    Went in for an alignment today. The shop only set caster to 1.7 Left and 1.9 Right. Camber and Toe is spot on. They did not touch the adjustable bolt on uca and I am now going back on Monday so they can up the caster.

    My question is, can they just adjust the caster setting on the UCA without causing changes to the camber and toe?

    Here's the after. The truck and steering feels light. I want more caster, about + or - 3 degrees. Everything else is fine.

    Take it to a shop that specializes in lifted vehicles. Wish you were local, I would ensure it’s all green for ya.

    What uppers do you have?

    This shop has done good work for me in the past. I tell them what i want and they do it. There was a misunderstanding this time though.

    Any thoughts as to my question.

    if the guy has a good machine, give him the numbers you want and he will make it work. That's what I did last time.
