So these will finally be available to ship Friday after numerous problems with my machine shop.

Just a reminder, these replace the flexible rubber bushings that are at the end of your shifter cable where they connect to the transmission.
Replacing these will result in a more mechanical shifter feel when engaging the gears.
Another plus is these will last the life of the car, while the stock rubber ones will start to break down after 4-5 years (as i have seen in other cars).

Price is $39 shipped to lower 48 united states and the forum coupon code is valid for this product. I want to thank everyone for patiently waiting, and I promise a delay like this will not happen again.
As we grow, managing our supply chain is becoming easier and we are pairing up with very good suppliers.

I will post pictures as soon as they are delivered back to me from anodize. Please note they are NOT red, they will be blue similar to the color in my avatar.

They will be available to order on the website tomorrow night.

These things look great! They are ready to order on the website now.

Forte Cable End Bushings

Installation instructions will be up tomorrow night for those who want to look before they get them as I plan to complete them tomorrow afternoon.
I will also have better website photos complete too.

Here's a crappy cell phone pic in the meantime!

I didn't use anything, but if you use anything I would say anti-seize. These screws do not see any forces that will make them back out.
Even if they did, that thin shim and retaining pin that are there from the factory will keep the assembly together.

Got my bushing installed today and recorded my install. Going to edit the video and upload it later tonight.

The smaller bushing left a little play side to side so I picked up some washers from Lowes to shim it a little and see if I can tighten it up.
