Light Racing UCA Camber setting install Question

Ok, I've been reading all over the place on here and the other forums and can't find any good information about where to set the Camber setting to start with during the installation of the arms.

First off, I am going to set the caster setting to 0 degree's with the SPC logo facing outwards. From what I've read this is the best setting for a 2.5" lift to start with.

So, I just ordered some of the light racing UCA's and would like to know before hand the initial settings or the position to start with on camber so I don't have to end up getting it aligned several times like some people have.
When I install what is the best position to start with on the camber?
On the FJ forum they say to pull it out all the way, but I don't know if the tacoma is different then the FJ, I hear the ball joints on FJ's have more usable range of motion if that matters? I think I read somewhere that someone set their tacoma 1/2 way in the middle to start with.
I have read the instructions and it don't give any specific's on the camber like it does on the castor.

I would like to get it set the best I can to start with so they won't even have to adjust that upper ball joint bolt for camber. Or is my thinking wrong here and will they have to adjust it anyways?


My current alignment specs are :
Castor left: 1.6 Castor right 1.7
Camber left and right: 0
Toe: 0

I'm going to bump the Castor up to 2.4 left and 2.7 right, while keeping everything else at 0.

Any suggestions?

Well I had an interesting experience but ended up getting it aligned at 2.3* caster and roughly 0* camber with the ball joints of the LR UCAs set all the way out and the logo facing out.
