GENERAL INFORMATION

Forward suspension bracket independent, Mac Pherson type. Consists of two racks of a suspension bracket, two lower cross levers and the cross stabilizer which ends also carry out a role of jet levers. Each rack contains a screw spring, coaxial with the telescopic shock-absorber.

The convergence is a distance between a forward and back part of forward wheels. This corner usually positive as from round the corner an inclination of a wheel (disorder) and resistance to swing of a wheel seek to be developed outside.

The tilt angle of a wheel and longitudinal tilt angle of an axis of turn reduce transfer of blows and vibration from roughnesses of the road by steering. The tilt angle of a wheel is a corner on which the wheel deviates the vertical plane. The longitudinal tilt angle of an axis of turn is a corner on which the rack of a forward suspension bracket is inclined that has significant effect at the movement on a straight line.

Shock-absorbers

Shock-absorbers hydraulic telescopic bilateral action also make the lower part of racks of a suspension bracket.

Brand: Motorcraft.

Stabilizer

The cross stabilizer is connected in a middle part to a body by means of two plugs. Shoulders of the stabilizer are connected to the lower cross levers of a suspension bracket with the help самоконтрящихся nuts.

Diameter of the lever of the stabilizer: 27 mm.

Naves of forward wheels

Each nave is located on two conic bearings installed with a tightness.
