Corners of installation of forward wheels

Corners of installation of wheels considerably influence stability of the car, wear of tires and fuel consumption. Distinguish some corners of installation of wheels.

Disorder is an inclination of a wheel in the vertical plane relatively the average line of the car. It can be positive if wheels are inclined outside, or negative if wheels are inclined inside. The disorder corner, generally influences uniformity of wear of tires of forward wheels. If disorder of one wheel positive, and another negative, withdraws the car aside at movement on a straight line.

Convergence – lateral distance between wheels. The positive convergence means that wheels are in front located more closely to each other, than behind, at measurement at height of an average point of a wheel. The negative convergence means that wheels in front are at bigger distance from each other, than behind.

At the expense of corners of disorder and a cross-section inclination of an axis of turn of a point of a contact of wheels with the road settle down closer to an axis of a rotary fist. It supports so-called "a running in shoulder". The "running in shoulder" less, the driving is easier. Also blows from roughness of a covering are less transferred to a steering.

Corner of a longitudinal inclination of an axis of turn. The axis concerning which there is a wheel turn, takes place in space so that its lower part is inclined forward. Such corner of a longitudinal inclination is called as positive. At positive value of a corner self-return of a wheel to average situation after turn improves.

Check and adjustment of corners of installation of wheels is necessary for making at station in connection with complexity of the used equipment.

1. For adjustment of a convergence weaken bolts of clips (on one bolt on spherical hinges of steering drafts and to one bolt on each steering draft) and turn an adjusting pin on each steering draft on identical number of turns and in the same direction (And – bolts of clips, In – an adjusting pin).
2. Turn of pins carry out on 45 ° at one time then check a convergence.
