This was my last alignment last August I seem to have lost caster since doing the PMS arm plates and black series polybushing?
What castor should cup arms run?

These are my current settings.. I believe the caster on a cup setup is normally around 3 degrees, which is what mine was until i fitted RC kit and pms plates.. So i also lost a degree of caster.. Since the last time i was out i have added 15mins of camber and 2 mins of toe out and also done Epas conversion with BRT quick rack. Im yet to try out this new setup..

I've taken the back axle off this afternoon, what a s**t job! Took me longer to get the 6 caged bolts that hold it all the the chassis than to fully strip it down and cut off the spring hangers! Its off now though so happy day. Blasting it tomorrow ready for welding gussets

Once it's all back on and I've got fresh rear suspension I'll need to get rear alignment checked to get some shims. What the deal with rear camber money on 1.5° now do I need .5 or maybe 1° more?

Personal opinion?

I want mine to rotate a bit more on the rear, not too much though. Im thinking 2 and a tad less toe, leave the rear springs and no arb

It could have been like it from new, they will be welded together in a jig and if the guy making it isnt on the ball he may not line it up perfectly pre welding. Then theres the welding itself which can pull things out of shape with the heat.

I'm removing my axle today for refurb I'll get some pictures on my thread
It's 32 minutes off from perfectly straight basically.

Imagine 60 minutes being 1 degree, so yours is basically half a degree off.

That equates to about 3mm on a 15-16" wheel.
As said above. 2 x 30min shims will solve the existing issue.. But if you're gonna be refurbishing your rear beam then id just wait till you're all done there then get it rechecked.. New bushes, new nuts and bolts will knock everything out again..

Thanks for all the help guys, I'm glad its not a million miles out which is what I was worried about. Then again 3mm in my world is a vast void.
