These Front Caster Arm Assemblies from SuperPro provide a performance suspension option for your G8 by replacing the soft original fluid filled bushings and OE ball joints. When the original bushings or ball joints wear out your G8 can exhibit steering wander and sluggish cornering, but with these arms you can enjoy straight line tracking at high speeds and increased maneuverability when turning.
The Caster Angle of your G8
The OE ball joints and bushings on the front caster arm of the 08-09 G8 provide a nice soft ride, but are lacking when it comes to performance. The rubber bushings are actually filled with fluid to aid in absorption but this makes them much less durable and allows the caster angle of your front wheels to change. As they wear down you might notice some steering wander at high speeds or less responsive steering as the vertical pivot line of the front wheels tilts forward.
Upgrade your G8's Performance
If you want to upgrade the turning response and high-speed stability of your G8 then these front caster arm assemblies will give you a noticeable bump in performance. The polyurethane front caster arm bushings will hold the arms in place without changing shape like the original bushings, but are made at a specific hardness that will still afford a level of comfort while dramatically increasing performance.
This assembly also includes heavy duty ball joints that will out last the originals.
Custom Caster Angle, Lifetime Warranty
Besides just keeping a firmer connection between the frame and the front wheels these caster arms come with shims that can be added to increase caster, giving you the option to customize your G8's turning and straight line tracking.
SuperPro stands behind their products with a lifetime warranty that includes racing applications, so if you like to take your G8 to the track every weekend you can rest assured that these caster arm assemblies won't fail on you. Whether you like flying down I20 or carving the corners of a Erath county back road you won't be disappointed with the responsive handling these caster arms will provide.

Those control arms fits perfectly and where easy to install on my 2016 vw golf. They almost completely solved my big wheel-hop problem and improved handling. The only down side is that the added caster moved the wheel forwards a bit and now my tire is rubbing against the bumper when i hit a big bump (i have a 1 3/4 drop) I would have loved the same part without the added caster better but i still think Ive made a good choice. Editors Note: When modifying the ride height from OEM can cause multiple issues that could effect tire clearance, steering and handling issues. All this must be taken into consideration.
