I just had my GU wagon lifted 2" and I don't feel that it needs correction bushes. It didn't take long to used to the different feel of the steering but I didn't have any of the wandering or tracking. Not sure if tyre size makes much difference? mine are 265/75R16
$370 was about what I was quoted to fit the bushes (not everyone has access to a press) - with a 2" lift kit around $900 it does indeed add considerably to the cost.
See how it drives first, no price difference to get them fitted later.
Once you do the lift, look at the front coils and the angle of the front drive shaft. If the coils are bent like a bannana or the front drive shaft angle is too steep, you will need castors.
Being 2", you may not need tem.
Personal preference rather than necessity I suspect. I have 2 degree bushes for my 2" lift. The front ends of Patrols have less than ideal road manners at the best of times so I wanted to ensure it wasn't any worse. I'm happy with the way it is. Cheers Mike
thanks for the reply everyone, have been told yes, other 4x4 agents say no, the most honest reply was just try it then see how it goes, coz it depends on the car itself not the fact that its a patrol or a toyota landcorola,. only 2inch, any higher than defanitly, apparently. one way to find out i guess, cheers people.
easiest way to tell mate is if you get sea sick driving down the road. ie it feels like a boat bobing around on water then you need them. I raised mine 2" and to be honest it drives better now than it did before without the bushes.
If you do get the bushers get the rubber one's they give a softer ride and more flex. Pedders and Superior sell them. Mine was ok with a 2-1/2'' lift but load the back end up and drop a inch it was just too light in steering and would grub the tram groves on the road. So I put the rubber type in. But each to there own.
