Aligment Specifications

Does anyone have the alignment specs for a 99 f-350 4x4 crew cab SRW? I have an old laser alignment setup and I was going to check it, but I'm not sure what the toe should be. Or does any one have any recommended settings that may be better then the factory settings? Thanks in advance.

2009 SRW 4x4

Dealer image shows 2008-2011 F350 4x4 SRW being the same.

My local dealer has my truck and is doing an alignment. It's never been done in 85000 miles. They are replacing the steering box and recommended an alignment. Since, it had never been done, I decided to do it.
After checking, he says they need me to buy a shim kit in order to get the alignment into specs. The truck is completely stock. Says the shim kit is $80 PLUS installation.

He sent me a pic of the current alignment:

FRONT
CAMBER: L 0.4 R 0.2 * in the green range
CASTER: L 4.1 R 3.9 * both in red as alignment range is up to 3.9 deg
TOE: L 0.17 R 0.19 * left is green and right is red as range is up to .18 deg


All values positive.

Is already charging me $180 for the alignment which I think is ridiculous. Why would a stock engine need a shim kit to align it?
