*The Hunter toe-in specs are measured in inches, while the factory specs are measured in degrees.

NOTE: The significant discrepancy between the Hunter REAR toe specs and the factory's: as you might expect, the factory specs are closer (if I recall correctly) to the service manual.

I believe the factory alignment unit is also a Hunter. Notice also that these specs represent the initial alignment performed on the assembly line. My understanding is that this is true for both Civilian Hummers and Military HMMWVs (although I only witnessed HMMWVs being aligned). Also, I believe I was told that a second check (or possibly re-alignment) is performed at the Civilian Hummer finish-out facility.
