    Its adjustable and it looks like all you do is change the springs and bushings

    Yes, they are compatable with Dixies going back to at least 2001 and probably much further. Dixie Chopper has been using the same front caster setup for a long time and probably won't change it anytime soon.

    By the looks of it, they can't cost very much, that is for sure.
