Alignments

Angles setting the wheels in alignment angles of the wheels are calculated theoretically in the development of the car and adjusted during developmental testing. Parameters setting angles are provided and controlled by assembly of the car. Thus, the car leaves the assembly line is fully prepared for high-speed maneuverable ride at a certain curb weight. Over time, the factory adjustment violated. This is due to normal wear and tear suspension assemblies and parts of steering control, accompanied by a change initial size and an increase in play in the joints.

Themselves normative values of the angles the wheels (uuk) as mandatory values do not exist. These standards nobody has ever installed. There are, of course, the parameters of the manufacturers on a new car, which he must comply with Departure pipeline. Sometimes it may be given options for the car in service. But it's a whole model, rather than a specific machine, given its actual path, and especially roads that bore his fate, my dear.

AND another, we judge the angles of the wheels on the basis of a static picture when the car is stationary. But who said that in motion, acceleration, braking and maneuvering the vehicle, it does not change? When adjusting Alignments, we change the following angles: Caster is the angle at which the rotation axis is tilted wheel. The main purpose of having the caster is to obtain a self-centering steering system. Caster angle affects understeer during runup, braking and acceleration, as it tilts the chassis more or less depending on the angle of the caster.
