Default camber setting

ive got a magnetic angle guage i could just stick to the rotor to check the camber, but whats the angle im looking for? id assume id want it to be a slight bit to the positive side, im mainly concerned with my drivers side axle that i just replaced, the passenger side seems fine, would they both use the same amount of camber? im thinking all i have to do is loosen the pinch bolt & then rotate that bushing with the hex head on it until i get the reading im wanting. i measured for toe off the rotors and that worked fine for me. i have put in new ball joints on my junkyard axle. the truck im doing it on is my '93

yes i did see that, but mine is a little newer than the truck they are showing specs for,('83-'91) didnt know if they would be the same for my '93 or if i should just try to go for a zero setting.

Book calls for +0.25° +/- 0.5° camber for my '94 (both sides). I like to set it about 0.5° simply to account for vehicle loading (which would be within the spec listed).
