Alignments/Hunter and HawkEye™
Here at Master Auto Service, we use state-of-the-art equipment. The Hunter’s HawkEye™ High Definition Digital Imaging Wheel Alignment uses four precision cameras to measure the position and orientation of targets mounted on each wheel of your car. The aligner computer uses the information to calculate your car’s current alignment measurements and compress them to the car’s manufacturer’s (O.E.M) specifications.
HawkEye is a trademark of Hunter Engineering Company.
