Mornings to all from the @mimigiannisworkshop ! The rear brakediscs of the #starbo are already out and now we’re gonna clean all this place well and place the new ones. Let’s do this ✊🏻 #ep82#GT#starletgt#brakes#ebc#idworkz
Toyota 4-Runner was in for an alignment check.
We installed an @oldmanemu4x4 lift previously(2000km ago) and we always include an alignment check with our installation package.
The coil springs will settle over time altering ride-height. This will cause the wheel alignment to go out of spec and lead to tire wear.
Always ask your installation facility if they include this service, if they don’t maybe reconsider your choice.
Take care and happy trails
Front and rear rotors for the GTS, damn these things are huge... and usually expensive AF but with help from Matt at @racebrakessydney I got pads and rotors at an amazing price #gts#hsv#brakes#6piston#rotors

Late nights. As tiring as all of this is, we feel blessed that we are doing something in an industry and community we love ❤️ Here we’re working on a rotor for a SEMA build that we’ve been fortunate to be a part of
The multi link suspension is seen as the best independent system for a production car because it offers the best compromises between handling and space efficiency and comfort and handling. Moreover, because such a suspension allows a vehicle to flex more, it's also a very good solution for off road driving.
The multi link is also advantageous for the designer who can alter one parameter in the suspension without influencing the entire assembly. This is a major difference compared to a double wishbone suspension.
As with all good things, the multi-link system is costly and complex to design and manufacture. In fact, the suspension's geometry needs to be checked with design analysis software.
Each of the arms has a spherical joint or rubber bushing at each end, causing them to “work” in tension and compression and not in bending.
As noted here, the arms are joined at the top and bottom of the spindle. When this spindle turns for steering, it actually alters suspension's geometry by torquing all suspension arms. Don't worry though, as the suspension's pivot systems are designed to allow this.
Multi-link arrangements are used on both the front and the rear suspensions, but the former replaces a lateral arm with a tie-rod that connects the rack or steering box to the wheel hub.
Since there isn't a single multi-link setup in the industry, all big names have their own design. Some BMW setups look like the letter Z and sport four links, while Honda's multi-link is like a double wishbone suspension but with an added fifth control arm. Audi A4's front suspension also has four links and it's extremely similar to the double wishbone one.
The Hyundai Genesis sport front and rear 5-link systems. The front suspension has two upper links, two lower links, and a tie-rod, which in the rear suspension, there are two upper links, a lower link, a trailing link, and a toe control link. .
Another close up shot of our @vankulture collaboration series available soon thru @vankulture . This time this is the backside of the rotor face. Yes, we know this side doesn’t even get “seen” but we do this for 100% completeness and for even brake pad wear and performance and not only for looks. If you’re paying the money, might as well get it done! 😎

"I don't trust my 08' R32 to just anyone. I have taken it to Maple Hill religiously for whatever it needed. Until recently when it came time to have the timing chains and guides changed, I decided to give the Flying Dog Garage a chance. They came in WAY under what Maple Hill had quoted me for the job. They did a great job, provided me with a loaner and everything was done right, the first time!⠀
Since then I've had to have a couple other issues dealt with. Each time the issues were handled professionally, with OEM parts, in a timely manner and also at a cost that Maple Hill simply couldn't come close to. As long as this is the service I continue to get, I'll never need to take my car anywhere else." - Troy C.⠀
