Has anyone had a caster bush kit fitted?

Comments/experiences?

More specifically can anyone confirm/deny that the front lower control arms are different on BJ and BJII Astina's?

Whiteline claim a KCA337 caster bush will go onto a BJ, but the image on their webstore for this part number doesn't look :? right for this application.

Cheers

Don't worry. No such beast exists from Whiteline to suit the BJII. :(

I was at Whiteline talking with The Man Wojtek today.

Caster kits are only available for BJ1's, camber only for BJ2 at this stage.

Critter,

Hassle him. Get one made so I can get some too!!!! :twisted:

They've done it for a Celica with our style mounts, so it CAN be done.

I will be doing just that when I am there next Thursday.

I promise you, it is the last piece in the chassis that needs attending to. He will have mine to work from.

Is it their adjustable rear bar you have? I am having one put on when I am there.

I got the lower control arm bushes on my BA and made a nice difference.
Car felt more sold in cornering. I was trying to get a anti-lift kit but the
BA already has horizontal lower control arm so I just got the nolathane
straight bushes which were great anyway.

Yeah, It is the Whiteline adjustable rear bar that I have.

I have been very pleased with its effect. 8)

It would be good to dial out some of the anti-lift and reduce that hideous bone-jarring wheel hop!

Best of luck

If you think the wheel hop is bad on our cars, you orta try a Pulsar SSS N14.

Had one of those some years back and full noise out of tightish corners was ridiculous. Astinas are MUCH better, tho I understand what you mean....

Thats where I think the Koni yellows will come into their own. By adjusting them
stiffer on the rear you can reduce the weight shift to the back on takeoff but will
also help induce nose dive. I think with a bit of trial and effort you can find a nice
compromise. I know they are the next item on my suspension wishlist should have
done it when the original work was done when I had money to do them now I need
them but have no cash :( Will get there eventually.
