GoWesty Upper Control Arm Bushing (Full Set)
These will be the last upper control arm (UCA) bushings you ever purchase. Crafted from Delrin AF (ultra-strong Delrin combined with ultra-slippery PTFE), these bushings never need to be lubricated when all parts fit as they should. Please read our article on this topic for a full explanation. The sleeves are made from corrosion-proof stainless steel. We've put a single set of these bushings through multiple NORRA 1000 races, and every year that set stays on the van looking practically new!
This GW design also eliminates the need to add a spot weld when installing in a 2WD, now that's some forward thinking! We strongly recommend these over the aftermarket Meyle-brand upper control arm bushings, which we also carry. Do it right the first time, and never think about it again! And trust us: When that squeak is gone for good, you'll be a truly happy camper.

Some Vanagons vary; shock towers can be wider/narrower than others. This bushing kit is designed to fit perfectly on the majority of Vanagons out there, but there may be rare instances where stretching the arms on a 2WD may be necessary for exact fitment (details in instructions).
Important install note: This kit is designed to work with 4 mm thick eccentric washers. All 2wd Vanagons have 4 mm eccentric washers, but Syncros could have 4 mm, 5 mm, or 5.5 mm thick eccentric washers. If you have 5 or 5.5 mm thick eccentric washers, you'll need to buy 4 mm thick eccentric washers.
