DESCRIPTION - FRONT SUSPENSION
This vehicle has a gas pressurized MacPherson strut type front suspension design (Fig. 1). The front suspension includes the following components:
² Lower control arm
² Stabilizer bar
² Steering knuckle
² Strut assembly
For more information on the description and operation of an individual component, refer to the applicable component.
OPERATION - FRONT SUSPENSION
The front suspension allows each front wheel on a vehicle to adapt to different road surfaces and conditions without greatly affecting the opposite wheel and the ability to control the vehicle. Each side of the front suspension is allowed to pivot so the vehicle can be steered in the direction preferred. When a vehicle strikes a bump, the force is transferred through the hub, bearing, and knuckle, into the strut assembly to absorb the force and dampen it. During steering maneuvers, the strut assembly (through a pivot bearing in the upper strut mount) and steering knuckle (through the lower ball joint
mounted on the lower control arm) turn as an assembly.
WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS
WARNING: DO NOT REMOVE THE STRUT SHAFT NUT WHILE STRUT ASSEMBLY IS INSTALLED IN VEHICLE, OR BEFORE THE COIL SPRING IS COMPRESSED WITH A COMPRESSION TOOL. THE SPRING IS HELD UNDER HIGH PRESSURE.
CAUTION: Only frame contact hoisting equipment can be used on this vehicle. All vehicles have a fully independent rear suspension. The vehicles
cannot be hoisted using equipment designed to lift a vehicle by the rear axle. If this type of hoisting equipment is used, damage to rear suspension components will occur.
CAUTION: At no time when servicing a vehicle can a sheet metal screw, bolt, or other metal fastener be installed in the shock tower to take the place of an original plastic clip. It may come into contact with the strut or coil spring.
CAUTION: Wheel bearing damage will result if after loosening the hub nut, the vehicle is rolled on the ground or the weight of the vehicle is allowed to be
supported by the tires for a length of time.
STANDARD PROCEDURE - LUBRICATION
There are no serviceable lubrication points on the front suspension. The front lower ball joints have grease fittings which have had the head snapped off
by the manufacturer after they have been filled. This has been done to eliminate the possibility of damaging the non-vented seals. Grease will not leak from the broken grease fittings. The ball joints are sealed for life and require no maintenance.
CAUTION: No attempt should be made to replace the ball joint grease fitting with a new fitting, then filling the ball joint with grease. Damage to the grease seal can result.

HUB / BEARING
The wheel bearing and hub are pressed into the steering knuckle. (Refer to 2 - SUSPENSION/ FRONT/KNUCKLE - DESCRIPTION) OPERATION
The wheel bearing and hub are pressed into the steering knuckle. (Refer to 2 - SUSPENSION/ FRONT/KNUCKLE - OPERATION)
DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING - WHEEL BEARING AND HUB
The wheel bearing is designed for the life of the vehicle and requires no type of periodic maintenance. The following procedure may be used for diagnosing the condition of the wheel bearing and hub. With the wheel, disc brake caliper, and brake rotor removed, rotate the wheel hub. Any roughness or resistance to rotation may indicate dirt intrusion or a failed hub bearing. If the bearing exhibits any of these conditions during diagnosis, the hub bearing will require replacement. Do not attempt to disassemble the bearing for repair. If the wheel bearing is disassembled for any reason, it must be replaced.
Damaged bearing seals and the resulting excessive grease loss may also require bearing replacement. Moderate grease weapage from the bearing is considered normal and should not require replacement of the wheel bearing.
The wheel bearing and hub are pressed into the knuckle. (Refer to 2 - SUSPENSION/FRONT/ KNUCKLE - REMOVAL)
The wheel bearing and hub are pressed into the knuckle. (Refer to 2 - SUSPENSION/FRONT/ KNUCKLE - INSTALLATION)
The steering knuckle is a single casting with legs machined for attachment to the front strut assembly on the top, lower control arm ball joint on the bottom, and steering linkage on the trailing end (Fig. 1). The steering knuckle also has two machined abutments (rails) on the leading end casting to support and align the front disc brake caliper. The knuckle supports the wheel bearing and hub (Fig. 1). The wheel hub is pressed into a sealed-forlife
wheel bearing that is pressed into the steering knuckle. A retainer plate also holds the bearing in place. The hub supports the driveshaft outer constant
velocity (C/V) joint. Each is splined and meshes in the center of the hub. The outer C/V joint is retained to the hub using a nut. The nut is locked to the outer C/V stub shaft using a nut retainer and cotter pin. The wheel bearing is a Unit 1 type cartridge bearing that requires no maintenance. The wheel bearing can be serviced separately from the hub. The hub has five studs pressed into its flange.
The steering knuckle pivots with the strut assembly between the lower ball joint and the pivot bearing in the strut assembly. The steering gear outer tie rod end connects to the trailing end of each knuckle, allowing the vehicle to be steered. The center of the knuckle supports the hub, wheel bearing and axle shaft. The hub and wheel bearing work together. The wheel bearing has internal bearings that allow the hub to rotate with the driveshaft and the tire and wheel assembly. The hub’s five studs mount the tire and wheel to the vehicle.
DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING - STEERING KNUCKLE
The front suspension steering knuckle is not a repairable component of the front suspension. It must be replaced if found to be damaged in any way.
If it is determined that the steering knuckle is bent when servicing the vehicle, no attempt is to be made to straighten the steering knuckle.
NOTE: Before proceeding with this procedure, (Refer to 2 - SUSPENSION/FRONT - WARNING).
(1) Apply the brakes and hold in place.
(2) Raise the vehicle. (Refer to LUBRICATION & MAINTENANCE/HOISTING - STANDARD PROCEDURE).
(3) Remove the front tire and wheel assembly.
(Refer to 22 - TIRES/WHEELS - REMOVAL)
(4) Remove the cotter pin, lock nut and spring washer from the hub nut (Fig. 2).
(5) While the brakes are applied, loosen and remove the hub nut (Fig. 2).
(6) Release the brakes.
