For most Foci (especially 00 to 05) the following specs work. For 06+ cars these specs also seem to work, but rear camber (per Ford), should not exceed -1.3 degrrees:
Front toe: .01 to .02 inches of "toe-out" but no more (zero toe if you have poly bushings)
Rear toe: .04 inches of "toe-in" (per side)
Front Camber: anything "within spec".... its non-adjustable.
Rear camber: -1.0 to -1.5 degrees (you can go less without problems but some negative camber tends to improve handling characteristics). More than -1.5 degrees and you start to promote inside edge tire wear especially if your toe setting exceeds what's recommended above.
FWIW, my rear camber is -1.9 degrees. Its a little excessive but I did (and still do) not feel like buying camber arms or bolts. I have had no excessive wear. This does not apply to all people since we are all running different styles/sizes of wheels and tires but I just don't want you to be scared if you hit this number.
