Just putting this here for a reference to look at when I bring my car in for allignment and to help anyone else that may read this in the future. Originally posted by Geezer

For most Foci (especially 00 to 05) the following specs work. For 06+ cars these specs also seem to work, but rear camber (per Ford), should not exceed -1.3 degrrees:

Front toe: .01 to .02 inches of "toe-out" but no more (zero toe if you have poly bushings)
Rear toe: .04 inches of "toe-in" (per side)
Front Camber: anything "within spec".... its non-adjustable.
Rear camber: -1.0 to -1.5 degrees (you can go less without problems but some negative camber tends to improve handling characteristics). More than -1.5 degrees and you start to promote inside edge tire wear especially if your toe setting exceeds what's recommended above.
If you can't wear it out, burn it off
