I'll take it to an alignment shop before settling on a specific shim size. It's entirely possible I'm not measuring it correctly. Thanks for all the help!

just buy a magnet stick dial degree indicator. you put it on the top of the knuckle or try and get it as close to flat if you can where the arm bolts on the knuckle. Clear a mud?

That's exactly how I did it, except I couldn't find a flat enough spot on the top, so I used the straight edge along the bottom. ~2.75 degrees of negative caster, using that method. I'd try driving around with the 4 degree shims I have, but I mistakenly purchased the weld-on style. Getting the measurement right the first time would be easier than grinding those things off if they don't do the trick. i'm not sure I want to risk a test drive with 'em just tacked on.
