Advice 1: How to increase ground clearance in the Fields

To increase road clearance "Fields" is used the suspension lift and install the other wheels. Suspension of the cars Niva and Chevrolet-Niva lifted the same. Without loss of comfort and versatility for "Field" you can install a lift kit increase ground clearance by 50 mm. Additional installation of other tyre and wheel 235/75R15 or 235/70R16 gives a gain to 40 mm. In the result, ground clearance becomes equal to 250 mm reducer of the rear bridge and 445 mm for the rapids.
How to increase ground clearance in the Fields
You will need
  • Set lifevania suspensions for "Fields" of factory manufacturing. New tires with rims.
Instruction
1
Front suspension. To install washers under the lower mount of the suspension springs. Thereby created the necessary installation angle of the front spring. Between the upper lever and the ball bearing install the spacer washer, thereby relieving the lever. Swap the steering knuckle arms or change the mounting of the front stabilizer bar so that during maximum turning of the wheels of a rod rests against the stabilizer. If you wish to further tune the front suspension, change the shocks on the long stroke, change the springs, rubber spacers, CV joints anthers. After the Elevator repeat the full adjustment of the front suspension
2
Rear suspension. Install the new cups the rear springs. Their mount run on standard bolts on the top and on the mounting brackets for rear shocks. By the way, the attachment points of the rear dampers need to transfer up to 50 mm with the installation of the new brackets. In addition, make adjustable rod rear axle or just extend them. This is necessary in order to exclude jamming the d-pad. Jet thrust stress by using the area or weld the double. Panhard rod make the cut and install the regulatory coupling. Optionally, install a dedicated rear stabilizer Tekhnomaster" development VAZ, replace the shock absorbers on the long stroke.

In addition to these works, replace the brake hose on the longer, bleed the brake system, adjust the spool and adjust the bump stops the springs under the specifications of the new suspension. It is recommended to install rear cardan Chusovoi. When carrying out a lift the suspensions on the old or worn out car, make sure to install new CV joints. Installing steering knuckle with two ball bearings from the rear axle, eliminates the problem of their adjustments and increased wear of the CV joints when mounting wider and heavier wheels. When installing a wider and heavier tire change on new ball joints and pendulums. If you change the shock, at the same time reinforce their place of attachment. Rubber spacers in the suspension replace with polyurethane.

Advice 2 : How to increase the permeability Fields

Even such a recognized all-terrain vehicle as the "field" sometimes needs to be refined to its permeability to satisfy the owner. Increase the ground clearance of the car in a base complete set is not too large. Power suspension will protect the body from damage by shocks and help poddomkratit car if it is still stuck.
How to increase the permeability Fields
You will need
  • Lift kit, wheels of larger diameter, the elements of the power kit.
Instruction
1
To do not alter in suspension "Fields", just replace the rims and tires. In base the car is equipped with not the best option rubber as the main criterion when it is selected – low price.
Off-road choose a wide tire, with a large number of ribs on the tread. It is desirable that the sides were special fins called lugs.
2
If you need to increase the departure of the wheel, adjust the drives at the sizes of the tires, install a reinforced hub, double row bearing, and the hub of the stand of a special alloy, which will help to increase the departure of the wheel.
When you increase the diameter of the wheels, change the main couple of the bridges, increasing the gear ratio. To calculate a new gear ratio just for that, find a new diameter to the old wheel and multiply by the original gear ratio. From the available options main pairs, select the set that is closest in its characteristics.
3
If increasing clearance "Fields" by replacing the wheels is not enough, make the Elevator car suspension using special reducers under the the elements. To do this, purchase a lift-kit that for the front suspension is a set of washers fitted under the spring and the upper arm, in this case, swap the steering knuckle arms so they can move normally and do not touch other elements of the suspension. For the rear suspension there are special cups under the springs, which are mounted on top and bottom set brackets, that extend the shock absorber 5 cm

To protect the car from damage install the power kit. As a rule, it consists of front and rear bumper, my bumper and power thresholds.
Picking up reinforced bumpers, consider the possibility that you will have to raise it "Niva" with the help of a rack Jack. When selecting "." suscitavit that its primary function is not giving an aggressive appearance and a sewn spotlights and radiator. When traveling in the woods, install videotraining, which is a rope, stretched from the bumper to the top of the trunk. They will protect the windshield.

