Alignment specs?

I installed 5100 leveling shocks yesterday on my '10 FX4 Screw. I obviously need an alignment.

Do I want it aligned to factory specs again, or do I want it slightly different? What are the factory specs? Anybody know? If the Camber is not 0 on these things from factory, I think 0 is better for my future mods, which include wheel spacers, and 35's.

For those of you who may not know, the lower control arm is bolted through slots, allowing for major adjustment.

Apparently, google is my friend after all. I found this....

The 2010 Ford F-150 4X4 (Except the SVT Raptor)
# The ideal caster settings are +3.8 degrees for the front left wheel and +4.2 degrees for the front right wheel but each wheel can range by one degree in either direction, with a cross tolerance of 0.75 degrees. The ideal camber settings are -0.2 degrees for the front left wheel and -0.4 degrees for the front right wheel but each wheel can range by 0.75 degrees in either direction, with a cross tolerance of 0.75 degrees. The ideal setting for the toe-in is +0.2 degrees but it can range by 0.2 degrees in either direction.

My question still stands though. Do I want to ask for a 0 Camber, at least on the drivers side. If the guy swings it the other direction of tolerance, and gives me .95 left , and 1.15 right, I got a bad feeling about what I can expect from tire wear, especially with a pushed out wheel. I'm thinking 0 is best for the new rubber.
