If you have to adjust go for the bushes.

Depends on how far up you have gone, mostly 2° / 3° bushes for 2" to 4", 4" and up you would want to use 5.5 ° plates.

Gday
Bushes are for small lifts, the plates are for 4 inch lifts minimum. Plates are a better option, as the bushes are stiffer than the std rubber in there now, so u loose articulation, and in extreme 4wding, can crack the welds on the front diff...., i have a pair of arms with 3 deg correction bushes in them already....u could try them and see...

Thanks for the reply's, its only been lifted a couple of inches its been awile since i had the wheel alignment done but i think it was only out 2 or 3 degrees, i dont do a lot of serious 4 wheel driving in it so i thought bushes might be okay.

2 deg or 3deg of castor will not make it all over the road. Your toe in will . go get that sorted first and then see if you want castor bushes
