Your OEM Bushings Suck:
Bad news: it's true. 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).

Huge difference in shifter feel, especially with the other parts and shift knob. So much smoother on the civic si.
Fast delivery. Great package. Quality parts. Shifting feels more solid and tight....Well worth it. Highly recommend
Received the wrong package after ordering but my issue was resolved very promptly and with great support. I’m happy with the customer service as well as the product.
These bushing make all that crunchy shifts go away
And makes a more solid shift feeling
I paired this with the boomba short throw adapter and it was like night and day
If your on the fence about buying these bushing don’t be they are with it
I order my parts through Amazon with prime and it came in two days. When it came in I went straight to install them in my 2018 civic si. When i installed the bushing without the spherical bearing i was not able to push it through easily i had to slightly hammer it in with a rachet. When I did the bushing with spherical bearing it was impossible. I got so frustrated and mad that i just put the ond one back on. Every single video i watched for the install was super easy for them and it slid right in. So i ran it with only one bushing on. Contacted Acuity friday night and the following day on a saturday Russ contacted me via phone. And told me about why i was not able to install it due to a batch of rings that were not greased that shipped out. He was very nice, informative, and had wonderful customer service. He told me that he would replace the bushing for free due to the o-rings being at fault for Not being able to install.
When i got the new bushings it turns out that the batch i got from amazon was the wrong part number. The one sent from acuity directly was a different part number but the correct bushing because when i got it. It installed perfectly without a single sweat. The box that came in from amazon had the right part number on box but was different on the bushings. I was obviously different because the one from amazon was bigger than the on sent from Acuity. I dont know who was at fault but Russ made my bad experience turn into a great experience.
Before Russ called i said i was done with acuity products and was committed to give a bad review. But the kind of customer service he gave was awesome. The shifter bushings were also awesome and fit like a glove. The rings were super easy to install also. Just make sure you push both bushings all the way in and then put the ring on like how you would do a key ring. Its okay to kind of flex the rings alittle. Not bend but flex. Shifter feels awesome definitely worth the upgrade. No more spongy and more...
