        Let me take a shot at this Allen, I'm planning to do mine soon
and this
        way the list can ixnay it if insufficiently thought through.
        My basic plan is to loosely assemble the front end and make some
        measurements of the floor and knuckles. The axle on jackstands
and at
        normal ride height in relation to the frame/body. Use an angle
        on the floor under the front of the EB and again on the top of
        knuckles. Adjust the angle of the knuckles, by rotating the
axle until
        the desired caster is achieved. Tack weld the C-bushing
brackets on the
        tubes, remove and finish weld.
        I.e. If I'm looking for 5 degrees of caster, I'll measure the
angle at
        the floor to make sure it's zero. Then measure the angle on the
        knuckles. Assuming the floor was at zero, the axle will be
        until the knuckle is at 5 degrees. I would do this to both
sides to
        ensure it's not slightly twisted in the bushings. Anything
other than
        zero on the floor will cause the 5 degrees to be added to the
        Did that make sense and is it a viable plan?
