While every car will be different, turn the camber bolts toward the center of the car. There is an arrow on the bolt head. Set it at about a 45 degree angle pointing upward. (1:30 or 10:30 poistion depending whether you inserted the bolt from the front or rear of the upper control arm bolt hole). This was the position that gave us about 1.3 degrees of negative chamber. Then get over to the alignment rack and make sure to tell them you installed the bolts. I went out and actually showed them where they were. I also painted the arrows bright yellow so they couldn't miss them. I recommend not more than -1.5 degrees of camber and keeping rear toe to the minimum allowable.
