Hey y'all i got a 78 F150 4X4 with a 4" BDS lift and CAGE offroad progressive rate springs and 35X12.50 tires. I know the lift came with radius arm drop brackets to accomodate the lift, but the wheels arent returning after a turn as well as i want them to. Would a 2 deg or 4 deg change in castor angle help out a bit without wearing the hell out of my tires. P.S. i also have a dual steering stabilizer.

grease the balljoints and the rest of the steering
I have almost no caster and mine returns to center just fine
stock arms, 9" springs, and no drop brackets, only 7° C bushings for correction

lol everything is in great order, new tie rods (greased aver few weeks) tire pressure is a little low at 30psi tho. And i got a brand new box on the way, should be here in two weeks at a price of $2000 (OUCH!!)

Most likley your steering box is worn and needs a sector shaft adjustment to bring it back if your steering is lack luster in response..
