Eville Rich Posted June 14, 2017 Share Posted June 14, 2017 I'm in the process of refreshing the front suspension bushings on my 2007 LGT. I'm talking with a shop to install the Whiteline control arm bushings and swaybar links. ~140,000 miles on the stock LCA bushings and my recent replacement of calipers/rotors/pads revealed them to be fairly torn. The swaybar links are starting to rattle a bit. Anyway, the shop is suggesting the Whiteline bump-steer kit in case the ball joints and tie-rods need replacing. My view is that I may as well replace this stuff "while they are in there." The shop hasn't actually seen the car at this point, so it's more of a contingency. I'm running OEM springs and KYB struts. No plans to lower the suspension. My concern with the Whiteline bump steer kit is that it's really setup for a lowered suspension. Some reading and words of caution suggest that the bump steer kit may have a negative effect on steering as its made to push the control arms down to compensate for lowering springs. But I don't know if this is true. Are the bump steer kits a reasonable alternative to OEM ball joints and tie-rods for an otherwise OEM ride height? Any issues with salty winters and corrosion? Any reason to NOT do the bump steer kit? Thanks much Eville Rich 2007 LGT Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
