Upper control Arm eccentric bolts.

TL;DR - 98 b4000 with rear shackle lift. Looking for knowledge on eccentric cams for alignment, specifically caster.

I've replaced my upper control arms and most suspension and finally got around to doing more than toe for my alignment, left side caster/camber is ok with 3.5 / -1.0 And right side is 2.7/ -.5

Right side is supposed to be 4.5 for caster and she's adjusted as far as she will go with stock cam bolts. Does anyone have experience with bigger cam bolts?

There are cam bolt kits on summit. It's where I got mine. You need 2 sets for each side.

If the giy knows what he's doing he does not need cam bolts ,you want caster even side to side even if not in spec it won't pull, to either side, the upper arms can be adjusted with out cam bolts,my 2002 was just done and he had no problems

Pry bar and two people.

However, the truck currently already has eccentrics in the upper, and it's run out of travel at 3.2 degrees caster (correction from 2.9 above). What I need is bigger eccentrics with a greater deal of travel, which I guess summit may be my only bet as Canada has sweet dick all.

The upper control arms have slots in them all ready, just loosen them up put where you want and re tighten bolts
