What kind of accident? You mentioned you replaced the sub-frame, was it damaged? Was there uni-body (chassis) damage? Did the car have to go on a body rack for repairs? You didn't mention the condition of the struts and shocks. Are they original? If so how many miles on them? Do you have a printout of the alignment you had done? A Focus is VERY temperamental with regards to alignment. Being within spec is NOT good enough on these cars. Very precise settings are required and very few places will go out of their way to do it right unless you ask them including most dealerships.
