FWIW here is what I did. . Front you can only adjust toe, go for zero or very slight toe-in. Rear try to match the camber in front (whatever it is) but no more than -1 to -1.5 deg each side. Toe in about .2 degrees total.

This is what I set my car at and it feels pretty good. Was only able to get -1 to -1.2 deg neg camber in front but I have Koni/Eibach and not as low as you. You can supposedly pull the locating pin in the strut hat and get another -0.5 deg or so in front, have not done that yet.

So summary: ideally you want zero total toe in front, whatever camber. Match camber in rear up to a degree or so and some more toe in for stability.
