Whiteline Anti Lift Anti Dive Caster Kit Focus ST 225 XR5 RS mk2
Control Arm Inner Rear Bushing KCA428
Whiteline’s added to its range of Anti Lift Kits with a new offering for the
2005+ Ford Focus models including the RS MKII and Mazdaspeed3/ Mazda
MPS Generation 1 models. Part # KCA428 is designed to replace the front
control arm rear mounted bushing (refer schematic below) with a light
weight aluminium housing matched with high performance/ low
compliance chassis control bushings.
KCA428 provides added static caster to both front wheels by 0.5 deg (RS
Focus) or 1 deg (Non RS Focus), while changing the nature of front anti
The low compliance bushing eliminates the soft non-responsive feel felt from
the OEM fluid filled bushing and maintains more positive caster control during
hard braking and cornering.
By changing the front control arm geometry, the new high tensile alloy mounts,
coupled with the new low compliance bushings, change front suspension
attitude to improve driver feel, feedback and confidence.
The additional positive caster coupled with the new elastomer bushings
supplied, serve to dramatically sharpen initial turn-in response, forcing more
consistent alignment angles through the corner due to the reduced bushing
What’s this Anti Stuff all about?
“Anti" features in suspension systems are a characteristic that can be used to
influence the stiffness of the front or rear suspension under traction forces(under
braking or accelerating). The individual terms are relatively straightforward and self-
explanatory with the “anti” reducing or totally restricting the characteristic (lifting or diving). In the front suspension there may be levels of
anti-dive during braking and anti-lift during accelerating (assuming traction to the front wheels is present). This unique kit utilises a two piece
bushing for compliance and ease of installation. It is greased after installation to ease fitment and promote longer life. Fitting instructions link : http://www.whiteline.com.au/docs/install_guides/Z5204_Z5509.pdf
