These Spherical Bearings not only replace the worn problematic #2 Caster Arm bushing up front on early Gen 2 GS and we believe they are truly the proper part for the way the stock arms move. The bearing is a no-bind Teflon-lined precision bearing that will self-clean away road grime and hold up to task for drift and grip driving. Suggested for track and higher performance use only due to increased NVH and increased maintenance. Bearings may require periodic lube with a dry PTFE spray to keep low speed squeaking minimized. Installation requires high-temp bearing set compound similar to Loctite 620 to bond the bearing cup to the control arm.
