1.1a Elements of a forward suspension bracket and steering (the Galant model is shown, the Colt, Lancer, Mirage, Tredia and Cordia models are similar)
1. Spherical hinge
2. Stabilizer of cross stability
3. Fixing arm
4. Steering mechanism
5. Half shaft
6. Suspension bracket lever
7. Rack of a suspension bracket and spring
8. Cover



1.1b Elements of a forward suspension bracket and steering (Precis)
1. Stabilizer of cross stability
2. Rack of a suspension bracket and spring
3. Suspension bracket lever
4. Spherical hinge
5. Tip of steering draft
6. Steering draft
7. Cover of the steering mechanism
8. Steering mechanism


1. The forward suspension bracket uses MacPherson racks (1.1a and 1.1b). Rotary pins are established on suspension bracket levers. The stabilizer of cross stability installed on a cross-piece of a forward suspension bracket and connecting suspension bracket levers reduces a car inclination at turns.

1.2a Elements of a back suspension bracket (the Galant model is shown, the Colt, Lancer, Mirage, Tredia and Cordia models are similar)
1. Longitudinal lever
2. Stabilizer of cross stability
3. Spring



1.2b Elements of a back suspension bracket (Precis)
1. Longitudinal lever
2. Stabilizer of cross stability
3. Spring


2. The back suspension bracket uses longitudinal levers or the torsion axis (1.2a and 1.2b). On some models the stabilizer of cross stability is installed.
3. The steering mechanism of rack type is installed on a back wall of a motive compartment and puts steering drafts which are connected to rotary pins in action. The steering column is safety and it develops in case of accident.
