Road Racing - Caster Bushing 93-02 f-body

How often do autoxers and road racers replace the rear bushing (caster) on the front lower control arms? Is there a more durable upgrade available that will work on the factory arms? TY,B.

You should go to frrax.com. Search there, there's some good options to upgrade the stock arm's bushings.

Global West Suspension Components Inc has a "Spherical Lower Control Arm Bearing Kit- part # SP-7"
Basically replaces both LCA bushings with spherical bearings. It does require welding. It might be possible to just install the caster one for a possible compromise between full rod end solid feel and mushy stock stuff if its a daily driver and ride quality is somewhat important. Better yet maybe a poly front and the spherical bearing rear.
The caster bushing seems to be the first to deteriorate and cause issues stock anyway as its a kind of weird design.

I just replaced both bushings in my control arms with Prothane bushings, It's not fun as you have to burn out the factory rubber bushings and press out a cup, unless your's falls out like one of mine did!
