Drove my vert about 100 miles today..recently had it aligned..everything is new in it. ..the alignment is perfect..it tracks straight as an arrow..yet at about 65..it just feels a bit light in the steering dept...you think the caster needs some adjustment?..or am I just to used to my Mach?..which is much tighter all around?

The steering can be improved by adding a tad more caster. I believe the caster is adjustable on your car is it not?

How much Caster are you guys running? I have 3* positive, and to be real honest, would like a bit more...

I had my '69 vert aligned on Friday and then drove down to Mustangs Unlimited, running in the 65-75 range depending on what traffic flow was doing. It felt great at highway speeds. The degree settings on mine are:

Camber: 0.7 (left front); 0.5 (right front)
Caster: 1.0 (LF); 0.8 (RF)
Toe: 0.09 (LF); 0.14 (RF)

Cross camber is 0.2 and cross caster is 0.2.

Total toe is 0.23

If yours is close to these then you may need to look for another reason why the steering would lighten at speed.
