Upper control arm mounting 1986

Hello all, I recently purchased an 86 corvette front for my 1954 chevy truck. I don't know a whole lot about vettes which is my I'm here seeking some help. My question is what are the 4 holes for on the crossmeber for the upper control arm. I know obviously they are for mounting it but I need to know specifically what the different settings are for. Thank you

Shims go on the bolts between the arm and the cross member to adjust the caster and camber

Thank you for your reply... I had actually just figured out what I needed right before reading this post. I am seeing 4 holes. Two slotted holes exactly like the holes the control Arm bolt in but about an inch lower. They are the holes where the crossmember bolted to the c4 frame! I was thinking maybe they were different adjustment for some reason because I had never seen the suspension bolted in to anything.
