Alignment settings


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I just recently upgraded the suspension on my 01 Boxster by going to H & R sport springs and the front and rear sway bars from the Boxster S. Obviously I need an alignment. I am also getting 19" rims to go with the upgrade. My question is twofold.

One, should I get the alignment after the wheels go on or before?

Two, what should the new alignment settings be if they are going to differ from stock?

The specs on the wheels are below...

WHEEL SIZE 19X8.5 ET45/ 19X10.5 ET52

BOLT PATTERN 5X130

TIRE SIZE INCLUDED IN PACKAGE Toyo 235/35R19 FF & 315/25R19 RR

Also, I'm thinking I may need a minimum of 5mm spacers front and rear. Anyone know where I can get these with the longer bolts? I know suncoast has a package but I'd like to source them locally in Canada.

Doesn't matter when you get the alignment (before or after the wheels). Wheels don't affect alignment.

I will be shocked if those wheels fit. The fronts you may be OK, but the rears, a 315 is way wide to fit on a Boxster. GOod luck...

wow 315/25'S? I hope they don't rub & watch out for those potholes!

so H&R dropped it about an inch? it shouldnt really matter like john V said but I would get it done after my new wheels r put on.

w/ ET45 u probably will be fine on the front. Did u see my topic-set of new wheels came in, there r some discussion goin on related to spacers/longer bolts.
