Alignment issues after lowering Jeep, eibach, 4600's

I lowered my '11 limited with Eibachs & Bilstein 4600s all the way around. I also installed a Hellwig rear sway bar and oem rear SRT end links. Since I ended up having to cut off all four end links, I ordered a set of Moogs for the front.

My front caster and rear camber couldn't be put back into spec. Allegedly. Alignment done by Firestone. I think adjusting the front caster would require adjusting the upper control arm. I could see where that would be labor intensive, a few hours maybe?
Front= +6.5 _ +6.4
Rear= -1.4 _ -1.6

Anyone else with alignment issues?

How much did you wind up dropping your Jeep?


I have the QuadraLift suspension om my GC, and have been contemplating lowering it, as has been discussed in a different thread in this section of the site. However, I'm afraid of running into the same problem you have, this is, running out of adjustment.. I've looked at where the pivot bolts currently are, in the adjustment slots in the frame, and I'm near "maxed out" as is, without adding more negative camber, by lowering the vehicle.
