Adjusting the LCAs to be longer, without checking the caster or the front driveshaft's u-joint pinion angle, is recipe for failure.
The added caster helps stabilize the suspension, but as pointed out, it's a band-aid, there is something(s) loose.
Too much front pinion angle can lead to vibs and pinion bearing damage, it's supposed to set at between 1/2 and 1 degree.
