Hey guys...

do you know if Whiteline still makes the front bushing with the increased castor? When I do a search on the US and AU sites for suzuki, swift, etc. it doesn't show up anymore.

Thanks.

You can order the Superpro poly in either .5 or 1 degree castor correction. 3 to 6 weeks wait. To be honest the whiteline ones were back ordered and where coming from Australia also. They took a little more than 6 weeks to arrive.

Nice! Now does anyone remember if the white line ones were 1 or 0.5 degree?

I had the whiteline and it didn’t have two angles to choose from. What I do remember was I needed two hands to turn the wheel when parking...

If you are able see if you can find a part number for front sway bar bushings that will fit a 95 Metro with a 19mm bar. I have had no luck anywhere
 
The Whiteline + caster bushings were adjustable by adding spacers - up to 1 degree. The company had a short term with a US office based out of California. I ordered a full bushing set from them 5 or 6 years ago. Originally from Australia, they are still in operation.

You can type 19mm sway bar bushing into the Ebay search field and get a hundred listings. ;)
 
Thanks guys! I haven't used Ebay for years now...

Ever since I was burnt by someone who shipped me what was a pristine Pioneer turntable... That idiot left the platter in the turntable, placed it in a box that measure 36" cube and stuffed it with old clothes, cushions, and get this, feminine hygiene pads! Now this bloody thing needs to be restored...

Yeah.. its not ebay but that particular user ... but still
 
I realized that Whitelines catalog is worse then ever. You cannot pull up the front castor kit by make and model anymore. You can do a search for the part number:

KCA302

I remember there being at one point several different kit for the amount of offset in these, but this is the only number I had information on.

So I'm installing the above kit and notice that the larger bushings are offset. I'm trying to figure out which is the correct way to install them. The instructions from whiteline are pretty shitty. Also wondering why there aren't any washers for the inside of that large bushing where it fits against the control arm itself.

The offset goes to the outside. The thicker part of the bushing goes to the inside. The kit should come with the washers as that allows you to change the castor. You can only fit two in front of the bushing if you have a lower cross brace.

Just to clarify the washers go between the control arm front shaft mount and the backside of the bushings. I'm talking about the rod that has two bolts that secures to the frame horn. The washers slide on first before the control with bushing. This will pull the control arm forward. As above I could only fit two washer on each side. The order goes: rod, two washers, bushing inside control arm, turbine tech four point lower brace (it's about 1/8" thick), and then lock washer, and then the nut. If you don't have a brace you might be able to fit four washers.

Excellent! Thanks bud..just the info I was looking for. And yes, good of you to remember that I have the TT underbody brace. Only yesterday I told myself that I need to remember to install it this time around. Hahaha

Will keep updating my build thread as I go along.
 
Superpro bushings SPF0678K front lower control front position are in stock at Suspension.com but the crush tubes that came with the Superpro sealed bags were the wrong interior size. I had to mill them out to make them work. Suspension.com had the 1" cast front control arm rear position bushings in stock SPF1433K, but now I see they are a 8to12 week wait. Now there is no reason to order Superpro bushings through Suspension.com since you have to have both. Also I don't recommend buying Superpro kit since the front came with the wrong crush tube and the rears didn't come with the washer set. The only reason you might want to buy the Superpro now is if you want a 1 degree caster adjustment instead of a 1.5 like the Whiteline.
