Toyota RAV4>> Suspension bracket>> General information
The suspension bracket is a link between a body and wheels. Forces influencing wheels are transmitted through it on a body. The suspension bracket serves for decrease in dynamic loadings, reduction of fluctuations of a body, mitigation of blows of wheels about roughness of the road, provides stability and smoothness of the course of the car. Depend on geometry of a suspension bracket and its rigidity a possibility of movements of a body and reduction of angular fluctuations around longitudinal and cross axes of the car.
Forward suspension bracket — independent the McPherson type. It is characterized by compactness, a small lot and bigger height of installation, and due to increase in distance between support structural tension in suspension bracket elements decreases. One of the main advantages of a suspension bracket of this type — relative tolerance to admissions of installation.
Basic element of a suspension bracket is the depreciation rack which combines in itself functions of the directing and extinguishing suspension bracket devices.
The top part of a forward depreciation rack fastens to a car body, and lower is connected to a rotary fist. The rotary fist fastens via the spherical hinge to the lower lever of a forward suspension bracket. To a rotary fist the support and a brake disk with a nave fastens.
The forward stabilizer of cross stability reduces body lists, and also exerts impact on characteristics of controllability of the car.
The back suspension bracket consists of the longitudinal lever, the top and lower cross levers, a cylindrical spring and the shock-absorber from each party of the car. On release cars since 2001 the back stabilizer of cross stability is installed.

       PREVENTION
It is strictly forbidden to perform welding and leveling works on suspension bracket elements. Surely you make replacement of all самоконтрящихся nuts, and also bolts with corrosion traces.
