I was curious about the missing caster numbers, as it isn't possible, I don't think, to set the camber independent of the caster by adjusting the lower control arm. I could be wrong, but I'd still expect caster numbers after an accident if only to show the front end isn't bent.

I've had someone suggest a slight difference in caster before to compensate for steeply crowned roads, too, such as we have around here. Saves pulling on the wheel to compensate.

Would wider tires affect the offset enough on the front end to cause trouble, too?
