you didn't say what you are going to use the casters for, but what comes to mind as far as height ajustable is a set of scaffolding casters with the coarse thread legs-usually found with 6 or 8" wheels. can find a set used if you look around.

If you don't like huge catalogs I'm sure you will hate these people...

I would also be interested in the same thing. I plan to use shims to level my cart, but if an adjustable caster is available, that would be better.

Add a couple nuts and these could be used for leveling

was actually looking for my local caster vendor (Casters of Lubbock) and that was the only hit I came up with... there's a clickable map with a distributors in your state link somewhere in all that mess...
