My 1/2 drive air gun spun that 18 mm bolt right out no problem.

Not here. I tried my 1/2" drive air wrench and it was useless. There was definitely blue thread adhesive on the bolts and MAN was it working well!! )

Does anyone know if the caster increases or decreases when weight is removed from the front because of hitch weight at the rear. Also, is there any harm having +6.5 and +6.8 caster?

Your particular chassis will have a set of caster specs. A positive caster angle of 6.5 is toward to max end of many caster specs. Yours may or may to be in that range. Weight on the hitch, if it causes the rear to squat, does affect alignment specs. If you have air suspension with ride height valves then the alignment specs should not be measurably effected by the hitch weight.

If the rear end rises (for and aft) by 1 degree then the front end caster would be reduced by 1 degree.

Please let us know what sleeves allowed for +6.5 to +6.8 caster on an E350/E450 because I want some. For example 2004 Ford E350/E450 specification is LH +1.25 to +6.75 and the RH +1.75 to +7.25 and all model years are pretty much the same.
