Camber and Toe Settings

Now that my project truck (see photo) is running reliably I am moving into some new areas of inspection/repair. Last night I did a quick DIY check of the camber and toe. I used the floor leveling/linoleum tiles/strings method.

If I did it right, then what I found was:
.7* NEGATIVE camber (top of wheel leaning IN), .3* toe IN.

And what I think the factory specs are is:
.25* POSITIVE camber, .1* toe IN.

Do I have the right values for factory specs (1996 C1500 XCab)?
Is there any reason to set it up different than factory?

Thanks!
