Fastline Performance Compliance Bearings by PCI, 2004-08 Acura TSX



The lower control arm compliance bushings on later model Honda and Acura cars are notorious for failing prematurely. This is especially the case for cars with V6 power-trains. The added weight and torque output of the engine wreaks havoc on these bushings, wearing them out in 60,000 miles or less. Very uncharacteristic for a product that is lauded for it's reliability.

Fastline Performance has teamed up with top-level design and production studio Pro-Car Innovations to release a permanent solution to the ever-problematic compliance bushing. Until now, all that could be done to remedy the issue was to replace with new OEM parts. Now, PCI's highly engineered spherical bearing mount has been adapted for use on the popular late-model Acura vehicles that Heeltoe specializes in.

Included with this kit are a pair of spherical bearing compliance bushings and trailing lower control arm bushings. The bearing housings are cnc machined from 6061 aluminum, and anodized. The spacers are cnc machined from 4130 steel, and zinc plated. PCI warranties the product for up to 2 years from manufacturer defects.

Overall benefits:
Reduced torque steer
Better power delivery to the ground
Improved high-speed stability
Reduce wheel hop

  • Highly Recommended!! July, 28
    By 2004 TL, Spirited/Stylish Commuter
    Very happy with this (compliance bushings) upgrade. I would urge anyone w/ a 3rd gen TL or any other Honda/Acura where these bushings can be replaced to do so.
  • Great Upgrade June, 23
    By 06 TL Owner, Spirited/Stylish Commuter
    Family sedan. Stock everything. Except for these. Great handling over the rubber bushings. Not too much rougher; actually smoother over good roads. Great service and support from Marcus throughout the process including post-sale. He gave me great help with installation. Permanent fix for this design issue. Again, can't recommend these enough. DIY on Acurazine.

    This should of been my first upgrade! My TL-S is awesome at cornering with these with less under steering.. I'm a DYI'r but I had the bushings pressed in by a machine shop. I'm happy I listened to HeelToe and appreciate the service they provide..

    Got these on a couple weeks ago, as the TL I recently purchased had cracked/torn bushings. Although I dont have a comparison with good stock bushings, I can say that these feel amazing. Very responsive, you can literally feel every change in the road surface and only a minor change in ride quality. On bad roads you feel the potholes/poor surface traveling through the front end quite a bit more, but the trade off on the highway and nice roads is well worth it. Oh and the service I received was well beyond what I could have expected, would NEVER hesitate to buy from Marcus/Heel Toe again, you've got a customer for life my man, thanks again.

    These bushings are excellent. The ride is much smoother than the OEM rubber bushings. Since they are 99% metal, I thought you would feel everything through the steering wheel...well you don't. Excellent bushing. Strongly recommend!!!
