Specs attached. Adjustment methods are in the owner's manual and are abbreviated below.

Camber is adjusted by installing the appropriate offset pilot thimbles in the shock absorber arms.

Caster is changed by installing the appropriate tapered shims between the forward end of the torque arm and the lower support arm.

King pin thrust bearings should have preload of 3-1/2 to 5 lbs measured at the end of the spindle.

Toe-in is adjusted by turning both tubes an equal amount, taking care not to move the steering gear off the high spot.
