Default Good alignment shop in KW

I just completed putting Ohlins coil overs and adjustable rear toe arms in my 996, car has been lowered about 1" and now the alignment needs to be done. Years ago I took my 928 to Dettmer Tire in Guelph as they have a drive on Hunter alignment rack that doesn't unload the suspension. Thought since that was some time ago, I would ask if anyone knows a good alignment shop in the KW area?

I brought the Carrera 4 to Straight-Line Auto in Breslau and they did a great job. They do all the alignment work for Furtmair Porsche in Kitchener, or so I've been told.

Thanks Pete, went to talk to the guys at Straight Line, they are like 10 min from my house. They seemed like a straight up bunch. Car booked for Wednesday, I will let everyone know how it goes.

Do they have the kinematic toe tools to align a 993?

Not sure. Had my car done there yesterday and it came out great. They said they have done a ton of Porsche's and do all the work for Uli at Furtmair,. I know Uli works on lots of air cooled cars, so I assume they would be able to do a 993.
