Camber, Caster adjustment.

Since I put 2 1/2" longer shakles on my Sami I am concerned about the caster, camber angles of my front end. My factory manuals only say under adjustments to make sure there is no wear or damage to the front end before adjusting, but does not give even a clue as to how. It tells you how to adjust the toe in and toe out. I guess if I crawl under it tommorrow I can figure it out but if someone out there has the correct method please let me know.
Later ...Harry...

Re: Camber, Caster adjustment.

THE FRONT END HAS NO ADJUSTMENTS THE ONLY THING YOU CAN DO IS TOE IN. YOU CAN FIX THE CASTER WITH SOME TAPER SHIMS[I WOULD NOT DO THIS] OR ROTATE THE SPRING PERCHES. I NO, A LOT OF CUTTING AND WELDING.THE CAMBER CAN BE CHANGED BY BENDING THE AXLE TUBES,OR SOME MORE CUTTING AND WELDING.YOU MAY JUST WANT TO BUY SOME SPRINGS[THAT WILL PUT IT BACK TO STOCK WITH THE FACTORY SHACKLES] I HADE THREE IN. OVER SHACKLES,GREAT OFF ROAD SCARY AS HELL DOWN THE HIGHWAY MY WIFE REFUSED TO DRIVE IT. GOOD LUCK MIKE
