I would run -3 to -5 degrees camber on the right side. You adjust the the camber by moving the top of the strut. If your unable to get the amount of adjustment, you can find a thunderbird lower control arm. They are longer, and bolt right up. Or buy some caster/ camber plates. I like 1/8 to 3/8 toe out. Turn your steering wheel an 1/8in. to the right and the right will be toed out an 1/8 in. What I'm saying is there is no particular side that is toed. As far as spring weights. Cant tell you. Depends on your weights, percentages, etc.

you can loosen up your 3 bolts on the top of the strut and push the strut in a little it will lean the top of your tire in it will help a little it dont go in to much but it may help you
