I attached a couple images.
Yes, You have the right idea . If you were to take a level and hold it on the center of the spindle nut to make a true vertical to the floor and then make a centerline through the center of the kingpin, it would need to hit the floor ahead of the other center line . I personally like a lot of positve caster 'cause it makes the steering self centering after negotiating a curve . I never had the luxury of an angle finder, but using my method I shoot for about 2-1/2' to 3" difference . What that is in degrees, I can't tell you for sure but the 6 deg sounds good to me .