Advice 3 : How to strengthen the body in the Field

Niva remains the most popular SUV in the countries of the former USSR. But the high loads experienced by the vehicle on rough terrain, you can "lead" the body and then the operation of the vehicle will be difficult. In order to avoid this, it is better to strengthen it, giving the body greater rigidity.
How to strengthen the body in the Field
You will need
  • Sheet steel 3 mm thick, steel channel, cold rolled profile, welding machine
Instruction
1
Start with strengthening the front side members in places of fastening of shock-absorbers. They make some reinforcing plates made of sheet steel with a thickness of 3 mm. it is Better to weld overlays over the entire length of the spar. This will not only avoid cracks when hitting suspension, but will not allow the body to deform when towing the car, especially on the winch. Another weakness on the body "Fields" - the site of attachment of the gear box and junction boxes. You need to install the steel lining. When working keep in mind that these two nodes should not move relative to each other for normal operation of the intermediate shaft is located between them.
2
If you made a cutting of the wheel arches with the increase of departure and the thickness of the wheels, they must be boiled, because they are also the carrier element structure. This particularly applies to the rear arches.
Stress thresholds that will give the body additional rigidity. To do this, take steel cold-rolled profile 2.5 mm thick, cut it along the length of the sill, weld the bottom and close design metal sheet.
Additionally scald stops (glasses) of the rear dampers, it is also possible to strengthen the steel sheet. There is an increased load when driving on rough terrain.
Adjust the bumpers on the channels with oblique bumpers, privaris them to the spars. This will help to increase body rigidity. In addition, when towing or winch that can be installed on such a structure, the load is evenly distributed to both side rail, considerably reducing the chance of breakage.
3
Reinstall the bump stops and additional special arcs. They not only help to drop the car from different obstacles like young trees. Arc and bumpers are also elements of the framework, which will significantly increase body rigidity.
But get too carried away is not necessary, because increasing the weight of the car, the owner automatically increases the load on the engine and reduces its permeability. Therefore, in the amplification do not need to apply too thick and heavy steel profile.

Advice 4 : How to increase ground clearance on the "Field"

Niva is the most popular domestic SUV. This car attracts low price and practicality. Usually, Field to buy in order for this car to travel long distances on the road. So many of nivovodov the question arises, how to increase ground clearance on your SUV.
How to increase ground clearance on the "Field"
You will need
  • roulette;
  • - cotton gloves;
  • - new shock absorbers;
  • - set spacers;
  • - springs from Chevrolet Niva.
Instruction
1
Measure the value of clearance of your car. To do this, find a flat area. It is best to find a concrete slab. The value obtained compare with the factory. If it is less it means that either the previous owner made changes to the suspension, or the suspension is faulty. The reduction in clearance may be due to several reasons. For example, the cause may be a broken spring. Therefore, produce a diagnosis of the suspension of your Fields. Check the integrity of all of the springs. The shock absorbers should be no stains. If you find a broken spring or chipped, replace it with a new one In most cases, after eliminating such problems, the ground clearance increases by 5-7 cm.
2
Purchase an auto in the set of reducers. Its value varies from three to five thousand rubles. And sold sets of different heights. You will be able to choose the one that is most suitable to you. Installation of this kit is not very complicated. It can be produced in almost any garage with minimal tools. Before installation, make a General cleaning of your Fields. The fact that eventually almost every car accumulates a lot of unnecessary things. Comfortable motion, they practically do not interfere, however, add considerable weight, which creates additional load on the suspension. Because of this, the ground clearance of the car may be somewhat lower. It is also worth remembering that excessive weight leads to a faster wear of the springs.
3
Install shock absorbers from Chevrolet Niva. This is an updated analogue of the usual Russian Fields. that features a large number of improvements. In the Fields, Chevrolet upgraded suspension more. Therefore its installation will not only increase ground clearance, but will give better dynamic characteristics when driving. Think about the other choice of rims and tires. Drives higher radius with the right kind of tires can also significantly increase the clearance of the machine. Niva is a SUV, so it is necessary to choose high tire. Remember the elastic bands that are installed in the suspension. Over time, they become useless, promazyvaetsya that causes a decrease in clearance.
