Got the caster/camber set. They put in a 1/8"shim and now drives beautiful. My dealership split the cost with me. Nice guys, as it was a used coach.

Glad the adjustment worked out for you Daven. I am curious though, where exactly did they install the 1/8" shim?

I would be interested in what the measured angles were before and after the adjustment.

"Assume" the shims were placed between the axle and the front trailing arms to either increase or decrease the tilt of the axle either forward or backward [castor]. On a solid front axle, any adjustment to camber means bending the axle--doubt if that comes in a "kit." I too would be curious to know just how much castor adjustment [in degrees] was needed to cure the steering pull.
