We remove the lever. Install the upper arm in reverse order.

For the correct installation of the silent blocks, the nuts of the adjusting bolts must be tightened only after the suspension spring has been compressed.

To do this, remove the shock absorber (it will be convenient to control spring compression through the holes for its installation).

Place the wheel and lower the vehicle to the ground, or lower the vehicle onto the support placed under the lower arm.

The spring is considered sufficiently compressed if the "E" dimension between the lower end of the lower arm (in the area of the shock absorber attachment) and the upper end of the subframe shock absorber cup is 319–321 mm.

Finally tighten the nuts of the lever adjusting bolts.

Install the shock absorber.

Check and, if necessary, adjust the wheel alignment angles (article - Adjustment of the front wheel alignment angles GAZelle Next)

Replacing the lower arm of the front suspension

Preparatory operations are the same as when replacing the upper arm.

We remove the shock absorber of the front suspension (article - Replacing the shock absorber and stabilizer of the front suspension GAZelle Next)

We compress the spring with a special device.

A lot of force is required to compress the suspension spring.

Therefore, do not use accessories designed for compressing springs of cars, or products of questionable quality.

If such devices break or slide off, you can get serious injuries!

The best fit for this job is a long tension screw attachment that fits inside the spring instead of the shock absorber removed.

Loosen the drawbar carefully until the arm is fully lowered and the spring unfolded.

Remove the drawbar and spring with spacers.

Loosen the rear lever shaft nut completely.

Remove the axle from the cross member bush and remove the lower arm

Install the lower arm and all removed parts (except for the shock absorber, since then it will be convenient to control spring compression through the holes for its installation) in the reverse order of removal.

For the correct installation of the silent blocks, the rear nut of the lower arm axle and the nuts of the adjusting bolts of the upper arm must be tightened only after the suspension spring has been compressed.

To do this, you can install the wheel and lower the car to the ground or lower the car on a support installed under the lower arm.

The spring is considered sufficiently compressed if the "E" dimension between the lower end of the lower arm (in the area of ​​the shock absorber mount) and the upper end of the subframe shock absorber cup is 319–321 mm.

Finally, tighten the lower arm axle rear nut and upper arm adjusting bolt nuts.

Install the shock absorber (article - Replacing the shock absorber and the front suspension stabilizer GAZelle Next).

Check and, if necessary, adjust the wheel alignment angles. (article Adjusting the angles of the front wheels GAZelle Next)
