cognito alignment specs?

Hey guys I got my trucked aligned when i put my upper control arms on. But didnt have the new tires on. The new tires are 285/75 r 16 and I had the stock tires on when i got it aligned and now I'm getting bad tire scrub. I was wondering if anyone could tell me the spec to align it seeing as the place didnt give me the papers back after they did it?

Caster, +4.0 to + 6.0 degrees with .8 degree caster split optimal for average road crown.
Camber, 0.0 to +.2 degrees, with both sides equal.
Toe, 1/16'' to 1/8" toe in, or stock toe setting.

^^straight from the instructions.

The caster split is very important so make sure to get a spec printout of before and after the alignment.

Do you have stock control arms or Cognito control arms on your truck?

If you have the Cognito's, is the ball joint mounted above or below the arm?

Not sure what's going on there then because that should work with the Cognito alignment specs.

how'd you get away with mounting the balljoint on the bottom? mines mounted on the top, and i called cognito and they told me you usually only mount the balljoint on the bottom if your running there 9-11 cognito kit..
