The rear suspension of the car is independent, multi-link (three transverse and one longitudinal lever on each side), spring-loaded, with shock absorbers and a stabilizer bar

Mazda rear suspension design 6

The convergence of the rear wheels is regulated by bolts securing the rear lower lever, made in one piece with the eccentrics

The camber angle of the rear wheels is set structurally and is not adjustable

By the camber angle, you can only control the condition of the rear suspension

Checking suspension parts

We install the car on a lift or an observation ditch

We inspect the suspension parts

We check the condition of rubber-metal hinges, rubber pads, the condition of suspension springs

Rubber-metal hinges and rubber pads need to be replaced in case of ruptures and unilateral buckling of rubber, as well as when cutting their end surfaces

Checking the details of the rear suspension Mazda 6

On rubber-metal hinges is not allowed:

- signs of aging, cracks;

- unilateral swelling of the rubber array

We check the absence of mechanical damage to the suspension elements

We inspect the rubber bushings of the upper and lower mounts of the shock absorber and shock absorbers

Liquid drips and sweating are not allowed on shock absorbers

We check the rubber-metal hinges (silent blocks) of the longitudinal levers of the rear suspension

Using the mounting blade, we check for the absence of backlash of the internal silent blocks of the rear lower levers and rear fists

Check the inner and outer silent blocks of the front lower levers

We also check the internal and external silent blocks of the upper levers of the rear suspension

By swinging the stabilizer bar up and down, we check for the absence of backlash of the stabilizer bar and the rubber cushions of the rod

Checking springs and compression buffers

We pay attention to the exhaust system. Extraneous knocks made by her are often mistaken for a knock in the rear suspension

Possible rear suspension malfunctions and solutions

Noise and knocks in the suspension when the car is moving

- the shock absorber is faulty

Replace the shock absorber

- loosening of the shock absorber attachment

Tighten the shock absorber mounting bolts

- wear of suspension arm silentblocks

Replace levers or silent blocks

- sediment or spring breakage

Replace the spring

- wheel hub bearing failure

Replace the bearing

Driving the car away from straight-line traffic

- unequal tire air pressure

Set the normal tire air pressure

- the camber angle is broken

Determine the cause of the camber angle violation and adjust the rear wheel mounting angles

- wheel tires have different wear or tread pattern

Replace the tires

- sediment or breakage of one of the springs

Replace the spring

- deformation of longitudinal levers

Replace the longitudinal levers

- wear of the silentblocks of the longitudinal levers

Replace the longitudinal levers

Increased or uneven tire tread wear

- tire air pressure does not correspond to the norm

Set the normal tire air pressure

- wheel installation parameters are violated

Eliminate the reasons for the violation of the wheel installation parameters and adjust the wheel installation angles

- car overload

Do not overload the vehicle

- wheel balancing is broken

Balance the wheels
