Warranty replacement covers only the product. Labor claims, time loss, or freight charges will not be honored.

What Follows is a customer created "How To" that is designed to help you install these parts easily. These directions are not endorsed by EnergySuspensionParts.com - they are mearly provided here as reference material. 

One of the cheapest parts you can buy is also one of the most effective! The Energy Suspension Shifter Stabilizer Bushings are very effective in reducing any extra movement in your shifter. They're installed on the ends of the Shifter Holder so they can be used with any aftermarket shifter.

Step One: Securing and Raising Up Your Car

About 95% of the installation is done under the vehicle so obviously you'll need to be able to get yourself under there comfortably and SAFELY. Make sure your Hand Brake is securely set. Also since a lot of the work is done in very close proximity to the exhaust you'll want to give you car plenty of time to cool down.

Do not EVER work under your car without Jack Stands! The stock jack is not safe for working underneath your car! The weight of the car can easily shift using that jack because of its' small footprint.

You'll want to jack your car up on both sides at the front for this install - enough to easily work under the length the car.

Step Two: Interior Prep Work

Remove the Shift Knob. You'll be removing the entire shifter assembly so you'll need the shifter to be able to move through the shift boot. It's suggested that you also remove your center console so that you can get to the water seal around the shifter base - but it's not required.

Step Three: Removing the Shifter Stabilizer

There are only a couple bolts holding the entire shifter stabilizer assembly to the vehicle - you'll need to remove them all. You'll also need to remove the shift linkage where it connects to the shifter assembly.

The Shift Linkage connects to the shifter holder here. You'll need to remove the bolt that runs through it.

The front of the shifter stabilizer connects at the left side of the transmission here. Take this bolt out

PLEASE NOTE. This piece on D Series Engines will not look the same as this picture - the piece at the arrow will be smaller but the removal is the same.

The Rear connects at the back of the shifter assembly under the center of the vehicle. It should be on the other side of the exhaust assembly:

Now that you've removed the above bolts you can pull it out. You may need to slip your hand up by the shifter to push off the water seal. Once you get it all out you'll have this:

Step Four: Removing the OEM Bushings.

There are 2 bushings you're replacing. The front and the rear. Their removal is fairly easy.

The front OEM bushing isn't very firm so it simply pulls / pushes out. If you have any trouble with it just use a pair of pliers and yank it out.

The last picture is of the OEM bushing (left) and the new Energy Suspension bushing (right)

The rear OEM bushing is even easier - it just slips off the end of the shifter stabilizer.

Step Five Installing the new bushings.

The install of the front bushing is not as simple as its' removal was. (B Series)

It's simplified by the use of a large bolt with washers on each end. Lube up the bushing with some grease or motor oil so it will slip in a little easier.

Secure the bushing next to its' install point as shown in the first picture. BE ABSOLUTELY SURE that you have the concave side of the new bushing aligned so that it will point out from the tranny when installed! Once you get this piece in you will not be able to easily remove it! Torque it down until one portion of the bushing is half out as shown in the second picture.

Please note - if you're installing the D Series version of this bushing the install is greatly simplified because the bushing is installed in 2 halves.

When you have built up a little pressure with the bolts use a flathead screwdriver like you would a shoe horn. If done correctly the bushing will pop into place as shown in the last picture!

(the white stuff on the bushing is grease I used to ease the install.)

Just as simple as the removal was - you just slip the new one on the end. Be sure it's "hump" on one side is facing down.

Step Six.

Now you're ready to install the shifter stabilizer assembly! The install is the reverse of Step Three. Just put it in - bolt it up - connect the shift linkage to the end of the shifter and you're done.

Please note that if you removed the center console you'll want to pull the water seal back over its' mounting ring.

Jan Paolo Marasigan - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
The parts were easy to install and are very durable. Not the first time buying Energy Suspension parts for my vehicles. The previous parts from a few years back are still holding on, so I am sure this parts are going to do that just fine.

