Ive heard you dont want less than 8 degrees but ive also heard that people have up to 20 degrees in caster.What determines how much caster is needed when building beams??? is it how much travel your shooting for or is it something else???

Caster will change as the suspension cycles. Figure out where your ride height is going to be and set your caster at that point like you would with anything else. Somewhere in the 6-8* range is good.

I would agree that the 6-8* range is what you wanna shoot for. . .you commonly see up to 12-14* but I have never personally seen or heard of anyone having their caster set higher than that.
