I'm a total rookie, but let me tell you the way it has been explained to me :

It will tilt backwards, with the front end at ride height, somewhere between 9* and 12* (the RF) that sets your caster.

If I am wrong, don't feel bad, nobody answers any of my Sprint Q's on here anyways.

14, put the front axle together and in the car......set everything up....then take a angle finder and put it on top the right side steering arm, It's nice and flat and machined sqaure.......about 12 degrees tipped back on top......POSITIVE CASTER.

Caster slip is built into the axle because the king pin bosses are welded on.......they are built with about 3 degrees, if right side is 12 left should be about 9 degrees.....
