Not unlike pharma companies do.

Haha I can see why, Polyoxymethylene sounds like something sold in little baggies in dark alleys.

I stand corrected. Thank you for clarifying. Edited original response for future ref.

Had a chance to look at it more today, the pass side sway bar link (mevotech) doesn't rotate so I removed the nut and put some brake grease behind the nut and torqued it a bit less than last time. Also the front pass camber bolt washer looks like it might be moving up/down some. There appears to be a slide mark or something right below the washer, the torque is ok on the nut but there's definitely some grease behind that washer. Probably from when I greased the lca bolts so they wouldn't sieze on me.

Dumb question... I am trying to replace all 4 pads/rotors.

On RockAuto, do I need to order quantity 2 of brake pads for front & rear (4 total) or does quantity 1 include 2 sets of pads?

One set should be for the front, or the rear.

What are the downsides of too much caster?

I'm pretty sure that I do at the moment but before lowering the angle I wanted to see what our group of Xterra scholars thought on the subject. When I setup my SPC's last year I set the caster adjuster to slot B or +2.75 degrees of caster. They note in the install sheet that slot D or +1 degrees of caster will return most truck to stock.

My main complaints are:

1. Overly strong pull to center. At 70+ mph on long sweeping freeway turns the truck doesn't want to turn, it's a fight to keep the truck in lane while also completing the turn. If you let go of the wheel it sharply snaps back to center immediately, the truck will actually sway back and forth a few times from the force.

2. At slow speed if I make a turn, for example a left turn at 10 mph and hit the gas I can feel at least one of the front tires seem to lock/lose grip and the truck wants to drive straight and just drag the front tires without much turning happening. Basically really bad understeer.

3. High speed front end pulsing, seems like an alignment problem vs rotors but I'm wondering if it's mainly caster again, both wheels fighting to pull the truck depending on which way the road is leaning.

What do you guys think?

Thoughts on running a RTT with the Dep Hep Drop-in Rack? Anyone think it may be better long term to save up for a gobi rack? Curious to hear anyone's experiences.

Basically an unnecessary use of the DH rack because it's just added weight underneath the tent that you can't use anymore. That being said, I will likely do the same thing until I get a front runner rack or I can convince Rocky Mtn Racks to use me as a guinea pig for their racks.
