Radius Drop bracket?

Hey guys, I put a 2.5" leveling kit on my truck a while back and I think I messed with my caster quite a bit. I found some radius arm drop brackets on ebay that look like it might help correct that. Do yall think it would help to get them? Thanks in advance guys!

I can't get anyone around here to install alignment cams is why Im asking. I also found some drop brackets that are from pmf if that makes any difference in quality from the ebay ones.

You don't need radius drop mounts for such small of a lift. All you need is new cams to re set your caster. Radius drops are required when going above 2.5 like a 5+lift then you will also need a track bar bracket and swaybar end links and extended brake lines etc etc

Thats what I was thinking. I just can't find anyone around here to install them. I've asked 4 wheel parts down in Ft. Worth and they wanted a ridiculous amount of money to install BD's adjustable castor thing. I then tried the place that tey recommended and they couldn't do it. I call a few other shops and no one knows about it or can't do it. Do you or anyone else know of a shop in the Ft. Worth/Dallas area that will install them?

It takes 5 min a side to put cams in and no alignment needed with the correct cams

If it's a 2.5" leveling kit, buy a 1.5* caster correction shim (we get ours from specialty products) and toss them in. It's as easy as remove the upper ball joint nut, remove the factory sleeve off the ball joint and replace with the caster correct shim ensuring orientation remains constant while torquing. For the specialty products shims, this means make sure the gap faces directly rear.
