SAI is steering axis inclination. Courtesy of http://www.mgf.ultimatemg.com/...f.htm:

Do you have a camber kit? That may cause your SAI to be out of spec.

usually caster is around .5 degree higher on the right to help against pulling due to the crown on the road... if it is equal on both sides that usually leads to a pull
