honestly, he doesn't know the Focus like we know it. we have millions of motoring miles experience in these cars. he doesn't. You NEED to set your rear toe to zero.

also set the front out to to the minimum allowed ( i like 1/16" to 1/8" out)

also "On spec" can still mean a crap alignment. you need to have him align to our custom specs.
Dont waste your money on a generic " on spec" alignment, where you'll need to replace tires again. if he wont do a custom alignment, find another shop.

good luck.
