Personally I would really try hard for 7-9 degrees and they should be the same on both side, It's camber that usually has a stagger side to side for road crown.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Both Radius Rods are in and the caster is set at 8 with plenty of thread for adjustment. I also welded in the spider web gussets under the cab mounts. You can see them from the front of the ride thru the headers which I have to buy yet or build.

Speaking of headers....All I can find are headers from Hot Heads which look kinda bland and sanderson twisters which have a cool look but not sure I like that radical angle.

That may be overthinking things
I really doubt that new cars have different caster on one side than the other, the only instance I can think of is race cars only going left.....

Yah...sounds weird...I thought I read it on the HAMB but can't find it now. Dozer felt it had to do with camber, not caster. I set both sides the same.

How's AZ?

You can always order flanges and make your own custom headers.

We've discussed that here a couple times and I know I could design something that looks cool. I have tig ability on my machine and have the tig kit but have not used it or tigged before. My son is an excellent tig welder but always busy on his own projects. Maybe after I'm done with my floor and tunnel I will give it a whirl. I have a bit of a mental block on it that I have to get past.

I don't know how you'd get different caster on either end of an I-beam axle. It would have to twist. Your fab work looks A-1.
