You might have had trouble because you said bearings instead of bushings but the dealer is probably the only place to get them anyway.

Finding shifter bushings for any old Subaru is strictly a go-to-the-dealer proposition. No one else makes them...

By the way, Conker, let me know how the bushing install goes, as I need to do them on my XT soon... I just went through that with my Legacy and it was a royal PITA...

Of course, yours is 2WD, that's probably a cinch anyway:banghead:

when trying to shift quickly, the shifter often hangs and I have to wiggle it around to get it in. Is this because of slop, or because subaru wagons just aren't quick shifters? It moves around okay, a bit rubbery feeling, but from the other manual wagon I drove this seems to be normal. It does have 270k km on it.
