Non OFFset FCABs and Camber/Caster Plates

I have some FCABs with Powerflex bushings installed.

Problem:
under heavy brakeing on an uneven road surface the car tends to dart to the uphill side of the rut quite vigorously.

My RTABS are monoballs (well I have two, one on each side

Not running stock wheels or tires 245 front 285 rear

I need to inspect my FCABs but they are only 7000km old....

I'm wondering about installing non offset monoball FCABs and using Camber/Caster plates to reset the Caster to address the stability issue under brakeing

surely someone has some advice that I would appreciate?

Thanks Anileb I had read your post at some point. Those are the front mono ball bushings I'm looking at also.

I'm still curious about using camber plates to return the caster to stock with centered FCABs.

Well, I am indeed using camber plates but don't know if they are mandatory for this install.

Some more info can be found HERE in case you have not already seen it.

If you get these just make sure to pre-grease them as they come dry. I don't use a grease gun but prefer to take the centre insert out and grease them fully by hand. This way you get the grease evenly all the way around and you will get zero noise.

They are a bit expensive but if you wait for a sale you can get them at a discount. I paid $249.95 but that was a couple of years ago now.
