    Thanks for the pics guys...fixin to do these this weekend & I woulda had them a notch too far towards the rear of the wheel well from the looks of the pics. I'm gonna do mine the same way as y'alls. I will concur that in all of the adjustment setting pics on the install sheet, the round edge always points in and the stud of the ball joint is what moves forward or backward to regain or lose more of the caster setting depending on which way they are rotated.

    Yep, Numbers look good. Caster is high but that is fine. Both Camber settings are a little positive but are both within spec.
