Hey all just put some caster camber kits in my AU2 adjusted the caster to corner a bit better. They cost me $82 each. So hopefully the adjustment wont eat my tread. Do you recon i got them for a good price?

Pretty cheap.
What alignment settings have you got now?
Bit more caster doesn't go astray, what camber are you running?

Wheel alignment is still same it changed the camber a little.
The main reason i got it was because when i first got my ute i was driving home and it just had a few spits of rain and sideways i went panic and on the brakes got thrown into a gutter and bent something. Replaced Bushes Nolathayne all round needed a new front apron and a tie rod replaced them and it still pulls to the left. So i thought stuff it and bought the kit

Don't wheel alighnment places recommend that you run more camber on one side than the other to allow for the natural camber in the road? I know the place where i got my car lowered and castor camber kit installed etc. set my camber on my car at 5/6 of a degree on the L.H.S and 1/3 of a degree on the R.H.S.

Yeah, I simplified it a bit.
It's like -1.7 left, -1.3 right
Castor is generally different left to right too.
