The rear suspension is spring-loaded, semi-independent, with a transverse beam and hydraulic shock absorbers

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

Arrangement of rear suspension elements: 1, 9 - trailing arms of the rear suspension; 2, 8 - upper spring pads; 3, 7 - rubber-metal hinges (silent blocks) of trailing arms; 4, 6 - rear suspension shock absorbers; 5 - rear suspension beam; 10, 17 - rear suspension springs; 11, 16 - lower spring pads; 12, 15 - lower spring supports; 13, 14 - shock absorber covers

The rear wheel hubs are attached to the rear trailing arms with four bolts

In front, bushings are welded to the beam, into which silent blocks for fastening the beam to the body are pressed

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

The upper shock absorber pivots are attached to the body

Possible malfunctions of the rear suspension and solutions

Cause of malfunction Remedy

Noise and knock of the suspension when the car is moving:

Shock absorber defective - Replace shock absorber as a pair

Loose or worn shock absorber lug bushing - Tighten shock absorber lower mounting bolt and nut or replace bushings

Worn trailing arm bushings - Replace bushings

Spring settling or breaking - Replace springs

Wheel hub bearing failure - Replace hub

Moving the car away from straight ahead:

Settlement or breakage of one of the springs - Replace the springs in pairs

Trailing arms warped - Replace rear suspension beam

Worn trailing arm bushings - Replace bushings

Checking the condition of the rear suspension parts

Rear suspension parts should be checked from below the vehicle, preferably on a lift.

Find out if there are any cracks on the suspension parts or traces of rubbing against road obstacles or the body, deformation of the tailgate parts at the attachment points of the suspension units and parts.

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

Rubber-metal hinges and rubber parts must be replaced in case of ruptures and one-sided bulging of the rubber, as well as when cutting their end surfaces.

Suspensions on rubber parts are not allowed:

  • – signs of rubber aging;
  • - mechanical damage.

On rubber-metal hinges are not allowed:

  • - signs of aging, cracks;
  • – one-sided buckling of the rubber array.

Replace defective parts.

Check for mechanical damage (deformations, cracks, etc.) of the suspension elements.

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

The use of non-standard parts or a break in the silencer suspension elements can cause a strong knock, especially when re-gassing.

When checking, stop the engine, carefully inspect the exhaust system, check the reliability of the mounting and suspension of the muffler.

Holding the end of the exhaust pipe, shake the muffler up and down and from side to side - there should be no knocks.
