Geometry Fine Adjustments....


Recommended Posts

Now then as a few of us on here use Tony Wheels-in-motion for our alignments I thought I would post up a little warning to all that do......

Just got back from Tony's, excellent service as usual, but one thing I must remind you all about is the fine tune of the Geo....

WHAT EVER YOU DO DONT FORGET TO GET YOUR FINE TUNE DONE!!!111 :excl::excl::excl:

It's free and is vital to ensuring you dont waste all that hard effort Tony has put in to set up your geo.

I never did get round to getting my fine tune done after the geo was first done by Tony back in October last year.... the result.... 1 new tyre required for the o/r/f !

This could have been avoided if I had bothered to get the fine tune done!....

You live and learn, then die and forget it... but somewhere in between, please remember to get them fine tunes done after the geo... the're free and are pretty vital to seeing the geo correct!

I never did get my fine tune done by Tony as I soon had coilovers fitted afterwards. It's now too low for his cameras to fit. :crybaby: I must get it done elsewhere.

I have heard / read lots of times from Tony and customers how important the fine tune is. Plus its free and so is the coffee :D :winky:

It is vital for the IS200..... I bet new members are thinking 'whats this fine-tune lark' :duh: Facts are the IS200/300 historicaly needs major corrections on the initial Geometry... After 2000 miles the car is re-measured and 'fine-tuned' back to the recovary positions at £0 cost.... if you miss this then the tyres may wear! The reason the 'fine-tune' is so evident is becouse i am the only person .....seemingly in the UK/World that offers this?

Please understand this reply is not an advert... wim has operated in the same visible fashion here for two years without any financial gain.... All i trade is a 'hand on heart' desire to help in this area!

I am currently looking to get a Geo set up done but only after the new wheels and wheel bearing are on. Problem is that I am in NI and I don't know anywere who is competent enough to do this and are able to fine tune my setup. I know that if I had some figures to use as guidelines I could get somebody to set the car up to those figures.

I would appreciate if someone or a few people could post their figures here so I could have a look and maybe use them to adapt some figures of my own.

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
