TRD Short Shifter Rattle Noise, It's Normal?
I like the stock shifter with delrin rotational cup and cusco collar (no rattles). The feel would be even more direct without the big bushing on the lever; however, it helps decrease effort due to the extra weight which is nice.

T3 is good too, but the spring they use in the assembly is a touch firm imo. It was a bit too snappy for my taste. Shifting effort also increased.

I've tried the delrin collar bushing and cusco brass collar back to back. I preferred cusco since the feel seemed more consistent.

TRD Short Shifter Rattle Noise, It's Normal?
Sorry for kicking this old topic from the dead.
I have the same issue with a TRD short shifter that rattles above 5000rpm. The rattle is consistent with the engine revs. I have swapped the brass collar with an original. It makes less noise now and it's bearable. I do have a C's short shifter that I'll install soon and I'll report back if that resolved my issue as well. Wink

TRD Short Shifter Rattle Noise, It's Normal?
i installed an aliexpress short shifter, new bushings all around and it sounds quite loud (i guess its transmission noises)

the oem shifter has a rubber bushing between the part that sticks inside the T50 and the one that lives in the cabin, so i guess the trans noises where normal and that was the oem solution

sooo aliexpress short shifter + aliexpress TRD knob + G4 trans oil + Xenum VXR Gear did the trick
