Re: Front Wheel - Castor/Camber???
What you're looking is camber positive if it's out at the top.
Caster can't be seen, but think of it in relationship to a caster on the front of a grocery cart. A line through the steering axis is tilted forward at the bottom, so that it meets the road ahead of the center of the tire. That's positive caster.
Your eyes will play tricks looking at that stuff. Better to go to an alignment shop to find out what you really have.
Otherwise you should: First make sure that the wheels are true - jack them off the ground and spin them. Next make sure that the Jeep is on a level surface - not easy to find. Then make sure the wheels are straight ahead. Now you can put a level on the tire, vertical sidewall to sidewall, and get a rough idea of the camber.
