I replied to your questions on Facebook. The first message you sent went to the "other" folder and the others were answered within a couple of hours.

Maybe they pay the best.
I really like six5 design, but he doesn't use caster brackets. I wanted to ask him about it.
But I'm to broke right now.

My friend Cody@Fourtech used Six5 Design on his TRX and spoke very highly of them.

I don't think you'll be disappointed or regret your decision purchasing Houser a-arms.

I have no complaints besides wanting to go narrower and try something different.

I'm curious if there is any handling differences? Why do XC guys run Lonestar so much and why do MX guys run Walsh so much?
I always noticed XC guys running Houser and MX guys running a mix between LSR, JB, and Walsh.

I still think Walsh is the way to go if i was buying new. I like that they use a cup style ball joint on both upper & lower a-arms, And I've heard that they use better hardware (bearings, heims)
The LTR hub conversion greatly reduce bump steer which makes your combo one of the ultimate setups for the TRX in my opinion.

The front end handles way better with the walsh setup. Not sure if lonestar would be better for xc but for mx definitely go walsh. I still think the walsh xc arms have to be better. I even noticed a huge difference in how my rear end handles now with the walsh rear linkage. They definitely make the best products for our bikes.
The caster brackets drastically improves handling for narrow setups, and aids handling on mx setups. How do you like the Stage 5 shocks?
