    They're idiots. Take it to a good shop with a good tech. I told my shop specifically to crank in as much caster as possible and they got in the neighborhood of 2.0 with stock UCAs. Much better tracking.

    I've heard as much as 2.4, but with stock UCAs, be happy to get close to 2.

    EDIT: I've attached the spec that applies to both 4x4 and Prerunner.

    Print this and bring it in so they dont' fuck with you, and tell them aim for at least 2. They may do a little less on the deriver side to account for road camber (generally road surfaces slope to the right for drainage, and slightly more caster on the passenger side helps stop the truck from wandering right).
