Finally got tired of my low caster. Hopefully these will improve upon my 1.4 caster.
Question for anyone with these. When I install these and set the caster on the arms to 2* will it push my tire into the rear fender? Anyone experiencing any squeaking with the new specride bushings. Thanks

Yes it will... the point of LR is so you can add 1 deg caster and move wheel less rearward.

After I installed mine it was night and day with how stable my steering was. It was a little squirly on the highway with my stock UCA's. The light racing arms have a lot of adjustability, just hopefully you find a competent tech who does your allignment. The tech at the shop could not understand that my aftermarket UCA's had extra adjustment.

I'm in the middle of installing mine on my 1st gen. Have a question. I am going to set them at the "zero" setting (+2 degrees caster), but I am not sure where to set the camber setting. Havent seen anybody talk about this so I'm wondering if it's a relatively new addition to the LR uca's. Should I just eye ball it to get me to the alignment shop? Explaining to those tards is going to be fun...

Most guys just pull the ball joint all the way out. Buddy and I put a level on mine. Wasn't much difference to be honest (was moved in maybe 1/8" inch?). I got a 2nd gen though. Not sure if there is a difference.

Hmmm, yeah they must be different because I can pull/push mine in/out about 1" plus or minus. Guess I'll just pull it all the way out and try to talk with the alignment tech. Thanks for chiming in.

Sorry, I wasn't clear. Mine has the same amount of adjustment. I just meant that I only pushed the ball joint in about an 1/8" from all the way out to get the wheel vertically level.
