The rear suspension of the car is dependent, on two longitudinal semi-elliptical two-leaf springs with additional springs (springs), with hydraulic telescopic shock absorbers

The springs have plastic spacers between the sheets.

The front end of the spring is attached through a rubber-metal hinge to the bracket on the frame, and the rear end to the shackle.

The spring is attached to the rear axle using stepladders.

Shock absorbers are designed to dampen the vibrations of the rear suspension.

The upper parts of the rods protruding from the shock absorbers are protected from dirt by rubber caps.

The upper ends of the shock absorbers through rubber bushings are attached to a bracket mounted on the frame, and the lower ends are attached to a bracket on the rear axle beam.

To reduce roll in corners and improve handling, an anti-roll bar is used in the suspension structure.

The middle part of the U-shaped circular section of the stabilizer is attached to the car frame through struts and rubber pads.

The ends of the rod are connected to the rear axle housing through brackets with bushings.

Possible rear suspension malfunctions

Cause of malfunction (Remedy)

Springs creak:

- Wear of plastic anti-squeak gaskets between the leaf springs, rubber gaskets under the clamps or rubber bushings

Replace worn parts

Car body roll:

- Draft of one spring or breakage of spring sheets

Replace leaf spring or defective sheets

Displacement of the rear wheel track relative to the front wheels when driving in a straight line:

- Draft or breakage of springs

Replace the springs

- Long-term operation of an overloaded vehicle

Replace the springs

Metal knock on suspension breakdown:

- Loss of efficiency of shock absorbers

Replace shock absorbers

- Destruction of the rubber bumper of the rear suspension or additional upper bumper

Replace defective parts

Decreased efficiency of the shock absorber:

- Wear of shock absorber bushings

Replace shock absorbers

- Leakage of fluid from the shock absorber

Replace shock absorber

Checking the condition of the rear suspension parts

Inspecting the lower and upper rubber-metal hinges of the shock absorbers

Inspecting the rubber-metal hinges of the front ends of the springs

Конструкция задней подвески Газель НекстКонструкция задней подвески Газель Некст

We inspect the rubber-metal hinges of the rear ends of the springs

We inspect the cushions of additional springs

Examining the Compression Stroke Buffers

We check the tightening of the nuts of the ladders of the springs

We check the tightening of threaded connections and the condition of the rubber joints of the rear suspension stabilizer

We inspect the shock absorbers. If the escaping oil covers more than half of the shock absorber housing, it is considered defective.

Pay attention to the exhaust system. Extraneous knocks are often mistaken for knocks in the rear suspension.

The use of non-standard parts or the breakage of the suspension elements of the muffler can cause knocking, especially during overgassing.

To check, stop the engine, inspect the exhaust system, check the reliability of fastening and suspension of the exhaust system.

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