PM'd with questions.

On another note, I was looking for caster specs and got some from Eibach pro-kit. There are two interesting items there.

One is that a 6.0 degree caster is "spec".

Second, and more important are the spring rates. They list the initial rate as well as the progressive rate. And, the progressive rate is higher than we had been led to believe.

Here is a copy and paste:
