Boomba Racing aluminum cable bracket bushings are a direct replacement for the OEM rubber bushings. Once installed, they completely eliminate excess movement in the shifter cable bracket, creating a much more precise and exact shifting experience.
These bushings are precision CNC machined from high quality aircraft grade billet aluminum and are available in 4 different colors: Natural Aluminum, and Red, Black or Blue Anodized.

Great product, high quality, looks awesome and machined very well. I put a little dab of gorilla glue on each bushing and clamped it for a few minutes before installing into engine bay. There were no instructions included so YouTube was the way to go. When installing the lower bushings, put the smaller bushing on top and the thicker bushing on the bottom. When it comes to the vertical bushing, put the thicker bushing on the outside left, near the bolt head, and the thinner bushing on the inside. If you flip these the other way around d, the bolts will not thread. BE CAREFULof the small bracket that holds the reverse cable. Once you remove the bolt, there will be nothing holding it in place and it will more than likely fall into the engine pan. This is a pain, as you now have to find it and fish it out. You DO NOT have to take the battery box out for this install. I was installing several parts all at one time and found d that this was the best way as it allowed for much more space to work with.
excellent fit, great quality and about all it does exactly what your hoping for i love the the feel this puts in my hands during a shift! as usual boomba shines!
Make for a far more mechanical feel and sound of shifting. After having them I'll never drive without them
These solid aluminum bushings remove all traces of flex in the transmission bracket. Installation was a buy trying due to the bolt locations, but that is a Ford problem, not a Boomba problem. Using a dab of hot glue on each side of each bushing to hold it in place during install worked very well. These bushings, combined with the shifter base bushings are a great, quick upgrade for your Focus ST/RS. The shifter has a much more bolt-action like feel.
These cable bracket bushings took my Focus ST shifter from sloppy to solid with an increase in positive engagement. Worth every penny.
You find realize how much the shifter bracket moves about, until you install these bushings. Shifting is much more crisp, and precise, especially if you couple them up with a new shifter cable bushing.
Stock ones are rubber and my st has 30,000 miles on it when i took old cable bushing out (made of rubber) they had holes and were falling apart. The shift is much smoother, also i believe It would help protect your tranny bc if the stock ones fall apart its metal on metal with alot of unnecessary free play that would probably result bad later
I was skeptical to say the least when I purchased these. I have to say I've never been happier to be so wrong. They tighten up the shifting experience so much and gives the car a greater "performance" feel that you may not expect out of something so small and seemingly insignificant. It changes the whole driving experience. Night and day! I paired thsee with a 270kg weighted shift knob and I feel like I'm driving a whole new car!
Boomba has impressed me again! Want to say that although my super high expectations were not met (probably because I need the shifter base bushing kit) there is a noticeable difference in feel especially from 2nd on up. Great product!
