On my '00 I have 16.25" LCA's and 3/8" worth of shims behind the adjuster on the frame end of the LCA's. I had to take a die grinder with a carbide burr to the slot and lengthen it slightly to allow me to put in the 3/8" shim.

I went to go.jeep.com and found there is a corralation between the angle of the machined face of the diff and the angle of the steering knuckles. As far as I can tell I'm running with somewhere between 7-8* of caster. Any less and the Jeep wants to wander all over the road.

Oops, just reread your post, I assume you meant caster not camber. Camber is not adjustable unless you have adjustable ball joints.

slight delayed response on my part but thanks for the answers. info is greatly appreciated
I plan on getting some RC fixed 16.25" lowers and reset my caster to 6* hopefully these 2 mods will eliminate my deathwobble. after adding a new stabilizer it has calmed my deathwobble down to just a shimmy after hitting bumps. not a fix to the problem but atleast it makes it driveable again until I can get my new arms next month.
