I have my camber gauge I gues I can fab up a adaptor to the spindle. I (we) have no baseline though. I think straight up for trails. The new lower arms are supposed to have the shock mounts higher i don't know if i want to do the lowers??

Will you be able to tell us the before Caster/Camber and after? Sure would be nice to know

I'd have to fab up an adaptor first, Castor Camber gauges I have are to go up against a wheel or hub

Do you think this added ski pressure? Does your 2020 require more steering effort?
I haven't ridden it yet. Just finished up converting a 2017 M8000 to a trail sled. Figured since I was buying front end part, why not put the new stuff on. Really hoping it performs well.

Not sure of the brand but its the kind that sticks to the hub and for auto use I have a set of turn plates
ok I have alignment systems we use for race cars so it's not the same as what I have

Does it push any more or less?
The push is gone. When I installed the front end I didn’t make any changes other than the bolting on the new arms and spindles and saw an instant improvement. After I put some miles on it I put about 2 inches of sag into the suspension and that really made it come alive. Then I ditched the stock coupling blocks because those aren’t need where I was going lol.

Thanks Good Info
I have curve XS skis and they don't push but steering effort is defiantly higher than I would like. They do give a confident feeling that the sled will go where you point it. Do you think the new spindles will reduce my steering effort with the curve skies?

the c and a I am running steered terribly on my older procrosses I quit running them. I threw them on to test a theory and they steer good now. Not as good as old sno pro but way better than my past procross. The curves you have don’t steer as hard as the c and a so you should see a nice improvement

If you decide to swap out your black ones let me know, I would be interested in them
