We are really excited to introduce these GoWesty-designed upper control arm bushings for your 2WD and 4WD Vanagon! These will be the last upper control arm (UCA) bushings you'll ever purchase. Crafted from Delrin AF (ultra-strong Delrin combined with ultra-slippery PTFE), these bushings never need to be lubricated. The sleeves are made from corrosion-proof stainless steel.
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 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).
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 (see related item below).
