A product called \"Caster Correctors\"

Could anyone comment on the product called "caster correctors" on this website? Somebody made this product for International scouts. Can someone who knows about Dana 44 and 30 axles check the site out and let me know if you think this product would be compatible with the Dana 30 axle?

Thanks in advance. Steve

Re: A product called \"Caster Correctors\"

Your local auto parts store carries these. I had my alignment checked after my lift and found that the caster differed from side to side by 1 1/2 degrees and the camber on one side was 1 1/4 degrees off. I installed one in each upper ball joint to correct one problem on each side. They work very well. I don't think they make anything bigger than about 1 1/2 degrees though.

$42 ? ...It looks alot like the offset insert that comes with the upper ball joint. I'd have to talk to someone, before I did anything.

Ok... I've resisted this for two days now... I can't hold back any longer!

Do these have a rating on them? Do we have to consult the "National Caster-Rating" Breau?

Sorry, I'll go away now and hang my head in shame... and try to muffle the laugh... at using such a low bowed pun.
