Rubber-metal hinges and rubber pads must be replaced in case of ruptures and one-sided bulging of the rubber, as well as when cutting their end surfaces

Suspensions on rubber parts are not allowed:

- signs of rubber aging;

- mechanical damage.

On rubber-metal hinges (silent blocks) are not allowed:

- signs of aging, cracks, one-sided bulging of the rubber mass;

- separation of the rubber array from the armature.

Replace defective parts.

Moving the car to the side:

- Different pressure in the tires of the front wheels

Tire pressure correct

- Big difference in caster angles on the right and left sides

Check for twisting of the front suspension beam or settlement of the front springs, wear of the bushing pins

- Big difference in the camber angles of the left and right wheels

Check for beam deflection or wear on pivots and bushings.

Fix the beam if it is bent.

- Different tightening of the front wheel hub bearings

Check and adjust wheel bearing tension

- Non-parallelism of the axes of the front and rear axles

Check the mutual position of the axles of the front and rear axles by measuring the distance between the centers of the wheels on the right and left sides.

If a difference is found, find the cause and fix it.

Wobbling of the front wheels:

- Wheel imbalance with complete tires

Replace or balance a wheel that is too unbalanced

- Increased wear in the steering rod joints

Replace worn joints

Accelerated lateral tread wear:

- Wrong wheel alignment

Check if the tie rod or steering link arms are bent or if there is any play in the tie rod joints.

Straighten bent parts, replace worn hinges.

Adjust wheel alignment.

Uneven tire tread wear:

- Large unbalance of the wheel with tire assembly

Change or balance a wheel

Knocks while moving

- Large kingpin axial play

Check the clearance between the upper knuckle boss and the beam boss.

Increase the gap to 0.15mm, no more, by installing an adjusting steel shim.

Replace thrust bearing if necessary.

- Radial play of the kingpin in the bushings

Replace kingpin and bushings

- Insufficient tightening of the front wheel hub bearings or destruction of the bearings

Adjust bearing tightening. Replace damaged bearings.

- Clearances in the conical joints of the tie rod pins

Tighten the pin nuts
