Using a Hunter 600, doing my own alighnment......

Hey guys, i recently bent a rim which im replacing, and am gettin new tires anyway (damn chicago w/ friggin potholes) anyway, im doing my own alignment w/ a hunter 600 which my highschool autoshop bought about 2 years ago. is that machine pretty new and accurate w/ the svt? i noticed that it will do an alignment for a "zx3 body style" but will the svt suspension and 17 inch wheels throw off the alignment readings? or will it be pretty head on?

Moved to "Wheels, Tires, Brakes & Suspension"
Set front toe at .02-.04° toe out, each side. (Total toe at .10° toe out max)
Set rear toe at .02° toe in each side. (Total toe at .04° toe in max)
If you can get any camber adjustment out of the rear, get the least amount possible.
-1.5° and less is a good setting for tire wear.

The machine should have svt focus specific alignment specs.

Is that a good alignment for a non svt zx3 with the svt suspension put on?
