Whiteline's added to its range of Anti Lift Kits with a new offering for the 2005+ Ford Focus models including the RS MKII and Mazdaspeed3/ Mazda MPS Generation 1 models. Part Number KCA428 is designed to replace the front control arm rear mounted bushing with a lightweight aluminium housing matched with high performance/ low compliance chassis control bushings.
KCA428 provides added static caster to both front wheels by 0.5 de (RS Focus) or 1 deg(Non RS Focus), while changing the nature of front anti dive.
The low compliance bushing eliminates the soft non-responsive feel felt from the OEM fluid filled bushing and maintains more positive caster control during hard braking and cornering.
By changing the front control arm geometry, the new high tensite alloy mounts, coupled with the new low compliance bushings, change front suspension attitude to improve driver feel, feedback and confidence.
The additional positive caster coupled with the new elastomer bushings supplied, serve to dramatically sharpen initial turn-in response, forcing more conistent alignment angles through the corner due to the reduced bushing compliance.
