Another Caster angle questions

OK I put an angle meter on top of the castle nut. It reads 6 degrees to the firewall. Is this positve or negative? Which way is within specs? If its out any idea how big of a shim to install?

I saw the pic of meter in an earlier post but I can make out which way is the front of the vehicle.

Thanks
Dave

If the lower half of the inner knuckle (the C on the end of the axle tube) is in front of the upper half of the C then your caster is positive. Similarly if the lower ball joint is in front of the upper ball joint your caster is 6 degrees positive and just right.
