Default Any interest in DJM control arms?

Wanted to find out any interest in my DJM lowering control arms. I am ordering all new ones with bushings and ball joints to raise my truck back up to get more use out of it. They were installed just before I bought the truck back the end of August, if the springs are still good, guess they will be for sale also. I should have the parts in hand, both sides upper and lower with ball joints and bushings, within 2 or 3 weeks tops. I will post pics once I have them. Let me know if you are interested, I am thinking they would be a little expensive to ship...

Well right now I am pretty much taking offers. Not sure what they are worth. I know if you buy them they are around $250 a pair and I think the whole lowering kit is around $700.

I will let you know and post some pics. I know my new control arms are coming in today and the shocks should be here next week. Then it is just a matter of taking it to my boy to have it done.

Those look pretty rough for less than 6 months use, mine look better after several years.

Whats rough about them? I did not even have a chance to clean them up. The brackets for the rear are, but everything is fine. Thats why there are multiple grease points. If you dont have anything nice to say then dont say it.

Just saying they don't look "put on just before i bought the truck". Not doubting you, but maybe the person you bought it from.

Jeeze, don't flip when someone points out that they don't look as new as advertised. The powder coating should not be pealing so soon. Wouldn't want someone here to not get what they pay for.

I bought the truck from my fiances brother who bought it new in 2002. He bought the kit about 3 years ago and that is when the springs and flip kit were put on. He kept the control arms in storage and finally put them on in August before I bought the truck and was mad because I wanted to raise it back up for work. So to be clear, the parts are about 3 years old the control arms were only on the truck since last Aug. Remember I am in the north east, 2 blocks off the bay and 15 min from the ocean, things here dont last as long in the south when it come to the powder coating, lol

That explains it, the arms look ok, but the springs and flip brackets are what look old, so that clears it up, they are. Thanks for the transparency.

Wow, one thing I can tell you is that shipping is not cheap.
