Unfortunately I have stock suspension and my alignment specs are basically stock(0 front toe, rear camber unchanged) apart from the front camber which is -1 degree now (from stock which is 0). This makes the front more planted to the ground and makes the car want to oversteer more when braking or when liftin-off throttle mid-corner suddenly. I think with a lowered car and coilovers you need less camber (more close to 0) because the wheel travels less so you need less negative camber to compensate.
One piece of advice I got was to only change one setting at one, either toe or camber, front or rear, that way you can feel how it affects the driving. I do the alignment myself so this doesn't take money but it does take time, but till now I only changed the camber but I'm satisfied with my specs till now, since is a daily driver after all!
