i don't have the specs, but if the alignment shop doesn't have them i would find a different shop.
the shop i worked at had a fat book full of specs.
i wrote down the first gen specs, but lost the paper.

this is what Brian(NOGO) gave me:)
Here are some specs:

Camber: 0 deg R and L

Caster: 2.0 deg R and 1.5 deg L (You can increase caster a bit if you have the front tire clearance, but I recommend a bit more on the right than the left to compensate for road crown)

Toe: .1 deg total toe in

I have notice a couple of shops using the extra caster because of road crown before..............what about if the roads have differing amounts of crown or no crown at all? Does this have effect on things?

1/2 degree has been the standard here in California for our roads.It seems to work out about right.No matter what you do it can pull on some road surfaces.

Here is what Chevy 2 Only has up on its website regarding stock alignment specs:

"1/4 degrees positive camber both sides 1 to 1 1/2 positive caster, no more than 1/4 degree difference side to side set toe to "0" or 1/64 out. It may take 2 hours to get the above spec but you must adhere to it to make it right!"
