I am tryng to fix my JK diesel DW problems and would like to know:

2.- What people are running WITHOUT DW (caster)
3.- Lenght of top front arms for that NON-DW caster.

Thanks

Depends on tire size. Stock is toe-in at .20 degrees, about a 1/4 inch total toe.(on 37's should be a total of 1/8 inch)

The caster is 4.2 degrees, most lifted run about 5 degrees.

Camber is -.25 degrees and is not adjustable.

Have you modded any? DW is most generally caused by either improperly torqued bolts, or worn bushings on your front end steering components.

The Tracbar is 90% at fault in DW threads

I am not qualified to answer that one. but ttt so maybe somebody who can explain it will.

My attempt is this: As you lift the vehicle you change the driveline angle, therefore the caster would ?? (just as if you rolled the axle forward) but needs to be brought higher (as in rolling the axle backwards) in order to maintain a proper driveline angle.
