The guy at the 4x4 shop scared me poopless when he said a leading cause of death of due to improper castor angle in lifted vehicals.Any help would be grateful.
EDIT: So i guess my questions is... What is the best way to adjust castor using the OEM driveshaft without having to replace both upper and lower CA's??
You need to do a bit more reading. There is no driveshaft adjustment. The Tcase is solid mounted. the axle is kept on a predictable plane. The DS is only a connector. You go up and out, the connection needs to be longer. It is reacting to the length not causing it.
You dont need to replace uppers. Only lowers. And they need to be longer not shorter... also what do you mean you are sitting on 3" of lift with no control arms. That is literally not possible.
