Toyota RAV4>> Suspension bracket>> General information
The suspension bracket is a link between a body and wheels. Through it the forces influencing wheels are transferred to 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 a course of the car. On geometry of a suspension bracket and its rigidity depend possibility of movings of a body and reduction of angular fluctuations round longitudinal and cross-section axes of the car.
Forward suspension bracket — independent the McPherson type. It is characterized by compactness, small weight and bigger height of installation, and at the expense of 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 installation admissions.
Basic element of a suspension bracket is the amortization rack which combines in itself functions of directing and extinguishing devices of a suspension bracket.
The top part of a forward amortization rack fastens to a car body, and bottom is connected to a rotary fist. The rotary fist fastens via the spherical hinge to the bottom 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-section stability reduces body lists, and also influences characteristics of controllability of the car.
The back suspension bracket consists of the longitudinal lever, the top and bottom cross-section levers, a cylindrical spring and the shock-absorber from each party of the car. On release cars since 2001 the back stabilizer of cross-section stability is established.

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