Angry wheel alignment

Does anyone have the setting for wheel alignment? Its not in the owners manual, I tried calling the Porsche Dealer, but the nice serviceman stated he couldn't give me the settings because that would be giving business away.

thanks. now the problem is, there is no adjustment for camber in mine. Apparenty in 97, the camber settings were fixed. So i have to buy an adjustable upper-strat plate. I don't really know what this is.

Sorry, that's the settings for a '00 model. I'm sure the '97 is probably different.

If you want to get them, go to www.alldatadiy.com and get a membership for the '97 model. It's only $25/year and well worth it.

thanks for the help...i was thinking, my car already has 80k miles on it, and still has the original struts...should i just replace the ones i have now with ones that could be adjusted?
