max positive caster alignment cams for 2018?

Can someone link me to the caster cams that will add the most positive caster to a 2018 F250?

I am having my truck realigned after a 2.5" level next week and want to have the right parts on hand when I go.

I see Carli has some that are + 2 degrees caster. Does someone have a part # or link for a +2.5 or +3 that will work with a 2018 F250?

Thanks!

I need the numbers also, I am in the same situation and after 3 alignments I need the cam kit to get it closer.

Thanks, Josh! Your alignment looks like what I'm aiming for. Good to know that 3.9-4 caster can be had with just adjusters.

Which leveling kit do you have installed? Do you have a track bar relocation bracket or adjustable track bar installed with it?

Thanks! I hope to have my alignment squared away Friday.

I have the same 2 degree Carli shims with Carli's 2.5 in level.

My caster ended up at 3.6 and my truck drives perfectly. Very happy at that setting, mine is a 2017 F350 6.7.

Do you have a print out of your alignment so we can see where it is now?

I tried the 23268+23269 combo and the steering felt very stiff almost sticky with a very dominant left pull. So then went to 23228 (Carli's recommended shims) truck drives way better now.

Bottom line is all of these trucks dont require the same bushings or cams. Mine has not been back on the alignment rack so I have no idea where my caster is now. I have switched bushings multiple times now. I would rather get it feeling the way I want it to feel, then maybe I'll let the alignment guy tell me where the caster is at and check toe, but toe isn't hard to measure. I've ran my current setup that never went to the alignment rack for 7500 mi.without rotating tires and see zero cupping or feathering.

My Point is if you dont wanna keep going back and forth to the alignment shop, grab some of each bushing listed above and figure out which feels best to you.
