Seriously? I had to answer that? It's like talking to my 4 year old daughter.
Seriously, why the sarcastic attitude from the both of you? Could there be a possible curiosity on my part (attempting to offer concise information to you) want to know what is the OP's rationale and motivation to the change or adjust these particular fixed points of the suspension; hence, my friggin' question before giving an answer.

This is not a typical question that comes up everyday in forums, so I was curious to know if there was a back story to your question. I do not know if OP's desired to adjust the slip angle or address a self centering action problem (too little or too much) at low speeds. Adjustment to the caster is not typically done.

By the way hack its not spelled "castor", it's caster.
