Mine are set at the neutral position, so +2* caster. My caster numbers were 2.5* and 2.7* after the install, when i brought it in for alignment they just adjusted the toe and camber and left the caster where it was, drives great. In hindsight i may have tried the +1* setting first. SPC recommends to max out the caster on the LCA then determine where the caster plate on the UCA should be set. The reason they say that is because adding caster at the UCA moves the wheel back in the wheel well, adding caster at the LCA moves it forward. I had to do the cab mount chop, i had pretty bad rubbing in the rear of the wheel well, with less caster at the UCA i may have been able to move the wheels forward in the wheel well. Don't go by what i am saying though, every truck is different, but if you can find an alignment tech that is willing to mess around with the UCA adjustments you might want to try a lower setting first, especially if you are going with 2.5" of lift or less. But ya between 2.5* and 3* is the short answer haha. Heres what SPC says

4. Q. After installing these control arms I now have camber and caster adjustment on both the upper and lower control arms. What is the proper way to adjust the alignment?
4. A. On many Toyotas, the factory lower cams have seized in the control arm, and cannot be used to adjust the alignment without a lot of work. If they have not seized, they can help to fine-tune the alignment.

If tire rub is not critical:
1. Set caster roughly by clocking the SPC upper ball joint per the chart on the instruction sheet.
2. Once caster is close to your desired setting using SPC’s upper arm, use the factory cams on the lower arms to dial it in. (Ignore any change in camber while setting caster.)
3. Now that caster is where you want it, use the sliding feature of the upper ball joint to put camber exactly where you want it.
5. Q. My tires are rubbing at the back of the wheel well, can I use the adjustable arms to help fix this?
5. A. Yes, you can! Use the lower arm adjustment cams to roll the lower ball joint forward for maximum caster. (Pull the forward bushing in and push the rearward bushing out.) Then adjust the upper ball joint to get the caster and camber alignment in spec. Doing this can move the wheel center forward by ½"- ¾" in most cases.
And that my friends is a thorough answer! Thank you once again Evan

Pics look great! Spent tire money on my fence project, almost mounted Bridgestone H/T 's on mine today, just seemed like an impatient sin, changed my mind. Matte black is looking good and Stealth.

Thanks! Tires are 265/70/17, no lift... little cutting here and there but nothing overwhelming.

The F-5 will be available with 3.50" BS, but not these. The Stealth 6 are $170 each plus shipping.

Less back space = further out from control arms, right?
