Just search on google jeep zj "whatever you wanna find out".. It'll pretty much always direct you to a jeep forum thread. That's how I do it

As far as setting caster, as long as the pinion angle is good, you've got no vibes and it drives well, you're good.
Yeah no vibes or anything. But I measured from the back of the front tire to the wheel well and noticed I'm at 3"on the drivers side and 3 1/2 on the passenger side. Plus idk if I need to adjust the steering wheel or what but since replacing my track bar and stabilizer that my wheel is about 5* to the right and just seems like it has some play kind of annoying having to correct it constantly

Adjusting the drag link to center the steering wheel doesn't affect anything else. It won't change play either. If you've got some play, just get it so you're in the middle of the play when driving straight.

Also, if it pulls to one side, you can usually correct that by adjusting the caster on just the left or right. More caster (longer LCA) on that side will reduce a pull in that direction.

I rebuilt the rear bumper framework and finally replaced the driver's side rocker panel on my wife's ZJ. Should have cleaned the IAC on my ZJ, but a happy wife means a happy life
