..:: sleestak ::.. no, not off-hand, sorry. You could call an alignment shop and get them, though.

Shouldn't be a problem since I want the stock settings. But you don't happen to know them?

By nature, the car will like to wear at the insides of the wheels....more so in the rear than the fronts. From my experience, the fronts see the wear on the outside shoulders, from cornering. So as long as you are good about rotating them, you should be able to keep them relatively even.

On the front or on the back? At the front I see 0 camber. Not sure how it would chew the insides so badly. On the back I see a little negative camber, but not sure if that's stock.

stock SVT alignment settings?

I can't seem to get any decent hits on this subforum or on google. Basically, I can't find the specs that WD40 is referring to in this post: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...92&postcount=5

Is there such a thing as stock or factory settings for toe and camber on SVT Foci?

I'm taking my car in to get an alignment done next week, and would like to restore any misalignment back to ideal settings. Granted ideal might not quite be stock, but because I'm learning to autocross, I figure that the best place to start (suspension wise) is with what all those SVE engineers dialed into it.