Ulisses Terriquez - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
Bushings are great, they do what theyre supposed to. Couple of surprises with this, however.\n\n-I expected these to be slightly more aggressive than stock, but its actually GREATLY more aggressive. The vibration is so extreme, that non-car enthusiasts that ride in my car ask if I get pulled over for the loud exhaust. The exhaust is stock, the vibration just makes it sound like there is an exhaust noise in cabin. From outside its quiet.\n-Install was a PAIN! Im not an expert mechanic, but Ive done general car maintenance for about 19 years for my personal cars - some of the more complex jobs Ive done was timing belt/water pump. I installed these in my 2001 Integra Type R. Studying the service manual and online DIYs, I estimated 8-10 hours for a full install; actual time was closer to 30 hours because of old bolts snapping, poor clearance, etc. \n\nIn the end, Im still happy with the product. The car is my weekend/fun/track car, so its not a big deal. If this were my daily, however, Id be upset.

Works great, easy to install.
4 out of 5 - good easy installation
Callie E Griffin - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
Bushings are still holding up well after 30,000 miles or so. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
5 out of 5 - Still great!
Ricardo Turman - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
Stiffened up the front/back shifter movement. Shifting is clunkier/more positive than before. Side-to-side slop in shifter is unchanged. Easy to install once I loosened the exhaust at the header collector. Be sure only to tighten the bolts on the longer bushing until the bushing begins to squish. Any tighter and the shifting may bind.
5 out of 5 - Good
Scott McCusker - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
these bushings really stiffen up the linkage and reduce the slop as well! the only thing I think they should mention is to use the metal bushings out of the old longer bushing. Editors Note: The instructions does state to reuse all OEM hardware.
5 out of 5 - great!
michael martinez - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
I bought these bushings and I compared them to factory honda bushings. They are feel stronger than oem bushings. Although when I out them back on, the oem honda bracket doesnt fit over the 2 holes bushing. Also it made my shoft linkage too close to the body of my car from the side of the bushings. I had to bend the shift linkage down a little so that it would fit. Although I am very satisfied with the bushings.
4 out of 5 - Feel really good and strong
Vincent Corridore - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
Yes holding up awesome! I have 5 civics and they all have these bushings on them! I for sure put them to the test everyday!

Kostas Bouras - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
I love how quick and easy it was to install, of course I work at a shop so I racked my car on a lift and took me 2 minutes. But you can feel a HUGEEE differnece right away! I would strongly recommend this product any day especially with a killer price you will be satisfied with the results. I get all of my bushings in red because I like to see which ones ive done and need to do!
5 out of 5 - awesome product! !
Chris Barnes - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
Shifting is really smooth now and installation was really straight forward and easy. Looking to get more products for my build.
5 out of 5 - Great. No complaints.
Alan L. Inthapatha - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
If you have a 92-00 Honda/Acura you need these bushings. The stock bushings deteriorate with age and are pretty soft to begin with. The shifter has way less free movement in it (before you could move it like it was in neutral while in gear) and the shifter feels stronger and more defined. These are a must if you are installing a short throw shifter, and you cant beat the price. I was able to remove the old bushing and install the new ones by hand (pressed one in with a bench vice) and the other bolted right up to the chassis.
5 out of 5 - Dramatic Difference

I would have paid a little more to have the metal cylinder pieces on part just to make it that much more user friendly. However my shifter isn't loose anymore.
5 out of 5 - Easy install
Travis Hill - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
If you plan on changing out your shift linkage or you're changing to a short shift, do yourself the favor and pick these up. I found these through team-integra.com and would recommend them to anyone looking for aftermarket bushings that are affordable. As well i intend to purchase any bushings i need in the future from these guys. If i could rate it a 10 i would, but unfortunately tis a 5 point scale.
5 out of 5 - best value for your money anywhere
edward randolph - . Energy Suspension 16.1101

These bushings make shifting so much more crisp. you actually know when its in gear compared to the spongy OEM parts. installation was a breeze as well.
5 out of 5 - Amazing

