Default SPC Upper Control Caster/Camber Setting?

So for those of you who have installed the SPC upper control arms, what setting did you start out with on the caster? IMO it would be 0 degrees but I just want to clarify that before I finish the install.

I am installing H&R springs and SPC front and rear camber arms. So far I have the front camber all the way out and the front caster at 0 degrees. I know I will need an alignment but if 0 is good then it will save time and money when I go to get it done.

Also, when you had your car aligned after installation were there any problems that the techs had doing the alignment?

Thanks in advance

Hello, I resurrected this post just to prove I searched. With so many people running these arms these days.....I have a similar question.

I'm lowered about an inch on Eibach springs w/ stock base/sport struts.

I'm about to install some SPC UCAs and I'm just wonder how our cars drive on the street with a little added caster. I'm planning on getting an alignment and I just need a good starting point.

Would it be a good idea to start with +.75 degree added caster? or should I just leave it neutral.

Also, should my camber bolt be maxed out + or leave it in the center for the alignment. My car has obvious -camber with the stock arms.

Hopefully I can find a good alignment tech. Many thanks!!!
