Yes. You can do both. I suggest caster first then reactive caster.

john sorry but one more question, this is really confusing me
how does moving the upper arm forward (3 spacers behind and none in front for 6 deg of caster) add caster, i thought adding caster would be laying the top of the king pin more towards the rear of the car. IE putting more spacers in front of the arm
i must be missing some thing or looking at it ass about

I used to get messed up wit hexactly the same thing. It's just weird geometry that's making it hard to undertstand. You (like me) are asssuming that the hinge-points are perpindicular, and the upper and lower arms are on a parralel axis. As far as I can eye-ball they aren't and that's what makes it work that way.
I think.

It has confused me as well, but putting shims back moves the arm back, tilts the kingpin back, and adds caster. The center block is the stationary part.

thanks guys, it was not i didn't believe john, just trying to work it out in my head and it seemed the opposite of what i thought lol.
did try the 10 deg active caster block today and it was terrible so went back to 5 deg.
on another note my new ceramic nitride diff balls turned up today and what a difference very very nice.
