bearing provides constant lubrication and a lifetime of use without wear.
Specifically machined for a variety of fitments, our shifter cable bushings provide instant results. Installation is a simple task and requires only slight modification to the side/side endlink. If you're looking to feel your shifts, these bushings are the answer!

The 2006-2007 Mk5 5 speed front/back endlink is rectangular and accepts a version of our rectangular bushing. The pin diameter is roughly 8.5mm. This front/back endlink connects directly to the weighted shift linkage. It is used on all Mk5 5 speed transmissions.
The 2006-2007 Mk5 5 speed side/side endlink is square and accepts a version of our round bushing. The pin diameter is roughly 8mm. This side/side endlink connects directly to the metal side/side linkage. It is used on all mk5 5 speed transmissions in 2006-2007.
What could be different on my car?
VW has been pretty consistent with the 2.5 5 speed cars. Lookout for your side/side bracket to be made of plastic. 2008+ cars switch to plastic brackets which use different bushings. It's possible late 2007 cars could use this plastic bracket.
If your car matches the specs above, you need the following shifter bushing kit:
