My right side Camber is off in the picture because of play in the wheel bearing. But your upper ball joint should be behind the upper you have way to much negative caster and that greatly affects the driveability
Yeah I JuST installed the lift, and I'm waiting on my adjustable control arms to fix the caster lol

I have 3.5 Rustys offroad springs front and rear with my zj and I just had to switch back to stock arms in the front because my aftermarket arms need new bushings. That's why I did the alignment. Did the place that did you alignment even touch the caster bolts? That read out is horrible. The one I pictured is with 3.5 springs adjustable track bar and stock lower and upper arms. Stock arms can be used up to at least a 4.5 inch lift

Im sitting at about 4" and honestly I highly doubt they did anything besides the toe, and take my $45. I will be going to another shop to do my final alignment, that's for sure, after I install the adjustable control arms of course.

The tech which was a 18 year old kid said he did do the caster but couldn't get it any better... Idk but I'm glad I bought adjustables just waiting on them to show up. And I'm sitting at 4.25" of lift.

There's the first problem. 18 year olds are not technicians
