The car has a spring-loaded, semi-independent rear suspension with a crossbeam and hydraulic shock absorbers

The lower spring supports and brackets for mounting shock absorbers are welded to the rear suspension beam

Design features of the Hyundai Solaris rear suspension

The hubs of the rear wheels are attached to the longitudinal arms of the rear suspension with four bolts

Bushings are welded to the front of the beam, into which the silent blocks of fastening the beam to the body are pressed

The lower hinges of the two-way hydraulic shock absorbers are bolted to the brackets of the rear suspension beam.

The upper hinges of the shock absorbers are attached to the body

Possible malfunctions of the rear suspension and ways to eliminate

The cause of the malfunction is the method of elimination

Suspension noise and knocking when the car is moving:

The shock absorber is faulty - Replace the shock absorber in a pair

Loosening of the shock absorber attachment or wear of the shock absorber eye sleeve - Tighten the bolt with the nut of the lower shock absorber attachment or replace the bushings

Wear of the silentblocks of the longitudinal suspension arms - Replace the silentblocks

Sediment or spring breakage - Replace the springs

Wheel hub bearing failure - Replace the hub

Steering the car away from straight-line traffic:

Sediment or breakage of one of the springs - Replace the springs in a pair

Deformation of the longitudinal levers - Replace the rear suspension beam

Wear of the silentblocks of the longitudinal levers - Replace the silentblocks

Checking the condition of the rear suspension parts

Checks of the rear suspension parts should be carried out from the bottom of the car, preferably on a lift.

Find out if there are any cracks on the suspension parts or traces of hitting road obstacles or the body, deformation of the rear body parts at the attachment points of the nodes and suspension parts.

Check the condition of the rubber-metal hinges (silent blocks), suspension springs and shock absorbers.

Rubber-metal hinges and rubber parts must be replaced in case of ruptures and unilateral buckling of rubber, as well as when cutting their end surfaces.

On rubber suspension parts are not allowed:

- signs of aging of rubber;

- mechanical damage.

On rubber-metal hinges are not allowed:

- signs of aging, cracks;

- one-sided buckling of the rubber array.

Replace the defective parts.

Check if there is any mechanical damage (deformations, cracks, etc.) to the suspension elements.

Pay attention to the exhaust system. Extraneous knocks made by it are often mistaken for a knock in the rear suspension.

The use of non-standard parts or the breakage of the suspension elements of the muffler can cause a strong knock, especially when overgassing.

When checking, stop the engine, carefully inspect the exhaust system, check the reliability of the mounting and suspension of the muffler. Taking hold of the end of the exhaust pipe, shake the muffler up and down and from side to side – there should be no knocks.
