I need to correct some caster in my truck and I was told once which alignment cam does what, like the front is caster and the rear does camber. Can anyone tell me again which cam adjusts what? Im at 5* on the drivers side and 6* on the passenger side, and it pulls to the drivers side slightly, I want to bring the passenger side a little negative like 1/2* so I would be sitting at 5* and 5.5*.

Castor is the amount of * set in your spindle which helps bring your wheel back straight. Anywhere from 4 to 6* is acceptable. To decrease the castor you have to push the spindle forward which you can do by either pulling where the arm is attached to the front mount in which pulls your spindle forward, decreasing your castor or you can push the rear mount out which has the same effect.

According to the service manual, for caster, it's 1 gradation turn in on the rear bolt and 1 out on the front for negative, and no camber change. Or 1 gradation out turn on the rear, and 1 in on the front for more positive caster, and no camber change.

For camber both the front and rear bolt are turned in for more positive, or both out for more negative camber, and the caster is unchanged.

For toe, search for camel.

Thats what I was looking for, I know about alignments or I wouldnt be doing my own, I just couldnt remember the process to take some caster out, like said above and leave the camber alone.
