Alignment Question

Hello Everyone,

First post here and I have a question. First I've read about all the alignment problems and solutions related to the Focus. In this case, it's a 2002 Focus ZTS; mother in law's car.

It ate a set of tires way too quickly so after reading some posts, I took it to an alignment shop and had them give me a printout. Unfortunately I can't scan it but here's a summary of the printout:

Left Front - Camber -1*, Caster 2.4*, Toe -.78*
R. Front - Camber -1.4*, Caster 2.8*, Toe -.82*

L Rear - Camber -2*, Toe .19*
R Rear - Camber -2.3*, Toe -1.04*

No wonder it was eating tires All 4 are shot

Now the questions:

The toe is WAY off, can it be corrected without having to go with some aftermarket thing?

The rear camber worries me - posts I've read said ideally it should be -1.4*
Is it worth my time to install the aftermarket camber bolts or can I let this slide?

Just want to put this issue to rest because my mother in law is on a fixed income but I want this done right.

Thanks and glad to be a member of the board.
