How do you know where your caster is?? And did you check wheel base before you put them on? How did you come up with this measurment? I am only saying this because I am sure these arms have more caster built into them and you cannot compare one side to another without having before measurments..Were the old arms like new??

I only did one side so far,but im sitten here lookin at it on the lift from across the shop (like ive been for the last 3 months) and it looks different.so i measured from the back tires and sure enough its 1/2" forward.no big deal if the other side comes out the same.just curious.

what if frame is twisted or rear is not centered? I would not worry till both sides are done. I just did the complete TRZ on Dads 69 camaro turned out GREAT. Just food for thought I have seen a few race cars where wheel base differs from side to side after years of abuse

The lower ball joint is moved forward a little bit, and the upper ball joint is moved rearward a little bit to gain the caster.
