SURE ANCHORS FOR 2004-2009 Mazda 3 MT & MS3

From the factory, your manual Mazda transmission shifter assembly is mounted to the body using soft rubber grommets. These OEM rubber grommets make manual shifting soft and careless. During spirited driving, these flexible rubber grommets hinder defined shifting. The proper approach to a rock solid shifter assembly starts with
SURE Anchors™. Our machined aluminum SURE Anchors™ greatly reduce the chance of missing a gear shift and provide a much more accurate, tactile shifting response.

Make the most of your zoom-zoom with our over-engineered SURE Anchors™.


One may ask, how are these any different than other products already on the market!? Well the difference is in the design. To ensure the tightest and most rigid fitment of the shifter cage to the body of your vehicle, Anchors™ use a +/- .002″ press-fit, tapered design. This design is the only one like it on the market. Once installed, the shifter assembly becomes one with the vehicle.
Each set of Anchors™ is specifically designed for proper fitment to your model vehicle.


After installation, the center console will hide the Anchors™ from being visible. However, this didn’t stop us from finishing all SURE Anchor™ components in a SURE Blue anodize!


The OEM bushing is made of soft rubber. Below is a side by side comparison of SURE Anchor™ and an OEM Mazdaspeed 3 rubber grommet.

5 of 5 Tight May 23, 2013
Reviewer: Daniel Wright from Maineville, OH United States  
Literally tight solid feel to shifts. They need some finessing to get them in there, but once in the assembly will never flex again. The Blue looks great also (even though I never see it).

5 of 5 Small Mod, Big Difference May 6, 2012
Reviewer: Nicholas Anderson from Dover, DE United States  
This installation is easy as pie. Don't flex your plastics too much when removing your center console pieces and they'll come out with no issues. The removal of the OEM bushings was fairly easy except for the one directly underneath the reverse cable rigging. You CAN use an extension as long as you don't use a deepwell socket. Otherwise you could use a universal joint. I chose the aforementioned option and as long as you don't flec the rigging, it'll be fine. If you'd like to make it easier on yourself, loosen them all and replace them with the Anchors, one by one. This will save unnecessary R2 of the whole housing and sliding of the Anchors. Slap it all tight and back together and you'll have a solid shift that acts like it knows where you're putting it, for once. Love these in unison with the Counterweight and Shortcut.

5 of 5 Awesome! March 16, 2012
Reviewer: Anthony from Branchburg, NJ United States  
If you are worried about the installation because you have to take the center console apart, don't be. If the installation was any easier, I would think i did something wrong. Combine it with the other SURE shifter products and you'll have perfect shifts.

5 of 5 maybe a 4.5...? January 21, 2012
Reviewer: Zachary Ford from North Richland Hills, TX United States  
fairly simple to install, only the top washers are a tight fit, which i guess is how it should be...had to tighten them in with the socket wrench, i dont notice a smoother shift in an economical driving point of view, but if im letting her pick up speed its like a flawless shift everytime
