Thoughts on alignment 84 944?

So I'm replacing a tie rod and will be having the front end aligned. I put new front struts and rear shocks on it and the tie rod is due to a tiny felt slack on the left one. Any thoughts on using the stock front alignment vs a minor tweak? Pure road going car - not interested in track operation.

Hi I dialled out the understeer on my 924S with a bigger rear swaybar but left the front settings
stock. Worked ok on hillclimbs

those are good numbers.

to get all four wheels to break away at the same time...on the front, 2.3 degrees caster, 0.5 degrees negative camber, zero toe pushed and 38psi with 225s. rear..1.1 negative and a strings width of toe in at 34 psi running 245s.

it took about 1000 miles to find the neutral sweet spot.
