Alignment Specs

Where might I find alignment specs for a 98 Boxster? I'm going to have it checked soon, and wanted to see if the shop shows the same specs in their books. I don't want to have to worry whether it's right or not.

I just went to my dealer and asked for the alignment spec for my car (RoW M030). They printed it out for me and sent me on my way.

All good info. Thank you! I had it aligned yesterday and the mechanic made a few adjustments on toe and camber to bring it all within the "computer's specs" which I observed as he did the work. I have one concern on the drivers side rear wheel. The camber was adjusted to -1.8 which was at the very top end of the acceptable range according to the computer. He could not adjust it to put it in the middle. He said the eccentric cam was already at it's highest point and recommended that I have that part replaced. He said he thinks it is worn. I couldn't tell by looking at it though. I started thinking maybe my struts are worn. Is this guy an idiot or could he be right? Also my caster was 7 and 6.9. I think the spec is 8, but wondering if those struts are indicating wear. My car has 60k miles and thinking I should replace my struts and have it all realigned again??
