My Alignment Numbers

Over the last 2 nights I installed my lift (1.75" in front and 1.5" in back), and today I took it to the stealership for an alignment. I should have known better but Kal Tire (a major Canadian chain) quoted $100 for an alignment and so did the dealership... but they didn't mention it's an extra $40 for 4WD vehicles until I got there .

All that aside, here are the final numbers:

Camber: Left 0.8 Right 0.4
Caster: Left 1.3 Right 1.4
Toe: Left 0.08 Right 0.06

My main question is should I be concerned about the low caster? I have stock UCAs so I know this is the cause, but I don't really want to buy new ones at this point. Also is the relatively high camber and the cross camber an issue?

Thanks for the help.

That's driveable. Left camber's a little high but still in range.

If you took it back they could probably reduce camber a little (but still in range) and give you a little more caster.

But caster is just a "feel" thing. If it's not too skittish for you, then by definition it's good enough.

Can't they get your toe to 0 or is that good enough? $140 is outrageous for 2 tires! There's no offroad shops within a decent distance?

Yeah I know the price is high but alignments (and everything else) are more expensive in Canada. I didn't shop around much though, next time I will be more picky.

Edit: They also gave me before and after numbers for the rear. Thrust angle apparently improved by 0.02 degrees. I don't know if that's an error or if they actually tweaked the U-bolts.
