Checking Caster

While installing the C we constantly checked the caster with Summit’s Intercomp digital angle finder. We opted for 8.5 degrees of positive caster (leaning toward the rear of the Jeep) on the front axle. This allowed us to roll up the pinion slightly if need be and still have adequate caster. On the rear steering axle we set the caster at zero with a zero-degree pinion angle, as we will not be using rear steer at speed so caster is less important.
