    Forgive my ignorance, but these say "added caster". How much? Is this the only geometry change to these over stock?

    FWIW, should put the caster, when lifted to 3". at 2.1* or more! That will help with any wandering when lifted.

    Correct what we have been hearing is that after some of the Tacoma's are lifted above 2.5" to 3" the trucks are getting a wandering sensation (Front wheels on a shopping cart) on the freeway and these arms will help get the caster back down to the stock parameters and help take away if not eliminate the wonder.
    Hope this helps..

    Hi Everyone,

    Just wanted to give you guys an update on the availability. We blew threw the 10 sets of arms we had in stock, and have been getting some calls for these. You will still get the GB deal, $525 shipped, if you place your order online. We will ship them as soon as we get them boxed up, and YOUR CARD WILL NOT BE CHARGED UNTIL WE SHIP.

    We should have the arms back from powder coat Thursday, and boxed and ready to ship by Friday or early next week.

    Thank you for everyone who has been calling on this deal, and let us know if you have any questions...

    Thanks,
    Marco @ DSM

    So Please explain to me why, before I drop $500.00 on these....
    1)Why do I get yours over someone elses?
    2)Why are yours square tube when everyone else is round tube?
    3)Will these "Help" the alignment issues, or, fix the issues? I have a 2010 Pre-runner with Icons in front and Dakars in the rear. I am lifted to 2.5" in front now but I want to level it out. Will these be able to accomplish that?

    Thanks...

    hopefully someone who has bought these posts up tire clearance and alignment #'s they got with these.

    If those 2 things check out I'll pick up a set.

    1)Why do I get yours over someone elses?
    - Great price, quality components/construction and we think they look nicer than round tube.
    2)Why are yours square tube when everyone else is round tube?
    - We like the look of the boxed look much more. That's why we made them that way.
    3)Will these "Help" the alignment issues, or, fix the issues? I have a 2010 Pre-runner with Icons in front and Dakars in the rear. I am lifted to 2.5" in front now but I want to level it out. Will these be able to accomplish that?
    - They will fix the caster issue, as they have just under 3 degrees of built in caster.

    For more specifics, post #6 of this thread...Thanks!

    I bought them when DSM first came out with them and they are awesome!!! The install is fairly easy. There is some minor difficulty on the install but thats for any type of UCAs. If you lift a vehicle you wont get the caster back into specs but this will help bring it back towards stock. mine currently sits around 2.0-2.5 and i have OME 886 coils and shocks. so it does help with getting it back in. I would recommend these to anyone. The quality is impeccable and you wont find a single flaw. i strongly recommend them!!!
