    Look good to me. Do you have UCA?

    Probably since they have so much caster with the stock UCA. If your tire don't rub when you turn wheels I would say your good. Should drive good with that caster. I'm surprised they got that much with stock UCA.

    I was always under the impression:

    Caster: 2.5 - 3 degrees
    Camber: 0 degrees
    Toe: 0 degrees

    That's why I posted to see what the specs were and get feedback on my results..
    I think those exact specs are in a perfect world.. It looks like I am within the range.

    Yeah the caster on your wheels are 3.7-3.8, if it's fine for you I would leave it alone.

    UCAs when lifting are so worth it IMO so you don't have to be marginal on any of your alignment specs.......
