Anyone have experience with Whiteline Anti-Lift / Caster Kit ?

Hi all, I'm looking to buy the Whiteline Anti-Lift / Caster Kit and I would like to know if you have any experience with this product, do you like it, is it a good purchase ?


I have seen a few review but it was about GTI and I don't know if it performs as good on a 2.5.


I have also read that is dramatically reduce front wheel spin & understeer, is it true ?

Thanks for reading and have a nice day,
Kind regards.

I'd get the superpro or the powerflex version. The bushings for the white line kit have been known to wear prematurely.

+1 for powerflex. I have the purple series on my car and it helped the turn in feel and reducing understeer considerably.

Superpro all the way. Read my reviews on Whiteline ALK and the SuperPro control arm kit (can get the ALK part separately)

x3 on SuperPro. The control arms, ball joints, and bushings are all excellent.

Planning on their sway bar end links in the future because they seem to have a good handle on suspension parts.

Jay, do you have a link to the purple series that you use?

Finally I bought the Whiteline Anti Lift Kit, I got it at a very good price ^^ 82$ CAD Brand new with a warranty of 1 year. Normally, it's 330-350$CAD, when I saw the price I insta-buy it ^^

Right now my suspension set up is H&R 26mm front, 22mm rear (both on soft), DG springs, stock shocks and struts (getting koni str.t this week), Whiteline anti-lift kit and I am just loving it on the bends. When I take a turn fast enough to make the tires squeal, I can feel the back end kick out a little bit.

I'll be putting my rear sway bar on stiff and see if that increases the rear end kicking it out. I can see why understeer is so addicting!

Anyone have any input on Superpro vs. Powerflex ALK's? They seem like the same basic design (metal sleeve inside of the bushing, unlike Whiteline). Is there any justification for the Superpro kit being ~$40 more expensive?
