    What is the correct caster on the FJ40? I think I heard it was 6 degrees, or was it -6 degrees?

    Thanks-

    I am cutting the axle tonight - when I weld it back after pointing the pinoin at the T-case, I turn the knuckles to +1 degree, correct?

    IMO, if you are running 35" or larger tires, you want about +3 or +4 degrees. Mine is +3 and works nicely. Larger/fatter tires like more caster for tracking.
