Afternoon All,

I just had a wheel alignment carried out on my GT-Four as found out that I have 30' castor on the RH side, and -15' castor on the left.
The split of castor, and more importantly the negative castor, is making driving a bit erratic.

As anyone come across castor adjustment kits for the ST160 thru ST185?

K-Mac = US$480.00 (+postage) - Replacement strut top mounts

 

Suspension Concepts = AU$418.00 (+postage) - Replacement strut top mounts

 

Whiteline/Nolethane = No option available

 

Pedders = No option available

 

Superpro = No option available

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Had my eye on these for a while look like good quality just drill and tap some holes to position it where it has to be to put the castor back into spec. Have you checked to see if something is bent? that is out a fair bit.

Thanks,

 

I might just put it up on a hoist and check that there are no bend control arms etc.  All bushing and links are brand new, so it would have to be something metal like.

Ended up going with solid top mounts from Suspension Concepts.
