Lifted Jeep Caster Specifications

Does anybody know the caster specifications for a wrangler lifted with a two inch BB? I want to change the specs to avoid getting death wobble. Thanks

If a lack of caster induces DW you have components that were worn about 1% away from having DW anyway.

Id shoot for about 5.5-6 degrees for 2". Im at 5.5 degrees at 2.5" andshe drives like butter.

Are you having issues with DW already or just trying to prevent it?

Caster won't cause DW. Well, I mean if it's excessive and your components are close to ****ting the bed, MAYBE.

You have a budget boost, you are fine.
