You need to find a competent front end shop.
That’s the hard part as I’m currently in St Petersburg FL, however I am moving to 8.8 acres around Dade City FL within the weeks. I’m hoping I have better luck up there, I will post the specs in my next post

Supersprings makes a 2 inch spring lift designed for trucks with heavy front ends, like snowplows or heavy bumpers.

That said, I have 37's and no lift so...

Yup. That part. Generally offset bushings for ball joints/king pins adjust camber. Some can compensate for some caster.

My original post was just an in general comment.

In case you were responding to my post above above yours, yes, of course, but not differential, or out-of-parallel caster. You can't twist the axle tube. The only way to fix that is with eccentric ball joints, or by welding and re-drilling the knuckle, or by grinding the knuckle yoke off the axle, rotating it, and re-welding it.

But differential caster should not happen. It would have to be damage or gross manufacturing error.

K9Kodi My factory tires were ty nexens. Wore the outside quick. Next set of tires, got aligned, wore the outside like crazy with factory alignment specs. Finally got new tires again, went with thuren fabrications recommended specs, truck drives better and wears tires evenly!
