With the car level, they call for 1-5 degrees of positive caster and 0 degrees of camber. Set toe in at 1/8 to 3/16 inch.

Foe the most part the width of the front tire impacts camber while the option of power steering vs. manual steering impacts castor. If you have a really wide front tire too much camber will cause the car to be twitchy. With power steering you can add more castor without adding undue steering effort.

with the car at ride height, usually 2 to 3 degrees caster, zero camber, 1/16" toe in per side would be a good daily driver setting with a manual rack and your wheel /tire combo..
