29 A Tudor- Mustang II alignment

After losing my 1930 A Fordor (built over the course of 22 years) to what began as an engine fire, I am (six years later) completing the 29 A Tudor atop the same frame, complete with a Progressive Automotive Mustang II cross-member. The front suspension employs 11 inch Granada rotors (ECI), two inch dropped spindles from Speedway Motors, and manual steering. These are, of course, all new parts, but match what I used in the Fordor, except that the Fordor used stock height spindles. The rebuilt A uses radial tires front and rear. Power is supplied through a Dana 60 rear, TH 350 transmission, and a 30 over SBC 350 with a 4-71 Roots, 800 cfm AFB, AFR heads, and MSD 6AL ignition.

My local shop suggests using the alignment specs for stock 1974-48 Mustang II. Thoughts ? From reading other Mustang II IFS postings, there seems to be consensus on 1/8 inch toe-in and camber in a range of 1/2 +/- 3/4. Caster suggestions, however, are all over the map, from 1/8 up to 6 degrees.
