If you do need a little caster bias fine tuning, which is pretty normal, loosen the upper radius arm bolts at the axle also, then re-tighten once the handling is good. So, I took the truck back to Firestone and got it aligned again. Some mild off road now and then. Without it I lose my source of transportation as well as my ability to earn a living. An average two slice toaster will use 1000 watts. This means moving the arrow on the cam to the rear of the truck, is increasing caster degree.
I don't believe that Chevrolet ever put a diesel in a half-ton pickup. Or try hovering around the shop and keep on them till they get it right. The dealership itself said that it is not part of the recall on the ball joints and lower suspension. I told the tech they needed to do it again.

The cam bolt is actually inside and moving the axle itself, while the cam washers are located by the arms, unlike previous generations. If there is any defect, as shown in the illustration, check these points: Premature parting. The alteration or removal of an airbag resulting in death is an act that will face criminal prosecution. Reason being, radius arms make the front axle act like one big swaybar. Ball joints are a touchy subject on these Dodge Rams. If the ball joints are in decent shape, and the tie rod ends at the steering knuckles are in good shape, the wheels stay pointed where they are set with the toe adjuster. It depends on what you mean… Nope, different engines and different transmissions.

On trucks the rear axle is solid with no adjustments meaning the only thing they did was a alignment like they would on any other vehicle. It would have had to have been custom installed.
The vehicle came to a stop independently and was towed to the contacts home. The difference is what it takes to get those numbers given factory adjustment limitations. To keep this simple and focused on these solid axle trucks, I'll just say that a great indicator of your toe setting is what your front tires look like. Get the toe in set to zero first!!!! Compare that to the cost of updating your aligner every year! Please note a professional alignment is recommended after this item has been installed.
