View Full Version : Shifter cable bushing question

Will these fit the 3rd gen 3sgte? It says celica 2000+ but also MR2(all years) so i'm guessing yes but I just wanna be sure so i dont buy em for nothing seeing as the original 22 year old ones are finished

I would say by MR2 they are actually talking about the Spyder, just based on the other cars listed.

If you're wanting brass bushing, go to Speed-Source.net. That's where I got mine. Before you order it would probably be best to measure the old ones if possible. Depending on the year of the tranny, there are a several different sizes and in a couple of model years they changed mid year. I ran into this on my car.

Hux racing has a better design ;)

The Toyota version of the kit fits It fits most front wheel drive toyota cars with manual transmission. It fits MR2 85'-95', MR2 Spyder, Corolla, Tercel, Camry, Celica, New Celica, Matrix, Scion Tc, Pontiac Vibe and more!

The Toyota BIG! version of the kit fits 93' to 99' Celica, 94'+ Camry and Solara, and Scion Xa, Xb. One of the bushings is much larger than in the regular kit.

I had been to the site before and yet it still somewhat unclear:
it fits most front wheel drive toyota cars
It fits MR2 85'-95', MR2 Spyder
Also there is no mention of the 3rd gen 3sgte, leading me to speculate that they are pretty much all the same. But like I said i'd like to be sure.

i know CRW sells a spherical bearing for the shifter cable. you can get the same bearing from mcmaster.com (part# 2995K32) for a little over $20ea. there may be something necessary to make them fit correctly though. i know a rollerblade bearing presses right in too, since i've been using one on the shift cable for several years now, but the spherical bearing is a much better design.
