Got a great mechanic in SF who did my front end.

He told me that my caster is 0 degrees and I should get wedges/shims so it can be adjusted to specs (1 deg.).
Any one know who and where to get those shims?

Then he told me that my truck is leaning down 1" in the front left (driver) and is up by 1" in the rear right.

Anyone know what the probable cause is? Weak leaf spring?

Have to agree with weak-link

Caster specs on my 62 is 0 degrees 50' plus minus 45' I wouldn't worry about it. The only shims I've seen change it 2,4 or 6 degrees and they are designed for lifted rigs, not stock rigs. He may not be that great or at least doesn't get cruisers

As for the other problem worn out springs with a good chance for a broken leaf. Perfect chance to upgrade

x2 on the caster, but not sure about the lean. I've heard its pretty typical to have "cruiser lean" i've got a totally new suspension and it still leans, down driver's side.
