CASTER adjustment?

Does anyone know of a way to adjust Caster on a Bronco? Mine is a bit negative on the front driver's side and its causing me to lose an inch. Because the caster is negative, its causing the spring to buckle, or compress unevenly.PLEASE HELP

Re: CASTER adjustment?

Usually, most places that do alignments can adjust caster. I just had mine brought down to 2 degrees positive and that corrected a nasty wheel hop/shimmy that I was getting. If your Bronco has a suspension lift, call the company and ask for the specs that will work for your lift height.
Good luck.

Re: CASTER adjustment?

There is a caster/camber sleeve on the top ball joint. It will (might) slide out if you take off the castle nut and then pound on stuff. I wouldn't recommend trying this unless you are going to change your ball joints. I just replaced my ball joints and was looking at the thing. I don't know how it's suppose to work, maybe you put in a new one with a different angle. This doesn't seem very adjustable; I mean, you have to take everything apart just to get to it. Anyone know?
