Check of a condition and reliability of fastening of components of the chassis, suspension bracket and steering drive


  1. To wear or damage of components of a suspension bracket or a steering drive can point such symptoms, as excessive rocking of the car at movement on the rough road or during commission of turns, loss of the course stability, the raised level of vibrations, jamming of a steering wheel, etc.
  2. For an assessment of a condition of shock-absorbers press down one of car corners, - at a corner otpuskaniye the body should come back to a starting position, making no more than one-two fluctuations. Listen to a scratch and the other extraneous noise published by a suspension bracket at oscillating motions of a body. Excessive quantity of raskachivaniye of a body at an otpuskaniye of the pressed corner, no less than refusal of its return to a starting position, testify to need of replacement of shock-absorbers. Operating in a similar manner, serially check each of four shock-absorbers.
  3. Hang out the car over the earth.
  4. Attentively examine a frame and suspension bracket elements on existence of signs of deformations and other mechanical damages.
  5. Check reliability of a tightening of fixture.

In total самоконтрящийся the fixture after an otpuskaniye is subject to replacement without fail!

  1. Grasp bottom edge of a wheel and pull it forward-back, - existence люфта a brake board of rather cross-section lever of a suspension bracket, testifies to excessive wear of a spherical support. Grasp for the end of the cross-section lever and pull it up-down, - presence люфта the lever of rather rotary fist also indicates need of careful check of a condition of a spherical support, - operating in a similar manner estimate a condition of both spherical support of each of rotary fists. Visually estimate a condition of boots of spherical support. In case of need make replacement, - after replacement of spherical support do not forget to drive away the car in a specialized workshop on check/correction of corners of installation of wheels.

To replace spherical support it is better in a set.

  1. Estimate degree of wear of rubber components of a suspension bracket and a steering drive. Ask the assistant повращать a steering wheel and visually estimate size люфта a steering drive. Try to establish the reason of a taking place weak point, make necessary regenerative repair, or replace defective components.
  2. Manually rotating forward wheels, try to define aurally a condition of wheel bearings, make sure of absence люфта at rotation of wheels. Grasp a wheel in points on 12 and at 6 o'clock and pull it in the axial plane, - existence of a little appreciable free wheeling testifies to weakening of a pretightness of wheel bearings.
