front end alignment specs

I don't have my Bentley on me, but, what are factory specs for 79 SC alignment (front and back). I am getting an alignment soon, and would like to set everything slightly more aggressive than stock.

I am considering -0.5 front camber, -1.0 rear with the front and rear set to 0 toe. Will this make the front way to darty on the street? Maybe 1/32 toe in on the front would be more appropriate, but I hate scrubbing the tires in the parking lot.

I believe the rear is -1.0 factory spec, and have worn nice and even on my last set of tires.

Yes, I did a search, and everyone does it differently. The car will be 90% street.

Thanks, imcarthur!

So, if the front is spec'd at 0 degrees camber and the rear at -1, should I increase both by .5, making the front -0.5 and the rear -1.5? I am leaning toward setting the front and rear toe to 0, but will this make the car to darty? I like to drive, so I don't mind keeping at least one hand on the wheel.
