I bought new BF Goodrich TA radials for my 69 Camaro and thought it would be good to recheck the alignment. I managed to get the following:

FRONT

CASTER:
left + 3.5 deg.
right + 4.1 deg.

CAMBER:
left - 0.6 deg.
right -0.3 deg.
(With me sitting in the car the left camber went to -0.5 deg. and right went to -0.4 deg.)

TOE:
left and right both + 0.05 deg for a total toe of +0.10 deg.

REAR

CAMBER
left -0.3 deg.
right 0.0 deg.

TOE
left +0.15 deg.
right - 010 deg.
Total +0.05 deg.

THRUST ANGLE:

- 0.1 deg.

I think the caster, camber and toe settings are pretty good but I have no clue on what an acceptable thrust angle is? Any comments on these settings would be appreciated.

I would like to see caster at 5 deg positive but maybe you can't get there if you have stock A arms.
Thrust angle is the difference between where the front tires are steered vs rear tires.

0.1 deg is .045" toe on a 26" tire, its steering left if a negative number. Should not be a problem.

Thanks David. Yes, stock A arms and 26.6 inch tires. I was actually surprised I was able to get that much caster. I had no idea what the acceptable range on thrust angle was, so good to know it is OK.
