I have a 1971 Chevelle that I rebuilt the suspension to stock. I assume the A-arms are original. I got the car aligned yesterday I asked for -.75 camber 1/8" toe in and as much positive caster as he could dial in. I got 14.5(left) and 15(right) Degrees! Car tracks great but is this way to much caster. I didn't know that much caster was possible on one of these cars. None of the adjustments are maxed out either...Thoughts?

Whoa! That's way more than I've ever heard of with stock parts.

I suspect your A-arms are installed on the wrong sides (L on R and R on L)... that's the only possible way to get that much caster with stock A-arms. Typically you'll max out at around 2 to 3 degrees with stock A-arms.

Thats more caster than I've ever seen with ANY control arms...stock or aftermarket...over twice as much!!
