goalie94 Posted November 29, 2022 Share Posted November 29, 2022 Recently saw a super awesome detailed response from you about caster and camber and figured I’d ask here for the right answer as I’ve gotten a lot of bad advice already. Intro post to share. Just bought a new to me 2012 Jeep Jk. Previously had a TJ for the past 5 years and have our first kid on the way so needed something with more doors. I bought the jeep with all the modifications on it.Jeep has a 3 inch lift. Rock Krawler lower arms maybe synergy uppersJeep has anti rocks way bar.Flipped steering with Reid knuckles dana 30-4.88 gears.Adams drive shaftsTen Factory axle shafts. A bunch of other stuff...Needing some help and some of the people over on Facebook just arn't helpful. Bought the jeep maybe 3 months ago and it has been issue after issue. I bought it from a small auto shop who said he bought it with a bad transmission, rebuilt the transmission and checked everything over. Stupid me believed everything and I bought it. Front end seemed loose so I took it to a shop to get checked out and confirmed that some of the front end components were shot and needed replacing. Also noticed at the same time that one of the rear springs was cracked... Ordered new springs and 1 ton steering and thought I should be good to go. Took it to get an alignment and shop said Axle is twisted based off my Caster. one side was 3.01 degrees other side was 1.65 degrees. Got a couple Questions.....Not sure what route to go. Started looking for options of what I could do besides getting a new axle and having to swap everything over and regear.1. Started taking stuff off the front end and notice both lower control arms have a TON of play in them... Any way that my Adjustable control arms are effecting the Caster differences. 2. Does it really matter if Caster is so far off with the left and right... based off of what I know so far I think that Caster won't effect tire ware.. what does cross caster effect.3.Come across Caster ball joints... Was wondering if anyone has experience with putting on an offset ball joint to get my Caster closer.Would love to keep the same Axle... Get it good to go, add a truss and gusset and run it.
