11.2. The service factor – geometry of the forward bridge
Correct «base position» forward wheels is turning point of, whether forward wheels on bends, on equal pieces or long rectilinear sites of highways obediently follow. Already strong "pushes" бордюрного a stone can "sensitively discompose" geometry of forward wheels. The beaten out hinges and rubber support or inadequate repair also make negative impact on dynamic properties. Therefore transfer visual survey of a running gear of the workshop having corresponding measuring equipment. The adjusted forward wheels, as well as the attentive driver, certainly, will go strictly on a trace. And, of course, when both forward tyres occur from one «шинной bakeries» and besides have identical protectors and the ordered pressure of air. Check up base and observe presence of following symptoms
Slantwise established steering wheel is first sign of the "warped" lobbies of wheels. Therefore always pay attention that at rectilinear movement and the steering wheel also should "stand" rectilinearly.
Whether forward wheels are co-ordinated at rectilinear movement with steering wheel position?
Whether you moves Mondeo on an equal site directly «without the appendix of hands»? Or it constantly changes a direction of movement that to the right, to the left?
Whether the steering wheel after an exit from turn "voluntary" in position for rectilinear movement comes back »?
Whether have identical deterioration forward tyres? Look at edges of tyres, whether they have identical wear tracks?
