front end alignment
Hi, Scooting here.

Went in to have the 40 aligned by new shop, Big O tires.
On their computer, they pulled up specs for 1940 Ford and swore
that stock number was the correct thing to do.

Now my 40 lost it's I beam axle and wishbones long ago. Currently I have
a Mustang II front end with the strut arms. So my question: What should I
set Camber, Caster, Toe to? They use a lazier Hunter machine and are
working off the rear wheels for a 4 wheel alignment? Is there a rule of thumb
or a set of workable numbers that I can give them? Advice?

Lots of people have been down this road before, so fill me in.
