Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, Replacing The Flex / Giubo / Hardy Discs (Prop Shaft)

Noticed at a routine inspection that the prop shaft flex discs (also known as giubo or hardy discs) were showing quite some wear. After 17 years, that is to be expected. But to be honest, I thought they would have been replaced already.

Replaced them with Tedgum discs including new shiny bolts. Happy with the end result as I felt a more positive engage from the drivetrain. Job done!

Finally replaced the OEM brakes with fresh new Brembo Xtra Line Cross Drilled brake discs with Ferodo pads.

They look absolutely great with open style wheels, like the Monaco Mirabeau wheels.

Giant Talon 3 – 180mm front brake upgrade

Besloten om de voor- en achterkant een upgrade te geven m.b.t. de remmerij. Zowel voor als achter zal er een Avid HS1 geboorde remschijf opkomen. Remblokken worden t.z.t. vervangen, semi-metallic. Het uiteindelijke doel is om de Giant Root 2 (Tektro Auriga) te vervangen door een Shimano 515 remmenset (voor en achter), maar dat komt ergens na de vakantie. Om de 180mm schijf te gebruiken is een spacer nodig, die de remklauw verder naar buiten plaatst.
