We have taken the idea from our Race-Spec Shifter Cables and made a new cable bushing that incorporates a spherical bearing to allow greater movement while retaining the same stiff feel. The bushing is now two piece with a delrin spherical bearing. This design allows for greater movement while retaining that positive feedback. Cable bushings have a small sleeve which is uses on certain applications inside the larger bushing to accomdate more applications.
K-Tuned Shifter Cable Bushings are a simple and easy to install upgrade that improves shift feel and accuracy. These bushings are installed on both transmission side connections of the cables and are made with solid 6061 billet aluminum and feature a spherical bearing on the larger front-back cable.
OEM shifter cables are made with rubber bushings at the cable ends, which can be responsible for mushy or soft feeling gear changes. This is because the rubber material can wear out and deteriorate over time. In some cases, failure at these connections can even lead to transmission synchronizer and gear damage. We have even seen damaged shift selector parts on occasion.
The unique dual O-ring design of these billet bushings allows for very slight flexibility at the joint which is critical for precise shifting. Without this movement, binding can occur. Both bushings are clear anodized to protect them from corrosion and we include all hardware needed for installation. With this kit, you'll get 2 reusable hairpin style cotter pins for both cable end connections, and 2 bushing retaining clips.

Decent, but a little disappointed

I think I meant to order the Hybrid Racing units due to the reviews. I don't know why I ordered these. I must've been in a hurry. I had them on for a few days and had added a heavy Skunk 2 shifter knob and solid shifter base bushings. The whole package was a nice upgrade, however the first time I went to rapidly shift from 1st to 2nd, the clip/cotter pin that comes with the unit COLLAPSED and the bushing nearly came out! I had to shave a mm or so off of the center shaft and install the large, thick flat washer that was on the original rubber bushing with a new cotter pin. This was within a week of installation. What's funny is that I was a little nervous about that VERY thing when I installed it. I thought, "there isnt much strength, here". So much for ignoring that 'little voice' inside my head. NOW they seem fine.
