alignment with dana 60s

Just upgraded to the Mopar 60s with 40 inch Goodyear's and hydro assist. Steering is all over the place. What is the best caster and toe settings for those that have upgraded axles to get it to drive nice?

Thanks. Ive been googling elsewhere and someone said they were at 5 degrees. Tried that and its a lot better. I'll let my guy know you are having luck at 6-8. I daily drove the jeep for 4 years before daily driving my 6 door truck for 2 and then been in my GC SRT8 for the last 1.5 but want to start driving the JKU a little more and have to make it drive nicer.

6-8 degrees of caster is a lot for the dana axles with a 6" lift. Driveshaft bind and clearance might be a concern and something to check if you go that route. You can at least lock it out so vibration at that angle would not be an issue on the highway in 2WD.

Some build info here:

Yeah there's no set number to shoot for with pinion/caster. Every setup is different. I run max caster before getting vibes with the front hubs locked on the UD60s. Of course I daily with the hubs unlocked and it rides great.

Toe set to 1/8"
