SuperPro has developed and is continually expanding its range of Caster Correction Bushes. Field reports and tests determined that caster correction was needed on many front wheel drive cars. To correct the “pull to one side” steering problem, the following options were developed:

 

Option One:

To improve control, use the original manufacture settings.

Option Two:

To counteract a slight pull to the passenger side, we provide an increase of caster to the passenger side and standard setting of caster on the drivers side.

Option Three:

To counteract a strong pull to the passengers side, we provide an increase of caster to the passenger side and a decrease of caster to the drivers side.

Option Four:

To enhance performance, we provide both sides with increased positive caster.

  • THESE OPTIONS ARE BASED ON BOTH LEFT HAND DRIVE & RIGHT HAND DRIVE VEHICLES. AN EXAMPLE CAN BE SEEN BELOW.



Example:

 

MITSUBISHI LANCER CC & CE & FTO SPORTS COUPE PROTON SATRIA, PERSONA M21 SPORTS COUPE

When fitted to the rear position of the front lower control arm, this series of bushes change the caster angle of the front suspension appox +/- .8deg by moving the fulcrum point of the control arm either in or out thus moving the lower ball joint position either forward or rearward.

There are 4 kits to choose from for both LHD & RHD vehicles, all giving a different result.
