    I was wondering if anyone has some tips on how to get that new car shifting feel back into my 92 Accord LX. It has around 180K miles on it, so I realize things wear out over time. What can I replace to get it feeling tight again?

    I don't think cable shifters use bushings...

    Oh boy, here comes the burn!

    How do I adjust the cables? In the car or out at the tranny? A couple quick destructions would be greatly appreciated! :)

    I've never messed with an Accord or Prelude, i just know they use cables though. The cables might not even be adjustable for all I know, because I've only seen people replace the shifter(4bidden sells one) or use short shift adapters.

    i would just get either new bushings, which cable boxes use, or just replace it with a new short shifter one, i could be wrong, but i think this might work, its for a prelude, but i do know some prelude stuff works for accords, give it some research, but if it works, this is the best option possible.

    short shifter
