5100 install....oops

Just got my truck back from the alignment shop, and they were able to align everything, with a caster of 2.0, and 1.8, are these going to be high enough? Also, when I looked at the coil springs, i noticed that the end of the coil spring on the bottom is facing the front, I think it was suppossed to face the rear of the truck, Do I need to take them off and adjust this, or does it not matter?

Caster should be high enough.

If it isn't the truck will wander at highway speeds.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Here is a pic of the coil with the 5100 installed. Notice how the end of the coil is facing towards the front. Is this bad?

JK, let it ride. As long as it's seated correctly, which it looks to be, your good!

Nah your fine... As stated as long as the coil is seated correctly you'll be fine.. I believe mine are facing in towards the front/center of my truck.

It really doesnt matter which way the end of the coil is pointing, as long as they are seated correctly on the coil seat your fine.
