huh, that's odd. the part numbers match and everything. they probbaly mean the same thing. i'd bet that somewhere in your instructions it probably says that there are 2* of caster built into the arms, whereas in OZ's, it probably doesn't. just a gues

if i've read correctly they have +2* built in, meaning relative to stock, you can go from 0* to 4*. but that's without a lift.

i think you both probably have correct instructions, but they were rewritten (reworded and a new diagram), maybe to do away with this very confusion we're having right now

is the ball joint position set at -2, or is the alignment number on your printout -2? because with two degrees of caster built in, those are two different things.
