well this is a big help with the djm drop..... good to know i will stick with the Xii Preformance
there has only been one issue in all the sets sold its been addressed and out of thosands of kits one failure??? Ive had belltech spindles fail and also seen leaf springs fail yet I still trust them and use it because it was fixed
Don't know what else you guys would like to see?
I bought my kit from tony maybe 6 months ago. So i assume i have the updated version i hope. Anybody got pics of the reinforced lca??
Sooo after about 4 months my unreplaced passenger side I shared concern with about failing in the future has failed in the same manner as the previous one same spot same situation....I am extremely pissed and aggravated because I no longer have a place to work on my truck and all repairs are coming out of pocket...I am looking at about 500 bucks to put my oem ones back on plus I will be replacing ball joints and shocks while I am at it all together I'm looking at 900 bucks because of a sub par design...that has been improved....but with only replacing one side it was a matter of time...**** my life please someone come and burn my truck down so I can just start over
When your other side broke with old design did you ask to replace both fronts??
Yes I did and read back into the post and you will see the remark I got from an individual on the phone...I was worried this might happen again and now I am screwed
to be sure the new version that they sent has no issue??
If your set on going back to stock id call up jeff at djm suspension and tell him the situation. At least you can get the new arm version and sell the kit complete to offset the cost or just slap in the new a arm. Whats good now is that they come with the balljoints installed so its a very easy swap.
Sorry to hear your problem ive had yet had any of the ones ive sold or installed go bad on me but if it did id get new arms for both sides which now you can talk to them about since you wanted that in the first place.
Ok I understand that and that was my plan to call mark but the point stands at if they replaced both when I had the concern everything would be fine but now I am out the money I really don't have to begin with
This is not good. I hate the idea of suing people as I think there's way too much of that going around these days, but this is one case where I'd consider getting a lawyer. You obviously could've been killed if you had lost control of your vehicle. Apparently DJM is waiting until someone does die and the family sues DJM for so much money that they are forced to go out of business? A wiser move for DJM would be to pay for your loss and move on.
I'm not one of those people...I am just happy that djm is replacing it and I want to make people aware that are running the old design..I am the only one who has had these issues of complete failure...and one other that had problems with the control arm bending..as much as I like being low the truck is is the furthest back seat of my life now with the amount of issues I've had over the years....those who have been around know of all of my horror stories..but I'm going to bring it back to stock height and sell my kit with 2 new lower control arms and be done with it. I got my bike now and that's got my bug now and the truck is....well....just a truck now
Got my front arms, as a fabricator i have to say the fit and finish on these is very low if not void. Flaking powder coat, and blotch wleds. I had to get them stripped and repowdered and then had to grind off fresh powder to ensure that the new replacement balljoints seated properly.
I had no issues all was straight forward. Sorry to hear your problems. I know that DJM will address any issues.

My issues arose due to the reinforcement at the lower balljoint location, becuase of the excessive puddle at this weld the balljoints were unable to seat so i had to grind them down to ensure replacements fitted properly.
I had this same issue with mines. but it was only on the driver lower arm.:thumbdown:
email email@example.com with pictures and your concerns.
Ball joints are already in so i cant get pictures of where i grinded. This reinforcement also makes it extremely difficult to remove balljoints properly on a press in that cups will not sit on arms perpendicular to allow for removal of lower balljoints. Should i just forward these concerns to that email? Ive already spent 125 in stripping and repowdering them and have now voided my warranty. So im not looking for replacements. Just want to give info out for others looking to do what i did to be prepared by QC'ing the product before final coat.
Yeah mine was lower amrs passenger and drivers side....
This crack would have shown up if the wields were properly inspected and magnifluxed.
Im trying to not complain about these arms, more or less im trying to keep everyone informed of what to look out for and/or be prepared for. QC is going to be low on these products only becuase they produce them for so cheap.
There is a lot to be said for quality quality control.
Indeed but it takes money to have it
