Caster angle can be changed with a realignment of the washers located between the legs of the upper control arm. To adjust the caster angle, an adjustment kit consisting of one 3mm and one 9mm washer must be used. Install as shown in the illustration.

You must always use two washers that total 12mm, with one washer at each end of the floating tube.
