Also what differences are felt in straight line driving (freeway) and cornering, both positive and negative.

Fraggy, do you have the front tension struts and control arms? I don't see them in your sig. W/o camber plates, you can go for max camber in front, and still not get tire wear, according to most people on this board.

Increasing camber might increase steering effort a little. It's possible that setting for max camber will give up a little caster. It will increase front grip. Other than that I don't think you'll feel a difference. :-)
