It sounds like the spring is either not installed or incorrectly installed. The bushins will make the stick more solid but the spring is what makes it return to center

I'm confused about your swap, is it a WRX or Legacy tranny? I believe the older MT5 is a cable clutch but either way it should bolt up fine. The starter neeeds different length bolts than a 4EAT but should bolt in at the same location without modification to the case. The cable and hydro pedal boxes are different and not interchangeable

Its a 95/96 legacy tranny, and the 96 impreza pedal box is cable so I need a cable slave and master as well correct?

Negative, cable goes directly to the fork. No master or slace cylinders on cable clutches. I have a few extra parts lying around from the swaps I've done, a ton of bolts and some other random parts. I'm going to the fair tomorrow if you wanna meet. Those seats you sold me are great btw, took some head scratching to fit but I love 'em

Yeah, the brake master cylinder connects the same and the gas pedal is seperate anyway. I had the pedal box installed before I did the swap and it was a little weird to drive an automatic with a clutch. For the seats all I did was use cross bars on top of oem seat rails. I'm gonna post a write up with the pics I took

I'm pretty sure hydro and cable clutches are the same other than the clutch fork being a little different.

That seems to confirm that it's missing, I'll take a pic of what I'm talking about tomorrow. If the shifter has no resistance side to side then I doubt it's the bushings

Yea, I wasn't really sure if it was the bushings or not, just kind of took a guess. I've never had my RS's shifter area apart, so I didn't know what else was needed since this 96L was obv Auto before I swapped it. But thanks, a picture would be helpful/part number if thats easier for you!

There shouldn't be any spring the joint is on the trans it's where the linkage from the shifter attaches to the trans theres a joint there and that will give you a side to side wobble while ur in gear if the bushings are bad in it
