1.20. Check of a forward suspension bracket and a steering
1. Lift a forward part of the car and reliably fix on supports.
2. Visually examine противопылевые covers of spherical hinges and protective covers реечной steering transfer on presence of cracks, attritions and ageing. Any deterioration of these covers will lead to loss of lubricant and the water and dirt hit, coming to an end with fast deterioration of spherical hinges or steering transfer.
3. Check up hoses of the mechanism of the amplifier of a steering on истирание or ageing, and also pipes and connections of hoses on leaks. Also check up on leak signs under pressure protective rubber covers of steering transfer which specify in damage of consolidation of a steering.

4. Lift the car a jack, take a wheel hands in position of 6 and 12 hours and try to shake it in a vertical plane. Very small люфт wheels it is admissible, but if люфт enough big, the further check is necessary to establish a source. Continue to swing a wheel while the assistant presses a foot brake. If люфт it is eliminated or it is considerably reduced that, it is probable that nave bearings are damaged. If люфт it is still considerable with the pressed brake, means there is a deterioration in connection and suspension bracket fastening.
5. Now take a wheel in position 9 and 3 hours and try to shake it in a horizontal plane. Presence люфта in a horizontal plane can be caused deterioration of the bearing of a nave or spherical hinges of steering draught. If external or internal spherical шарнирное connection is worn out, люфт will be obvious.
