Default Scion xD Shifter Buyer's Guide

It had to happen eventually. You poor xD people are lacking in FAQs and Stickies.... so here is my first contribution. Contained here within... short shift kits, shifter bushings, and some install/product info.

If everything goes well with the Dr Isotope bushings, that also means that the Speed Source bushings for the tC will also fit and opens a few more doors. If you know of any other parts... please link... and I'll add them to the tables.

i got the trd quick shifter. it makes it feel so much more responsive and sporty, helps the acceleration too.

All those bushings are used at the same time?? The cage bushings are the same, no?? What about the cable bushings? What's what?

if you pull it all apart there are two sets of bushings if not im not mistaken there are four of them on the white plastic housing that hold the whole thing to the body of the car and more bushings that are actually hooked to the cables themselves so they are different.

indeed, there is truth in his reply. personally i have ordered both the cage and cable bushings from NST (and even their SSK!). cage busings replace the factory rubber bushings holding the shift "cage" to the car. the cable bushings go into the engine bay replacing the factory rubber there. hope that clears up some muck. (if not, well im buzzed and i hope i helped someone, it took me like 10 min to get this all spelled right )

the engine bay one takes less time. they both shorten shifts the same amount (30% i think). i went with the in-cabin just cause i hadn't seen many who had, and cause it was a tad cheaper. took longer but am still happy with it all the same. you can install both and get even shorter throws too.

Ok thanks. The engine one is out of stock on NST website, is there anywhere else it is available? no luck on ebay either.
