I bought a set of new D/A calipers from nashbar a week back and the left, rear arm was bent so that the pad would not hit the rim flush. instead the pad would be a few degrees toed-in. the right rear arm and both of the front's were fine (exactly flush with the rim).

I had them send me another set and the exact same problem!!! is this the way they should be? or is nashbar trying to get me to accept reject calipers from shimano at full price?

then to top it off, the customer service guy (someone from the tech dept) said that i should bend the arm or wait for the pads to wear down... but shouldn't they be good from the beginning?
