The goal of corner weighting is to get the cross weights (the sum of the left front and right rear, and the sum of the right front and left rear) as close to 50% as possible to ensure similar performance in left and right turns. That is the theory, at least.
In your case, you would lower the left front by a small amount in an attempt to transfer some weight to the right rear, which would also have a small effect on the other corners. I assume that your Alfetta is stock and doesn't have adjustable rear coilover springs, which limits your adjustability.
I am not a fan of going overboard with fine-tuning the corner balance of a street car with rubber bushings, as the friction of those bushings affects the results (spherical bushings are better for this). Plus, you often end up adjusting the ride height of some corners too much in an attempt to get the cross weights perfect, which means that the suspension geometry is slightly different side to side, which kind of defeats the purpose of corner balancing in the first place.
Real race cars corner balance by moving weight around the car!
