Need some feedback on caster correction options.

97 LC with TJM 50mm lift and 30mm spacers up front. Distance from center of hub to bottom of fender flare approximately 22.5" on both sides.

I ran the OME 2* bushings and caster equaled +0.5 degree on each side (not enough). Took those out and installed 3.5* bushings and caster equaled +3.9* Drivers and +4.1* Passenger side.

My bushings have disintegrated and considering plates. I would like to get back to about the same caster reading with the 3.5* bushings but not sure if the plates will push me way over the max caster spec and cause drive line issues.

Any feedback would be much appreciated.

I have the TJM 50mm suspension and run Landtank 4" caster plates. Fender to hub measurement was a hair over 23" before I installed a front bumper, now closer to 22". I haven't been to the alignment shop to see what my actual readings are, but the truck drives great. I do have a DC front shaft. Probably going to put a 1" spacer in front to bring it back to where it was before I put the bumper on.

Thanks for the info. I'll probably go with Landtank 2.5" plates in an effort to not add too much caster. Should put me in the +3* range.
