I found where Mustangs and Fords(August 2000) published alignment specs for 65-73 Mustangs. They are as follows:
Left
Caster 2 degrees postive
Camber 1/2 degree negative
Toe 1/32 out

Right
Caster 2 1/2 degrees positive
Camber 1/2 degree negative
Toe 1/32 out

The thing that concerns me most is the toe out instead of toe in. Has anyone ever tried these
settings? If not, what are some good settings to use.

Thanks,
Mike

Hi, My book shows the specs for a 65 as follows
Caster -1/4 to +3/4 with +1/4 being optimum
Camber 0 to +1 with optimum being+1/2
toe-in 0.25 to 0.312
This book shows every year being different in specs. I had trouble with my frontend and when I set it according to this book it drives almost as good as SWMBO 95 G/T vert

For a car running radial tires the factory specs are no good.
I run 0 camber 1.5 caster and 1/8-1/16 toe in for our street
cars. The more neg. camber you put in the more the car will
have grip, but it will also wear the tires more.

Agree with Opentracker. That's a good street setup. I have +2 Caster, -0,5 Camber and 0 Toe. I might change to Opentracker's spex, because I am just a wannabe racer.

And that different Caster suggested depends on what sort of roads you mainly drive. Do they have noticiable road crown, that is the road very banked from the center to sides. If not, have similar caster both sides.
