Post lift alignment specs.

Recently installed an OME lift, no UCA's. Got my truck back from alignment. It feels fine while driving. Just looking to get some opinions on these numbers because to be honest I don't know what to look for.

Toe: .05 left and right
Camber: .8 left, .5 right
CASTER: .4 left, .8 right.

Now I have read that ideal caster is 2.5? So from my understanding I am WAY off?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Camber should be closer to 0*, and Caster needs to be at least 1.8*

about 3". I used the 886 coils, which in retrospect was a bad choice. Even with the winch and bumper, the coils are too stiff.

What damage/issues can I expect from the misalignment?

The truck will wander at high speeds due to low caster.

Caster doesn't effect tire wear - just the way it drives.
