Question Front Axle Alignment ´62 Gal??

Hi Folks - which alignment Specs would you take if your Car is Power Steered and got new American Classics 215/75/R14 wheels on it?

I think the Specs in the Manual won´t fit.

At this time the self center ecffect in Cornering is not enough. Before I replaced the Bushings at the front axle - especially the Idler Arm Bushings the Steering wheel moved like a Steering Wheel on a boat without the Captain....
So the Car found his way for itself out of the Curves into a straight line...but this was before I replaced all...made Laser alignment procedure and the Gal don´t slide on the track and the drivin´line is very straight.... but the Curve behaviour is bad - in my opinion...

Only a Caster thing? What´s your Opinion? Or less grease anywhere?
I´m afraid I don´t know that.... do I now have to align the steering box too - or does this have nothing to do with the bad cornering effect?? perhaps a Power Steering Valve thing? Where lies the Rabbit in the pepper???
