    My driver side lower control arm has started to crack...I'm not sure how bad it is, I'll try to get a pic.

    Lets not even talk about the flaking -_-

    Update to my situation

    I provided them with some receipts, and they are covering BOTH arms (even though passenger side is still okay) at no charge to me! I am very satisfied with them!

    djm will take care of you just 3rd party vendors drop it on the customers AND 3RD PARTY VENDORS are still selling the old design of the arms.

    All the arms ive sold have been the new design and if you have any issues you can call me 24/7. I offer the cheapest prices on the net/back up my sales with 24/7 support and am a supporting vendor of this website you guys dont need to go anywhere else to buy any djm product :)

    Nice set I gor used had reinforcement but that reinforcement is poorly thought out. Have to grind welds to ensure balljoints seat properly.

    well after all this reading i just opened my djm box yesterday and noticed that the uppers are flaking in 2 spots so iv decided to go to a powder coating place that *irunnit* recommended to me and for 200 bucks they will pc them red to match the bushings. as for the block and c notch idc the c notch will get under coating and the blocks can stay the way they are
