Caster Question.

I am about to do a spring over on my CJ and have a question on the front axle. I am going to take a measurement of the caster as the Jeep sits now so I can mimic it when I weld the pearches on top. I would actually like to get my dana 44 to sit w/ 2* of caster and have a little better pinion angle. Where is the best place to measure caster? I was thinking that I could put my degree finder/angle measurment tool (its a round dial with a pointer that is pulled by gravity) on the steering arm of the knuckle. Would this give a correct measurement or should I take the measurment off the top of the inner knucle?

Re: Caster Question.

You need to take it through the ball joint holes of the inner knucle before you put the knuckle on.
