Default Good alignment shop in north central/ northern indiana.

I put a budget boost along with a Kevin's off-road track bar conversion on my trusty old Jeep ZJ and talked to the local tire shop. I've always had good luck with them on stock stuff but I'm not sure now. I was asking them about putting as much positive caster allowed by the factory control arms. I said I just don't want it set right in the factory specs since the small lift affects the caster. The guy then started telling me that you can't adjust the caster on a live axle and I need to change the ball joints. I said not camber, caster he said oh that's Judy for the driveshaft angle. So as you can see now I'm pretty sure I don't want to deal with that. I can go to 4 wheel parts in Indy but they are probably real expensive. So does anyone know of a place down here that actually knows what caster is, what it does and how to actually align a vehicle not just stare at a screen and do what it says.
