General information

Suspension bracket of forward wheels

1 — the Top support
2 — the Screw spring
3 — the Connecting bar
4 — the Shock-absorber
5 — Cross-section communication (the back cross-section lever)
6 — the Stabilizer of cross-section stability
7 — the Extension (the forward cross-section lever)
8 — Steering draft
9 — the Rotary fist
10 — the Amortization rack
11 — the Cross-piece
12 — the Steering mechanism

The forward suspension bracket in the form of triangular cross-section levers from each party has amortization racks of McPherson and the torsionny stabilizer of cross-section stability. As the third lever of a forward suspension bracket the steering draft connecting the steering mechanism to wheels serves.

Amortization racks consist of cylindrical screw springs, shock-absorbers in the form of a double pipe and the top support of the big size. The stabilizer does not participate in the direction of wheels, and through connecting bars is connected with amortization racks.

Optimum running characteristics and the minimum wear of tires it is reached only in that case when wheels occupy the correct situation. At the wrong wear of tires, and also at insufficient stability on the road it is necessary to make optical measurements and, if necessary, to adjust corners of installation of wheels.
