That doesn't pardon not getting a wheel alignment to celebrate the change in +castor though.

Thanks, but I don't really understand it - by looking at it you can only adjust it to add positive camber? amirite?

you can add camber, caster or camber+caster, any good wheel aligner will adjust the top bearing plates to solve pulling/uneven wear problems as well as adjusting front and rear.

Mine has

oo L
co

front >

oc
oo R

According to the diagram on page 1, this is position B on the right and position C on the left. Should I assume that the positions are rotated and that the position marker is already in the "default" position (and thus rotate the positions accordingly), or that someone has rotated the mounting blocks to an uneven configuration for reasons beyond my comprehension?

Ok, so if I wanted to move them to +30 caster on both sides I should still follow the instructions on Page 1?

Kind of makes sense if it's set uneven, I was expecting it to corner as well or better than mum's KH, but it just feels...off.
