Rear suspension kit.

Howdy listers,
A ways back there was some talk on the list regarding a factory kit to modify the rear wheel setup on Focus' that have the severe tire wear
problem. Does anyone know of the Ford Canada part number for these kits?
I have a 2001 SE wagon from hell.
Thanks.

How have you been having it aligned? Only a decent 4 wheel laser aligner should be used.
Possibly sounds like one of the wishbones is bent, or the subframe is loose one side and is moving around, however with both you'd have very strange handling characteristics...
My rear tyres wear perfectly evenly, so if they're not, there's a problem.
