63 C10 alignment question

Does anyone know what the caster setting is. By that I mean is it positive or negative lean caster? Does the spindle lean forward or back to create the caster rate? Also, what should it be set at?

Re: 63 C10 alignment question

Extra positive caster will help it track straighter, so get the alignment shop to add as much as possible, especially if you have power steering. The minimal caster from the factory was to help the truck steer easier without power steering. You might be able to get 4-5 degrees with factory parts.
