"Certified" doesn't mean much when it comes to techs. Every shop is different. Hope you get it figured out. The focus camber curve is designed to have increasing negative camber in bump.

I had an "SVT certified" Ford dealer do the timing belt on my 03, they got the timing wrong three times. I asked them if they'd let me help after the second time. I printed our the directions for setting timing after round 3 and left them on the seat. Wolla, timing was correct.

Dealers have nothing to lose if they do something wrong. So many customers and cars being bought / worked on that one customer won't hurt them.

Can't say the same for people that own their own shops.

Brent's work has aligned my car better than belle tire or ford ever has. Brent did my car

Somehow an installation error. I don't even know how that is possible.
