    I've heard others with problems with the DJM lowers and how they're designed. You're not the first to experience wandering. Have you contacted Tony?

    I'm just curious: do your jounce stops make contact with the DJM LCA's?

    That's what I don't understand with the DJM's, since from all that I understand about the torsion bar suspension they're an important part of the design. Tony nor nobody else has explained why they aren't needed when you use the DJM's.

    I agree man,i even called djm and the guy was a total douche.He couldn't tell me at all.I wish my problem had a easy fix like a jounce cause let me tell ya,ive been disappointed with the control arms from the minute I drove it the first time.Its a handfull to keep between the lines.Gonna try some tie rods first(even though they don't have any play)..After that I guess I'm gonna get the upper DJM's ,sure is hard to spend another 275 on a product I've hated so far!

    Screw that just get belltech drop spindles and tweak your stock torsion bars and you will be happier.
