Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Had an alignment done on my truck and
was told the caster was froze or seized up.
What would cause this and how do I fix it?

Corrosion is the cause, And if it's there then it everywhere in the front suspension and other components. Best to have the suspension throughly checked and repair as necessary, some these vehicles require heating certain componets to replace others, so I recommend a good front end shop to do your work, then an alignment when all the work is finished and you should have a solid rig that you feel safe driving.
