Negative caster. Why?

Is there any good reason for negtive caster in GM A bodyes? The repair manual specs 2 degrees negative but that doesn makes any sense. Oviously that was designed by engineers but I couldn`t find any reason for that. Any clues?

If you want to understand the mechanics of A-Body setup, the best guy I know to get it from is Mark Savitske at He also hangs out and is a sponsor at the Pro-Touring forum.
