0 Camber, 0 Toe and the higher the Castor the better, shoot for 2 or better on the Castor if you can get there. With factory UCA's, I doubt you'll get that high though.

X2. With your setup, you will probably need aftermarket UCA's to get back into factory specs.

I've been told as much caster as possible. I have mine at roughly 2.5 but thats because my LCA's were seized.

Without aftermarket UCA's they're just gonna try to get as close to stock as possible but it will never drive right, it will drive straight, but just feel loose.
