2006 mustang contol arm swap

This weekend I will be attempting to upgrade uca and lcas, I went with adjustable upper and adjustable lowers (better to have and not need, than to need and not have). My car is not lowered, doesn't make a ton of HP, and isn't a daily driver. I am upgrading because the rear is unpredictable, and will go out sideways quickly. My question is after the swap what should my pinion angle be? I've seen posts that are older and want to make sure they still hold true at -2*

this is a well beaten path but I would love it hear some feedback that isn't 4 years old

I could be wrong, but I though -2 degrees was for drag launch. If the car is a daily driver, you might not want to go that aggressive. You would theoretically want to try to get as close to 0 as you can get.
