Shopper Award

Dobinsons Spring & Suspension 5 Degree Caster Plate kit for the Nissan GQ and GU Patrol from 1987 onwards, used when vehicle lift height is 3" to 6". With that amount of lift, caster bushings cannot provide enough caster to properly align the front end of the vehicle.

Caster angle plays a major part in vehicle straight line stability and helps the steering to return to center. If the vehicle's suspension has been raised, the required positive caster angle is reduced and the caster angle moves closer to zero, impairing the vehicles steering stability. A wheel alignment done by a reputable 4x4 wheel alignment center can determine whether caster correction is required.

Dobinsons Spring & Suspension offer a full variety of suspension components for this vehicle, including replacement bushings for all control arms front and rear. Contact Dobinsons for more information.

NOTE: Grinding is required to create proper clearance for the caster plate. Detailed instructions are supplied.

For suspension lift kits between 75mm/3" and 150mm/6" caster correction is required, and also adjustable panhard rods are highly recommended. For customers wanting to maximize the off-road performance extended sway bar links and extended brake lines are also recommended. Extending the vehicles bump stops and driveshaft modification may also be required depending on the application.

For suspension lift kits exceeding 90mm/3.5" considerable alignment parts are required. Adjustable panhard rods, sway bar extensions, extended bump stops, extended brake lines, gearbox spacing, driveshaft modification, adjustable/modified rear trailing arms and adjustable steering arm modifications are required along with other driveline, suspension and steering modifications which may also be required.

Note: For Off Road Use Only

Features:

  • For 3" to 6" lift heights, realigns front caster, adding 5 degrees
  • Zinc plated steel with all hardware supplied, super heavy duty
  • Simple bolt-on design with some grinding required
  • Not necessary to remove OE bushes, saving time and money
