Got some new bushings installed by Solo Performance Specialties! These are the SuperPro DURO3741K bushings that go in the front control arm. These bushings are offset in order to allow for a caster increase.
I got about 0.2-0.3 degrees of added caster with these bushings, but more importantly, they moved the wheel forward again. The caster plates I got that added ~1+ degree of caster also pulled the wheels back enough to cause rubbing against the backside of the fender upon lock. These bushings moved the wheel forward enough that there is no longer any contact with the fenders! The steering also feels great, and there is no added NVH, etc. These install at the stock location and contain the correct amount of poly to metal, so are STU legal.
