We have had great luck and success with setting the front cambers to -.3 to -.4 when we do our Pedders systems. we also pump up the casters using the Pedders EP9166, and use caster to adjust for road crown.

I also like to have the toes on the tight end of specs. I assume you have not strut rub as well? So if you are getting negative camber wear only up front, with no cupping issues, then a normal align will do. But if you are planning bushings, then you will have to re-align after bushings installed anyways. What bushings are you going to do?

Using the Pedders EP9166 front caster/radius rod bush, use the 8 & 2 mm shimes on the soutsdie and the 4mm shim on the inseide. Keep the OE shim on the left side for road crown adjustment. Then set the front cambers to -.3 to -.4. You will love the way it will drive
