It's hard to give an exact answer on this. It depends on where you are mounting the links. With a Clod you dont have to worry about pinion angle, but you want to make sure you have the caster right for the steering. I would set it up to have the axle positioned at 0 caster or slight negative caster, that will give the best steering performance.
