Default Is The Rear Toe Alignment Suppose To Be Like This???

I went the other day to get my truck aligned, just curious of what the alignment specs were and asked the guys to give me a print out of my alignment and I noticed my rear toe is off. Is this normal for my 05 FX4? Since I'm putting up the specs, how does the rest of alignment look to you? Here is a pic:

your rear cannot be off. Its a solid axle. Unless the axle is bent, its fine

What I may end up doing is taking it to the Ford Dealer I got it from and have them compare there alignment with Tire Kingdoms alignment and find out if the rear axle has to be replace. Any other thoughts?

do exactly what u said. your rear axle shouldn't be out of wack. if it really is, it can probably be one of your axle shafts.

does the back end track behind the front? or does it dog track to one side? if it dog tracks, then something is wrong. if it's straight, it's all good.

The only way to find out is to have someone follow behind you while driving and see if your truck rolls sideways down the road. you cant really tell by driving it yourself without someone eyeballing from behind. The report indicates that its tracking sideways or dog tracking as they say...
