Only fits early model yr cars... Ones without the torque bar IIRC. What year is your car?

TomatoSoup is right, the 2006 cars all have that bushing, most all of the 2007 2.4L cars have that bushing, all 2006-2009 automatic cars have that bushings, some very early 2007 GXP/Redlines have that bushing however most do not, all 2008-2009 GXP/Redlines do not have that bushing. Hopefully that makes sense, so

2006 - All cars have that bushing
2007 - All automatic cars have that bushing
Almost all manual 2.4L cars have that bushing
Most manual GXP/Redlines do not have that bushing
2008 - All automatic cars have that bushing
All manual 2.4L and GXP/Redlines do not have that bushing
2009 - All automatic cars have that bushing
All manual 2.4L and GXP/Redlines do not have that bushing

As for the shifting noise, it is a little bit of a chance when replacing that bushing. We have installed some that made the noise go away completely, we have installed some and the noise did not change and we have installed a couple that the noise was still there and maybe a little more noise.

Hope that helps,
Dave
