PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Remove a depreciation rack from the car.
2. Fix a rack of a back suspension bracket in a vice with soft sponges and, using special adaptation, squeeze a spring so that it departed from the top part. When using special device for compression of springs you watch that rounds of a spring were reliably taken and you make compression of a spring from the opposite sides. The spring has very big effort of compression therefore use only very reliable tool. Do not connect a spring by a wire at all.
3. Record a key a shock-absorber rod from a provorachivaniye and, using the second cap key, unscrew the central nut of fastening of a rod of the shock-absorber. Consistently remove from a shock-absorber rod the top support, the buffer, the top support of a spring, a spring, the protection cover, a rubber pro-rate and the lower support of a spring.
4. Assembly of a depreciation rack is made in the sequence, the return dismantling taking into account the next moments.
5. Establish a spring so that extreme rounds of a spring correctly settled down on support of a spring and were directed to the center of the car (see rice. The correct arrangement of the lower round of a spring in a spring nest).
6. Establish the top support of a depreciation rack so that the axis passing through the aligning fingers was parallel to an axis of the lower fastening of the shock-absorber (see rice. Arrangement of the top support of a depreciation rack). The aligning fingers (1) have to settle down from the outer side of the car.
