Bad news: your OEM bushings suck

Honda intentionally makes their rubber shifter cable bushings very compliant in an effort to give the car a more tame feel. For many drivers, that's ideal. Unfortunately, this disconnects the driver from feeling the transmission during shifts, often leading to missed shifts or slow shifting in racing conditions. A less compliant plastic or metal bushing is the ideal solution, but without a spherical bearing, the bushing will cause the cables to bind and fatigue. That's why ACUITY has designed this kit with a custom acetal and aluminum spherical bushing. Also unlike most bushings on the market, ACUITY's design incorporates elastomer rings to provide the best fit possible with your cables. Experience a solid, smooth shift that will make you fall in love with your car again.

Understanding the Science of that Perfect Shift Feel:

Years of experience have taught the engineers at ACUITY that there are many elements to a refined, responsive shift. Compliance from flimsy components in the shift linkage leave the driver feeling detached from the transmission. ACUITY combats this by replacing the OEM rubber bushings with much stiffer Acetal and 6061-T6 Aluminum. A large-diameter, custom spherical bearing minimizes long-term wear and tear while eliminating the binding that is caused by most aftermarket solid shifter cable bushings. Loose fitting components also contribute to a poor shifting feel. That's why ACUITY uses integral o-rings on the outside of each bushing to provide a perfect fit with your OEM cables. Tested on street cars, track cars, and ACUITY's unreasonably violent shifter testing machine, these bushings are designed to be robust and proven to last. Each bushing kit is laser etched with a unique serial number and includes stainless steel hardware to help prevent long-term corrosion, keeping your bushings looking great even longer. And if all of that isn't impressive enough, the bushings are over 20% lighter than their OEM counterparts, weighing in at only 48 grams (with hardware).

    Please note that all shipments ship the business day (mon-fri, except on holidays) after they are received. 

    Next-Day Shipping Policy:

    Shipments are sent only after payment has been received. ACUITY Instruments LLC reserves the right to delay shipments temporarily if credit card fraud is suspected. ACUITY Instruments LLC ships all orders on the next business day. This means that if you purchase the "next day" shipping option, next day shipping will go out the next day, meaning a total transit time of 2-days. Similarly, 2-day shipping takes 3 days since the order is filled the next day. If you require faster shipping, we recommend you contact one of our vendors that carries inventory.

    Shipping Options:

    Everyone loves lots of shipping options! We offer USPS, UPS, and FedEx shipping options for domestic (within the United States) shipments and USPS, UPS, FedEX and DHL for international shipments. For your convenience, we offer shipping options with transit times as low as 2 business days. At this time, we do not offer next-day shipping options. 


    Shipping Insurance and Signature Policy:

    Acuity insures all packages it ships. This insurance covers damage to or loss of the product while in transit only. This does not cover theft of the package after delivery. Because of this, a signature is required for delivery of all orders over $100 (before shipping costs). If you will not be available to receive the shipment, many carriers permit the recipient to leave a note on the door instructing them to leave the package. If you choose to do this, please remember that Acuity Instruments LLC cannot insure packages that are stolen.

    Free Shipping Options:

    Occasionally we offer shipping specials where orders over a certain amount are free. If we are offering this, you will see the free shipping option in your cart at checkout. If no options is visible at checkout, then either there is currently no free shipping offer or you are not in a zone that qualifies for free shipping. Most states in the continental USA qualify when a shipping special is being ordered. There is no choice of carrier for free shipping, but typically we will ship your order will likely ship using either USPS or FedEx. If you'd like a faster delivery, you can opt out of the Free Shipping option in favor of a faster, paid, shipping option.

     

    Taxes on International Shipments:

    It is against Acuity's policy to falsify tax documents during the shipment of goods to locations outside of the USA. The tax documents for your shipment will reflect the price you paid for the parts. Please do not contact us requesting us to falsify tax documents so that you do not have to pay taxes on the shipment as we cannot do this.

    Guaranteed Times by Carriers and Related Reimbursements:

    On some shipping services, like USPS Priority Express, the service provider (USPS, UPS, DHL etc) will offer a shipping reimbursement if the order does not arrive on time. ACUITY does not assume responsibility for tracking these matters. If you suspect your service may have a delivery-time guarantee and was delivered late, please contact us with the order # and delivery info. Please note that a full refund is typically not provided by the carrier. ACUITY does not offer full reimbursement of shipping costs, but ACUITY will pass on 100% of any reimbursement for shipping costs from the carrier to the customer.

    Domestic Transit Times:

    For orders shipping within the continental USA, USPS First Class shipments will usually take around 5-7 business days for delivery. USPS Priority usually takes closer to 2-4 business days, and Priority Express usually takes about 2 business days. Your exact transit time will vary based on your location. 

     

    International Transit Times:

    USPS First Class International shipping is very economical, but the transit time can be very slow. Please allow up to 4 weeks for delivery of orders shipped via USPS First Class International. USPS Priority mail is typically faster, normally taking closer to 2 weeks. USPS GXG is faster still, typically taking only about 1 week. Your exact transit times will vary depending on your location, and it is possible that your exact transit time will exceed the values provided here. For best results on international shipments, however, we recommend avoiding USPS options in favor of FedEx, UPS, or DHL shipping methods.

    Warranty Requests

    All ACUITY products are covered by a 1-year warranty against manufacturer defect. Please keep a copy of your receipt as a proof of purchase when contacting ACUITY with a warranty request. Please do not ship back any merchandise without a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. Contact ACUITY to receive an RMA number.

     

    Returns

    Customers are responsible for all return shipping charges. Please do not ship back any merchandise without a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. Contact ACUITY to receive an RMA number.  ACUITY permits returns with no fees if the product is returned within 14 days of delivery, if it is unopened and in its original packaging. If the product has been removed from the original packaging, has not been installed in any way, and requires repackaging but is in 100% sale-able condition (to be determined by ACUITY) a restocking fee will be assessed in an amount equal to the greater of $5 or 10% of the cost of the product. ACUITY will not refund any shipping and handling fees related to a returned purchase. Valid proof of purchase must be provided to receive an RMA number. Any purchases made through one of ACUITY's vendor's are subject to that vendor's return policies. ACUITY cannot accept the return of an item purchased through a vendor without the consent of ACUITY and said vendor. Please Note: If 2 items were ordered and the order qualified for free shipping, but the return of 1 of the 2 items brings the new invoice amount (after your refund) below $100, the original cost of shipping will be debited from your refund, since the order would no longer be eligible for free shipping.

      It’s great

      If you’re looking for a cost effective mod to do for your car, it’s definitely gotta be cable bushings I own a 2019 Honda Civic SI and I always felt that going through first gear to second gear was very sluggish. Then I got the and the feeling is gone deafly would recommend the next item I’m going for is definitely for the short shifter assembly.

      My 2013 Civic Si coupe...

      Bought this for my 2013 Civic Si coupe and didn't take me long to install, about 45 mins. Including cleaning things on the engine as I went. Hondas, in general, are known for how smooth the MT shifts feel, but adding these bushing made a significant improvement on an already good feeling shifter. Rowing through the gears, the shifter is incredibly smooth and for how easy the install was, this was defintely worth it.

      Great product

      Install was simple and to be honest i wasnt expecting much difference for such a small upgrade but man… completely changed the feel of the shifter for the better. which ultimately changed the feel of the car. I installed these along with the shifter base bushings and its a night and day difference in shift feel 10/10 recommend. Btw this was on my 13 acura ilx 2.4 manual 👌

      Just do it

      Zero regrets.
      It’s like adding a stick of butter to your shifter, no longer have to fear the notorious grind at high rpms.
