Caster issues

Does anybody have a chart or equation for how shackles affect caster up front?
I have 10 degrees of caster up front. Obviously the guy I had narrow my Dana 44 did something wrong.
I'm running the longer M.O.R.E. shackles to clear my BDS springs.
I'm planning on getting 4 degree shims for now to correct it.

Wow. The guy welded those C's way out of whack.

I don't have a direct shackle length to degrees of caster chart/equation, but the longer your shackles, the lower the caster.
