Much Needed Refinement for the OEM Shifter
The OEM base bushings on most Hondas and Acuras are made from highly compliant rubber. Thanks to leverage, the small amount of compliance the rubber adds equates to a very noticable "spongy" feeling in the shift knob during shifts. This bushing kit replaces the OEM rubber bushings with rigid 6061-T651 aluminum making for a much more decisive shift, even with a stock shifter. As an added touch, the bushings are coated in a purple Type 2 anodized finished, laser etched, and paired with class 12.9 flat-head mounting bolts.

These base bushings are amazing! Surprisingly these little guys make a big difference if the feel of the shifter; they go great with my acuitt shift knob! Can't wait until I pickup the whole shifter assembly!
Best Bang for your buck!
Customer of mine wanted a crisper more refined shift for their 2013 9th Gen Civic and decided to purchase shifter base bushings. I went ahead and ordered directly from Acuity for them and no big surprise UPS is still a bad delivery service and decided to hold onto the product for 4 days before deciding to return it to Acuity. Luckily Acuity is an awesome company and stepped up to get the product to me on time from one of their vendors here in Canada. I like that these shifter bushings come with replacement bolts with a tapered head giving even less opportunity for unwanted movement. These paired with a short shifter adapter give the Civic a much crisper more refined shift. I was so impressed I purchased a set for my own personal 2015 9th Gen Civic and one of my coworkers will now be purchasing a set for his 8th Gen Civic on his next upgrade run.
Paired with another brands short shifter and still not satisfied with the rigidity. Not a short fall of the bushings but don't expect to be finished with your shifter feel. I'll need to upgrade my short shifter to Acuity's.
