Back together. My alignment numbers on the pass side still seemed weak after fixing this. Dropped marks on the ground from the rear of each torsion bar socket, made a line across that. Dropped marks at the face of each LCA real close to the lower ball joint and also dropped marks from the front ball joint bolt in the spindle. Both sides were less than 1/8" difference.

Alignment numbers for DS I was able to get -.50* camber/+4* caster.
PS I was only able to get 0* camber/+1.5 caster.
Got kinda frustrated, started thinking about camber spacers and all that.

Decided to see how much my weight in the drivers seat changed stuff around. My wife plus a puppy in the car and PS came around to -.3* camber and +2.75* caster.
DS numbers changed to -.15* camber/+3.5 caster. slight adjustments to the DS and it's also at -.3* camber/+2.75* caster.

I think I'm losing a full degree of caster from the rear of the car being higher than the front so I'm happy with 2.75* caster.

If my EX wife were to sit in the drivers seat of my car, I'd need a block of wood under the frame rail to limit the compression of even my 1.15 torsion bars!
