We need to know what your current specs are before we can determine whether its strictly a camber problem or not. The front end of a Focus tolerates more camber than the rear does. Most front tire wear problems are associated with "toe" issues. In other words, you can run a fair amount of camber up front without excessive tire wear, if the toe is set correctly. On an 03 you want your camber to be anywhere within the spec range (and that's pretty broad). On a car with rubber bushings you want a smidgen of toe-out (.01 to.02 inches...but no more!). If you have poly bushings up front, set it at zero toe.
