Corners of installation of forward wheels (geometry of a forward suspension bracket and steering drive)

For check and adjustment of geometry of a forward suspension bracket special knowledge and the equipment are required.

Lying within qualification of the average amateur mechanic, check of convergence of forward wheels is unique. Originators of this Management recommend to address for performance described below adjustments to address to specialists of dealer office of the company manufacturer of the car.

Before starting performance of adjustments carefully check a condition of components of a steering drive, and installation of a pretightness of stupichny bearings. Estimate a condition of spherical hinges, springs and suspension bracket fixture. Execute necessary repair.

Check protectors of tires of forward wheels on existence of signs of non-uniform wear as on nature of wear often allows to draw quite certain conclusions on a condition of components of a running gear of the car (see. The section devoted to diagnostics of malfunctions of wheels at the beginning of the Management). Replace defective and worn-out tires.

During check performance the car should be completely unloaded that means existence in a tank of normal amount of fuel. Pressure of a rating of tires should correspond to norms (see size tables and adjustments at the end of the Management).

Corners of cross-section and longitudinal inclinations of an axis of turn of a wheel

Corners cross-section and longitudinal (выбег) inclinations of an axis of turn of a wheel are exposed at manufacturer and adjustment are not subject. Any changes of these parameters speak about wear or damage of components of a suspension bracket.

Disorder

The disorder corner also is established on production and is not subject to adjustment. Any its changes should be regarded as a sign of wear or damage of components of a suspension bracket.

Some workshops specializing on adjustment of geometry of a suspension bracket of all-wheel drive cars undertake performance of correction of corners of inclinations of an axis of turn of wheels and disorder by installation of adjusting washers, ekstsentrikovy bearings or special wedges. Originators of this Management recommend before starting replacement of components of a running gear to consult at experts of one of such workshops.

Convergence

Check and adjustment

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Park the car on an equal horizontal platform. To Poddomkratta a car front also establish it on props.
  2. Serially rotating both lobbies of a wheel, carry out chalk the line on a protector of their tires, it is desirable as it is possible closer to the center.
  3. Lower the car on the earth and establish wheels in rectilinear situation.
  4. Carry out chalk the central lines of both wheels approximately to 20 ÷ 25 cm over the earth ahead of a suspension bracket nave.
  5. Get between wheels at level of labels a measured bar suitable on length. Write down distance between centers tires at level of the central labels.
  6. Holding wheels in rectilinear situation, give a ride to the car forward so that carried out before a label again appeared at height of 20 ÷ 25 cm over the earth, but this time behind naves of wheels.
  7. Repeat measurement distance between centers tires at level of labels.
  8. The result of the first measurement should differ from the second on the size stipulated by norms (see size tables and adjustments at the end of the Management).
  9. In case of need adjustments weaken collars of both tips of connecting steering draft.
  10. Adjust convergence by rotation of a pipe of a bar of draft.
  11. Tighten collars of tips, without changing the provision of a pipe of a bar.
  12. Repeat procedure of check of convergence.
