Suspension bracket and steering
Forward suspension bracket
The forward suspension bracket has an independent design. Rotary fists are connected by the top and lower levers of a suspension bracket (operating levers) by means of spherical support. The opposite ends pribolchena levers to a frame. The stabilizer of cross stability reducing rocking and a car list on turns is included in the regular package.
Instead of screw springs the torsion bars which fasten to the top levers of a suspension bracket are used.
Back suspension bracket
The back suspension bracket is organized by means of couple of screw springs, two telescopic shock-absorbers, four levers (two lower and two top) and the jet bar connecting the left end of the bridge to a beam of the bearing frame. The bar of the stabilizer of cross resistance of a pribolchen to assembly of the back bridge also fastens to a car frame by means of two racks (address an illustration above).
The considered models are equipped with the hydrostrengthened steering transfer of rack type connected to rotary fists by means of two steering drafts. The case of the mechanism fastens to a cross beam.
Often in the course of service of components of a suspension bracket and the steering drive it is necessary to face fixture resistant to an otdavaniye. By Prikipaniye of elements of fixture it is connected with the fact that they are constantly subject to external influences, are in contact with water, dirt, a soot and the other substances promoting corrosion development. For the purpose of simplification of the procedure of an otdavaniye of its such "stuck" fixture it is necessary to impregnate with plentiful amount of the getting oil beforehand. Cleaning of open carving parts of fixture a rigid wire brush also promotes simplification of an otdavaniye of the rusted nuts. Sometimes, in especially hard cases, for the otpuskaniye which "stuck" bolts/nuts it is possible to use a drift. The drift rests against the region a bolt nut/head vent, then sharp blows with the hammer are struck to its opposite end. You watch that the drift did not break, try not to damage inexact blows a carving. Quite effective way is also warming up of fixture resistant to an otdavaniye and a torch of the blowtorch or a gas torch surrounding it component surfaces though authors of this manual also do not recommend to resort without extreme need to such technology in view of its potential danger connected with a possibility of ignition and risk of receiving burns. Different extenders, collars and pipe nozzles on them are intended for increase in torque at an otpuskaniye of fixture. However, you remember that it is not necessary to use such intensifying devices complete with the drive equipped with "graggers" – the risk of failure of the ratchet mechanism is too high. Sometimes the "stuck" fixture begins to give in after previously slightly it is tightened clockwise. All fixture which otpuskaniye demanded application of extraordinary measures at assembly is subject to replacement!
As procedures of service of components of a suspension bracket are performed under the car, it is necessary to think in advance of opportunities of lifting the vehicle and its fixing in the lifted situation (prepare a reliable jack and props).
