I'm adding adjustable strut rods with the rod ends.
What caster spec should I be using with them. 0*?
Now that there is no bushings to give and take? Is there any other adjustments to toe or Camber I should make due to the strut rods being installed
Driving on radial tires btw.

+2.5-3.5* caster

Shouldn't have to make any adjustment to camber or toe, but maybe get them double-checked.

Hey horseplay,
You want positive caster for sure, (i.e. nothing like 0). The 2.5 to 3.5 mentioned above is a good range.
Positive caster helps the car feel stable, less "steery", and helps the wheel come back to center after turning.
You will have to recheck toe, as changes in caster will affect the toe. Your camber should be fine.

Which strut rods did you go with?

I also believe that if you're doing a full alignment, you're better off getting as much caster as you can with the strut rods disconnected, and then fine tune/crank in additional with the rods.
