D60 Castor?

On page 9 of this it says to set up the brackets with the pinion up at 1.5 degrees but it's for a 44. Is this the same figure for a 2004 Superduty 60, or anyone know where to find this info? I'm getting ready to tack brackets.

Are you going to rotate the inner c's or leave them in stock form? If you are leaving them in stock form them just rotate the housing where your c's are c at 4.5 degrees of caster and run it

Doesn't he need to consider pinion angle too?

when I set mine I referenced RK instructions. I set the pinion as they recommend and that put D60 at 6degrees or so. I didnt rotate my C's . I googled ford D60 castor and found the recommend angle. You should be good , mine handles great.

OK, so 6 degrees measured from a machined surface? Like y'all, I'm going to try to set the link geometry up like stock, as I'm working with a system designed for factory axles.

Way excited!

I think there are 2 ways . My 94 had adjustable caster bushing so I had to take a rod and go between the 2 mounts and measure the angle . Also the machined surface should work as well. Good luck ! It will all be worth it !

Use the machined flat area where the alignment bushing goes into the upper ball joint. She'll be dead on.

Yes, but if you arent rotating the inner c's then your pinion angle should be good too. That way you can have 2 +/- degrees of adjustable caster with bushings on the upper ball joint

yeah, not cutting Cs, just going to match factory specs as closely as possible. Thanks for everyone's help.
