Caster Adjustment?

So I installed a 2.5" leveling kit a few weeks ago and my caster isn't right. It wonders a little and is affected by bumpsteer at speed. Can the caster be adjusted to drie right again? I emailed 4 wheel parts down in Ft Worth about it and they said I would have to get the BD Caster adjusters. They said The adjusters and labor to put it on would be 650.00. Is this the only way to fix the caster problem? Thanks for the help in advance.

I am not sure about the 06 model, I would assume its the same as all superdutys but my local alignment shop said the adjusters are only about 35 to 50 bucks each and another 30 per side to install. I think it goes around the ball joint some how and is shaped like an oval. They turn it one way or the other to get the caster (lean) they nead. Not sure why a leveling kit would have messed with your caster though.

you need caster cams like this Icon Vehicle Dynamics 2005-2010 FSD Alignment Cam Kit - Front Suspension Alignment Cams

But most shops can get something like the icon ones depending on the amount of adjustment needed. I would go to an alignment shop that knows what there doing and you should be fine. should be around 150-200 all said and done with cams installed.
