The kickup bushing is the pill in the A plate. The anti-squat bushing is the pill in the C plate.

The stock caster setting is 16 degrees I believe. I think you can adjust from 14 to 18 degrees in 2 degree increments depending on how you install the caster bushings.

The caster setting can be determined by looking at the location of the hinge pin holes in the spacers as follows:

14 degrees: Front bushing hole is high, rear bushing hole is low
16 degrees: Hole is centered in both bushings
18 degrees: Front bushing hole is low, rear bushing hole is high
