If you have updated to radial tires it is different. If you have standard 2ply 4ply nylon you could set the Camber 1/2degree pos on camber and 0 to 1 on caster with the rt. side i/s degree more pos. to compensate for the road crown. Toe should be 1/8 total toe in 1/16 each wheel w/steering wheel straight ahead, centered, & locked. If You have radials set toe at 0. Double check for worn parts prior to alignment. if you have worn part an don't repair you are wasting your time. If you have a bad pull to one side while driving make sure you don't have a crooked belt or different size tires mounted on car. Good Luck!
