2008 F350 2.5" level need new caster cams?

Just got my 2.5" newton kit installed and my local dealer went to align it and said they couldn't get it perfect because there wasn't enough caster adjustment. From what i can tell there are aftermarket caster cams. Would this be the solution to my problem short of installing a 4-link? (planning on doing that later just not in the cards right now) If i had new cams installed would they need to come back out later when i get a 4 link set up?

Thanks guys,
Scott

That does help thank you! So a good alignment shop should have all sorts of different sizes on hand? Or are these a super duty specific part that i should order an assortment of and bring with me?

Icon sells caster adjustment cams for their 2.5" lifts. I used them on my newton lift and it worked great.

Not to highjack the thread, my apologies; but just out of curiosity, can you actually put a 4-link kit on just a 2-1/2" level? I was under the impression you had to have like a 4" lift to get the room for a 4-link.

True but castor shims won't get you enough castor on a lifted truck and the vast majority of axles in good condition don't need camber adjustment..if if they do the Icon cams are not adjustable so you would need different ones.

I align these trucks everyday....it always trips me out how people say 4 tenths one or the other don't matter....but it does...it either wrong or its perfect. Your product is a very good product but like I said its either wrong or its right...i align several 4 WD clubs trucks and I haven't had not even one person to complain on my work...at least not here lately lol....its just depends on who you talk to and how much pride you put into your work on weather its good or not...not bashing in any way but I take my job seriously and want a good name in this busniness
