Model: JOH Vision 2000 (Made in Solon Ohio)
This unit came out of a local autobody repair shop and is approximately 11 years old. This four wheel alignment machine allows users to easily and professionally align suspension AND steering components. ALL NECESSARY PAPERWORK (MANUAL, WARRANTY, OPERATION, ETC) INCLUDED
Suspension and steering alignment is often confused with "wheel alignment" which only involves fine tuning some of the basic front end adjustments such as caster, camber, and toe. Steering and suspension alignments on the other hand ALSO includes locating steering and suspension components to the vehicle.
Most basic wheel alignments cost $75 or more, and comprehensive suspension and steering alignments usually run $180 or more. This machine does both, allowing you to add alignment services to your company's customer service offerings, perfect suspension setups for racing applications, or just save money by doing it yourself.
Vision 2000 patent pending copyrighted software allows you to analyze: bent strut towers, shifted cradle, and bump steer distortion of the rack and pinion to 1 mm. Utilizing computer laser technology, the versatility of the machine enables it to be used as measuring system. The system establishes visual laser centerline, vertical and horizontal datum planes and reference to "0" control points at all four torque boxes.
All on-car measuring components are cordless and can be run for 10 hours between recharges or battery replacement (Standard D Size Batteries)
NO CALIBRATION REQUIRED! FAST SET UP - TAKES LESS THAN 10 MINUTES.
Each computerized laser head is calibrated at the factory. Each "Power On" process performs automatic self-calibration and systems check within 7 seconds. No time is required by technician to calibrate unit!
COMPUTERIZED AND LASER ACCURACY
Accuracy to .01 degree for all measured angles. All readings are correct for precision measurements.
CONTINUOUS READOUT ON LASER HEAD AND REMOTE UNIT
Changes in adjustments can be seen immediately by technician on remote while under the vehicle. Technician does not have to come out from under the vehicle to read changes in adjustments.
No need to dedicate an entire bay. You may opt to wheel the unit or leave it behind and just take the cordless laser heads to the vehicle. The wheel clamps, laser heads, targets, steering wheel holder, brake depressor and manuals are contained in an enclosed 16 ga. steel cabinet.
Electronic wheel run out takes just a few seconds. If error is excessive, display on head flashes to alert the technician.
SINGLE SET UP FOR CASTER, CAIVIBER, TOE, SAI. INCLUDED ANGLE, SETBACK AND FOUR WHEEL TRACKING.
All angle readings are obtained and displayed on each head and hand held remote. No need to reference from head to monitoring device, or a display on a computer screen.
OUICK CASTER, SAI AND INCLUDED ANGLE
One 10 degree arc in and one L0 degree arc out (total 20 degree swing) gives you caster, SAI and included angle in seconds.
ESTABLISH VISUAL LASER CENTERLINE
Establishes centerline with precise laser accuracy. A visible laser line is established to allow the technician to measure strut tower, lower ball joints, front and rear axle positions.
SHIFTED CRADLE ANALYSIS
A primary step in aligning most unibody and front wheel drive vehicles is to establish the cradle position. The Vision 2000 detects if the cradle shifted during a collision and precisely measures the problem.
FOUR WHEEL TRACKING & ALIGNMENT TO THE CHASSIS AND/OR EACH OTHER
A true four wheel alignment must start with the rear wheels being correct. The vehicle and the four wheels are referenced to the torque boxes. This allows for a precision four wheel alignment to the chassis, centerline and to each other. If the rear position is not in a true centerline of thrust, and cannot be adjusted or corrected, the system is designed to referenced wheel to wheel and do a "Thrust Line" alignment.

Actually it came out of Harden Autobody in Mayfield. My dad does autobody there and he bought it off them when they remodeled the service bays and upgraded their equipment.
He lives in Chardon and has been using it in his shop for the last several years. Except now he has an airplane taking up the whole shop and he needs to make room and get rid of some other toys... Some kind of a too many toys clause in his marriage contract or something
JUST AN FYI: I will be on vacation from 6-28 until 7-11, so I probably wont be able to get back to your questions and definitely wont be able to ship anything until I get back.
If you know you definitely want something, post a response indicating such and I’ll try to figure out some kind of first-come-first-serve “dibs” system or something…
