2004-2006 GTOs suffer from poor brake pedal feel. The original radius rod bushing is a soft fluid filled bushing. This bushing absorbs most of the braking load as the car wants to keep moving and the wheel tries to stop. This results in excessive movement of the front suspension when braking. The original bushing has no caster adjustment. The Whiteline Radius Rod Bushings W82047 corrects these issues. This Polyureathane bushings allows you to adjust the caster. This upgrade will dramatically improve braking and handling of the car. This is the number upgrade for the car....This is must do!! Installation is simple. Easy to follow instructions are included with the kit. If you can change your oil....you can change these bushings!!!

Very happy with the kit. Service was excellent.

Quality hardware, quick shipping.
Didn't expect new ny-lock bolts, but they are in the kit ... so, bonus points.
Packaging could be a bit better, everything was in a large envelope, but the parts are very sturdy so no damage during shipping.
Clear instructions, relatively easy install.
Hardest part was getting old bolts off, and I had to raise and lower the car a few times before getting the passenger side bushing in place.
Would definitely recommend!

The bushings arrived quickly and were of excellent quality. The right side bushing was a little difficult to install but the left side went in easily. I noticed a big difference right away in the way my car drove. Very satisfied with my purchase.

My 06 GTO has less than 26,500 miles on it. I didn't expect these parts to make such a difference - amazing improvement over the original parts.

I just got these installed along with Lovells springs and KYB shocks and struts. What a difference! My 2006 GTO feels, drives and rides so much better now. Braking has been greatly improved. Great products. Thanks Andy!

The GTOs should have came with these at the factory, I used the +1/4 Caster setting and love the extra steering feel. In combination with my SS lines, front DBA slotted rotors, and Yellow stuff pads, under decently hard braking it's getting to "eye-popping" stopping distance. Great product!

Like everyone says this is a MUST DO. Installation was a breeze. Andy is great to deal with, he had the bushings to me overnight. Thanks again Andy!

Stopped my wheels from kicking back when I slam the brakes and the car comes to stop much quicker.

I had the good ol strut rub issue on my car and finally decided to buy the radius rod bushings. immediately felt the difference in brake pedal feel and better suspension response. For the price and quality of service that Kollarracing provided I will definitely be using and referring people to this site. Thanks again.
