Did you do the caster yourself or have it done at an alignment shop?

And what was it before adjustment?

Stopped at gas station

LCA's were bought from a member with the same lift. Preset to a little more than 23" from bolt center to bolt center.

Sweet!

My lca's just came in and I'm so hoping to have the same reaction you had once I get them on and get my caster adjusted.

Took us 30min. to install.

Set them to 23". Mine were already set to little more than 23" so I left em be.

And here is a few more pics with the 1" rear spacers. First pic ( with ugly bird feeder) is before install ( -2" rear)

Hell of a lot better looking with the rear spacers

.......... these same LCA's work with my 2" spacer lift and would I use the 23" bolt center 2 center to get her close

Guess we would then get a front-end alighment to get the desired +5-deg

Well you could have your alignment checked for caster #'s

Generally LCA's and TB's are not necessarily needed at 2-2.5.

If you feel you need either, go for it.

I think the LCA's and caster adj. will help more than adj. TB's ?

23" is a bit longer than stock and the recommended starting point to achieve
5-6 degrees caster.

I just got my taxes back, and new wheels and 35 will be ordered any days. Then hopefully it warms up here and I can get the coils and spacers in. Our rides will look very similar soon.

Always a pleasure Ken. I secretly enjoy living vicariously through your modding budget, especially as I don't currently have one...

Now order those damn tires! I saw a JKU out and about today parked near me. 35" Open Countries. Those things look pretty aggressive. If you park your rig in front of your house with those beauties on it, you will definitely need to put that bird feeder away...