Installed the part a few days after receiving it and I LOVE it, makes shifting so much better than the stock bushing! Recommend it!!!
5 out of 5 - Amazing
Arturo Perez - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
Great product from Energy Suspension. Installed a B&M short shifter plus a Skunk2 knob and the bushings really helped to compliment the setup. I did get a slight increase in vibration to the shift knob but I generally expected this to happen. Overall very satisfied.
5 out of 5 - Very pleased
Walter Maldonado - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
After I installed the new shift linkage stabilizers, the shifts were much smoother. I got a more precise feel and just that much more enjoyment out of driving the car. Thanks Energy Suspension!!
5 out of 5 - works great!!
tou yer yang - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
Installation of these was very easy - I did not need special tools or procedures to place the bushings. I was able to install the bushings without removing any exhaust parts or unnecessary shifter mechanisms/parts. After about 2-3 months of use I have no squeaks nor complaints.
5 out of 5 - Easy install - stiffer shift feel
PR - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
Shifts like a dream now. Tightened up the play in the shifter and smooth as butter
5 out of 5 - thoroughly satisfied.
Chris Sexton - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
Easy to install and made shifting smoother and firm. No play in the shifter after installing these bushings with a short shifter.
5 out of 5 - Very impressed!
Stephen Montoya - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
I got the part pretty quickly, and they fit real snug now. When I shift I can actually feel it click when it goes in down the track. Good upgrade for great price.

Suvit Tongkul - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
After hearing all the talk about Energy Suspension bushings, I decided to get a set of the shifter bushings for my 95 Integra GSR. First off, let me just say that Energy Suspension has great customer service, and they get the parts to your doorstep in record time. The installation for these bushings was simple, but they sure make a difference in shifter feel and in each individual shift. There's no reason why you shouldn't get these for your car, especially for the price. All of my future cars are getting ES shifter bushings.
5 out of 5 - Amazed to say the least
Jarrod Henry - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
I purchased this product about a month or so ago and I have felt and seen some moderate change in the feel of the shifts and how consistent they are. I would without a doubt recommend this to any one I know.
5 out of 5 - very nice product
Justin Robson - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
Very easy to install Shifts smoother. You cant go wrong for the price.
5 out of 5 - Very good product
Sylvan - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
Just installed these today, replacing my 14 year old rubber bushings. Can immediately feel a crispness in the shifts, but nothing that stands out as an incredible upgrade. Quality product, would recommend.
4 out of 5 - Quality product, much stronger than stock
Jeffrey Lamborn - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
Prompt delivery of the part and it fit perfectly on my car. Thank You!
5 out of 5 - Great product, Great service!
Rachel Lujan - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
ES is a great company to begin with, but the ease of use and install was very simple. Took all of 25 minutes. I will def purchase all of my ES parts from here.
5 out of 5 - Great
stephanie spear - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
Nice! Like-new, if not better than new, feel to the shifter. Shifts are now precise and tight. No more sloppy play in gear. Great product and I recommend it to all of my Honda driving friends. It is truly a must have for any enthusiast.
5 out of 5 - Great Product
Michael Naish - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
Easy to install worth every penny. Gives you a more solid and smooth shift.
5 out of 5 - Worth the money.
Sokhen Im - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
I used these bushings in conjunction to installing a skunk short shifter. they fit was perfect and the throw is like a screwdriver in a can of oil- smooth!
5 out of 5 - smooth!
Jose Llamas - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
Love this product. My shifts are firm not sloppy like before. I plan on replacing all my worn out bushings through energy suspension.
5 out of 5
steve prellwitz - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
Very nice addition to any motor mount inserts. Really takes all the slop out of your shifter. Nice firm shifts. Very easy to install, the instructions listed on here will help you get them installed quickly. Who would of thought one of the cheapest parts for your car is the most rewarding.
5 out of 5 - Get that slop out
Ryan - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
It took a bit of twisting and contorting to get flanged end of the stabilizer bar through the more rectangular bushing.  I had all but given up when it finally popped.  I had recently replaced the transmission fluid with GM Synchromesh and the new fluid along with these bushing made for butter smooth shifts.  Even the wife agrees with the result so it must be worth it.  
5 out of 5 - tricky install but worth the elbow grease
Jordan - . Energy Suspension 16.1101
I have a lot of parts put into my drive train but this is one of the most simple and easy to install parts that i have found that produces a great response. Shifts are solid and to the punch just like i have to have it its a must have for any tuner buy one as soon as you have a chance.
5 out of 5 - a must have for any car
