What is a Hunter alignment? I'm having an extremely tough time finding a skilled tech to align my newly lowered box. I live in deep South Texas so we're very limited out here.

It is one of the state-of-the-art wheel alignment systems out there for getting an accurate alignment.

Rob, I'm learning all about lowered boxsters in eager anticipation of doing it to mine in just a few weeks when more parts come in.

You'll never get enough toe in to make specs on a lowered boxster without adjustable toe arms in the rear. I don't know if you have them or not...

If you go to Hunter's web site, they have a listing of who owns their machines. It would be well worth a trip to San Antonio or El Paso (depending on where you live in the deep south part of Texas) to find a shop with one of these machines. Or, find a Porsche performance shop that does alignments and they'll know what to do. The problem is that the performance shops are going to be double that of an indy with a Hunter machine.

I couldn't find any service facility listings (only sales reps) on the site. I'm hoping theres one in the Rio Grande Valley or Corpus Christi. I'd hate to use 700 miles (San Antonioto) just to get it aligned.

Rob, call the Hunter rep for the Corpus area and ask him. His name is Scott Covey and his number is 210-649-2804. Be sure to tell him you want a shop that doesn't work on pickup trucks and has a staff that understands sports car suspensions. :D

I called him and he said in a confused tone " I aint never herd of no Porsha pickup" :eek:

I hope you said, "That's because they don't make one."

... at least he called it a "porsha" and not a "porsh"

Did he not have any phone numbers of shops to pass along?

BTW, you should contact the local PCA group representative in your area and they will certainly know of good indy shops that do four wheel alignments on "Porshas"
