Alignment ?

When i did my icon leveling kit and installed the new castor cams i did not pay attention to the factory ones as far as which was on the left or right side so now i am doing a 4.5" setup and spoke with icon they said the castor cams that came with the leveling kit are not needed. My question is one cam states +0.12r/-0.12L the other looks like +0 if these dont make there way back to the right side will it make a dramatic effect on the front end? I will get it aligned once i get it set where i want it just want to do it once!

That is what i thought i read allot about these trucks being short on caster from the get go thats why i called Icon direct he said the drops give it plenty! I asked about the 1" spacer too he said still fine that is why i am asking the experts here it will not hurt my feelings to leave them in!

It looks like they will be staying in! what are the effects of having to much caster i know not enough will cause a death wobble whats the flip side?
thanks for the input!
