You want to change them because of radial tires. The factory specs were for Bias ply tires.. All you need to do is change the positive to negative..

Drivers side wheel,
Caster, Positive, 2 degrees.
Camber, Negative, .25 degrees.
Toe, in, 1/25

Passenger side wheel.
Caster, Positive, 2.5 degrees. More because of road drainage crown..
Camber, Negative, 25 degrees.
Toe, In, 1/25

You may hear you want as much caster as possible, don't listen to that...

Make adjustments with air pressure, check first thing in the morning.. My 69 el Camino with Cooper Cobra 225/70R15 tires on stock 15 x 7 first generation rally wheels likes 39 lbs...

Hope this helps..
