how bad are these alignment specs?
caster + 2.0 caster +.6
camber -.5 camber -.5
tow in 1 1/16th in.

the shop said they couldnt get more caster on one side? is there a probably cause for that? could i have a bent rod or something?
Thanks

As you suspect, everything looks pretty good except the caster. Did he tell you why he thought he couldn't get more caster on one side - worn parts, bent unibody?

he said he was out of adjustment. on caster? whatever that means technicly? ..then when i persisted on exactly what component was bent? or not even NEW he suggested a possible bent frame? if indeed that is the case, would i be better off with the caster being +.6 on both sides instead of +2 and +.6 ? or should i leave it alone? he said it doesnt pull to the right. guess i will find out in the morning.
Thanks
Steve

Toe-in should be 1/16-1/8 inches, not 1 1/16. Maybe that why it doesn't pull. How is the tire wear?

Steve,
We need some bio information on you and your car. I know two wizard alignment shops in Southern California that really know their vintage Mustangs. Where are you?
