Cam / Caster Angle - Doesnt Look Right

99 Jeep 4 cyl with Rubicon Springs / Shocks. Stock 15 inch wheels & tires.

I've had some troubles with Death Wobble, but solved it with a re-balance and inner wheel scrape.

When I installed the rubi springs and shocks, had no idea about caster angle - so i just set it to the same angle i found it in with stock suspension.

Just wanted to check with the forum if this looks right. They appear to be at steep angles and opposite to eachother. Reason i ask is the Jeep gets nervous over bumps and tracks a bit. Just want to be informed before going to an alignment shop.

Thanks

The caster angle isn't especially fussy. But without having an alignment shop see what your actual caster angle is first, you can't know if it's ok or not. 6 to 7 degrees of caster angle for stock size tires is fine.
