Moog makes a upper strut bushing that has caster and camber adjustment for the mk4. I purchased them on rock auto and previous lift was 29 3/4 to fender and now is 31 3/4 so this was a win win Moog part number k90488

Wigs,
"previous lift"? I've got VR6 springs, shocks and a 10mm spacer, not sure if I want to go another 2" up. Having camber and caster adjustment would certainly be good however. You happy with the added adjustments?

I've given up worrying about caster on these cars. One of my alignment guys says it's very dependent on ride height and load in the car at the time of alignment, including how much fuel is in the car. So I just let it go. After years of owning VW's simpler platforms (strut front/axle & trailing arms rear) I've accepted that the alignment is going to be close, but not perfect. I just try to not have stuff in the red.
