Default Gd sedan alignment

I have a bugeye that Ive put sti genome struts/springs on, Hotchkis 25mm hollow bar up front, all new joints around, and plan to put a 24mm solid or a 25hollow in the rear(both with solid end links). I plan to autox the car at least. What kind of alignment specs would be best for the type of setup I have? I have camber bolts in the rear but nothing like plates or anything. Id like something more aggressive but still dailyable

Go for about -1.8deg upwards of -2.0 of camber front and rear, and toe as close to 0.00 as possible. Anything more than -2.5 deg of camber will cause tire wear, though not as much as if you had 0.1deg of toe... -2.0 is a good number to hit in regards to camber.

When lowered, I think you can get that in the rear with camber bolts. Up front, I don't think so. You may want to try a 2nd camber bolt in addition to the factory bolt, or a tophat of some type. You could also slot your struts too, for more camber. You have options.

You'll want a 1/2 to a full degree more negative camber up front than in the rear. Slotting the lower hole in the front strut lets you add camber until the tires rub on the strut (while an aftermarket camber bolt is weaker and will not get you as far). So it depends on your tire size and offset but -3 degrees would not be unreasonable, and will help on an auto-x course. But for daily driving keep it closer to -2.
