Set Toe and Camber to 0* first, then tell them you want the most caster they can get without affecting the Toe and Camber.

Chris one more ? I took the truck for a little test spin after I finished the lift install, and I took it up to 50+ mph and I have zero vibrations at any speed, I put the axel shim kit in but left out the diff. drop kit as I could not get the diff bolts to turn even with the impact I rented, should I get it put in or leave it for now?? what would be best. thank you

No. The Diff drop only lowers the front diff 1/2" at the axels, and given the length of the axel, thats only about 2*. If that. Not enough to worry about.

Toe: 0.044* +/- 0.108*
Camber: 0.47* +/- 0.75*
Caster: 1.93* +/- 0.75*
