For caster there is a 0.1 of difference, does it matter?

Try swapping your front tires and see if that changes anything. Those alignment numbers are decent and with the toe in and over 4 degrees caster it should self center just fine.

0.1 degree difference in caster is nothing to worry about or noticable.

You would only need to do that if your steering wheel was off center when the vehicle is driving straight on its own. If you are having to steer to make it go straight, it is not just a steering wheel centering adjustment.

SAI - Steering Angle Inclination

Ask the shop to check this. If itís within spec, your steering should turn itself back to center when you release the steering wheel after a turn.

Yes I hold steering wheel and keep it at centre position, car goes straight, no problem.
But I release it or reduce the force that holding steering wheel, my car goes right and steering wheel turns as well.

Seems there are 2 unequal forces on the 2 sides of the car.
