Calling all alignment gurus, opinions on my alignment numbers

Got the truck aligned after setting billys at 1.75" and adding a 1.5" TSB AAL to the rear. I have stock UCAs right now, and this is the alignment spec sheet I was given after the alignment:

Front Left:
Camber: Actual = .8*, Before =.9*, Specified range = -.3 - 1.2*
Caster: Actual = 1.4*, Before =.4*, Specified range = 1.4* - 2.9*
Toe: Actual = .03*, Before = -.01*, Specified range = -.02* - .09*
SAI: Actual = 10.9*, Before = 10.8* Specified range = 11.2* - 12.7*
Included Angle: Actual = 11.8*, Before = 11.7*, Specified range = 11.0* - 14.0*

Front Right:
Camber: Actual = .8*, Before =.9*, Specified range = -.3 - 1.2*
Caster: Actual = 1.5*, Before =.4*, Specified range = 1.4* - 2.9*
Toe: Actual = .05*, Before = -.01*, Specified range = -.02* - .09*
SAI: Actual = 11.4*, Before = 11.3* Specified range = 11.2* - 12.7*
Included Angle: Actual = 12.2*, Before = 12.2*, Specified range = 11.0* - 14.0*

Most of these numbers seem to be in range, but the Caster and SAI on the front left are pushing it... I was told that I wouldn't have to worry about uneven tire wear though, but I'd like some additional input from
everyone here.

Thanks!

nope..it all looks pretty good. Even if the tires do wear out, i'd go back and be like you guys aligned my truck, and then the tires wore out..you owe me new ones.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Personally, I like to see the Camber closer to 0*.

Thanks for the input. Quit staring at each others wives too... I'll try to keep them rotated, I'm sure that will help.

I can see a set of TC UCAs getting put on eventually... Just not yet. They're $$$!
