    Installed OME lift with Dakars and LR UCAs this pass weekend.
    Had alignment done today. Are the caster numbers too high
    for my tires? ( P265/70R17 )

    Was just wondering, read somewhere that if you run stock,
    numbers should be 2.1 to 2.4.
    Thanks

    IIRC, the OPs numbers are pretty much what you should shoot for. Can't find the specific thread(s) right now though.

    OP , what coils did you use , and what is your measurement hub to underside of fender up front ?

    Did you install your LR UCA's in the neutral ( SPC logo facing out ) setting ?

    885's with trim packer only. Front measures 22 1/2 L&R, Rear 24 1/4 L&R
    with full tank. Drivers side is in the neutral (D) position and passenger side
    is -1.0* (E) position. Also at this time I have no vibs, did not install the
    rear shims or CB drop, waiting for suspension to settle and see what happens.

    Interesting

    Why the different BJ settings , side to side ?

    FWIW , your hub to fender measurements are pretty much identical to what I got when I installed the same set up on my DCLB

    The technician told me that there was not enough adjustment left in the
    LCA to get caster even with drivers side. So he took 1* out with UCA and
    then dialed it up to match drivers side. Good thing they are adjustable.
    OZ-T do you think there is something wrong???

    Your alignment numbers are great , I was just curious to the reasoning for the two different settings , not saying there is an issue with it .

    You are lucky to find a tech that knows how to adjust the LR UCA's , it seems most have no clue .

    Truck looks great .
