In this section you can buy the ball joints for Lada NIVA 1600.
Why ball? To control the car, it is required that the front wheels can be rotated in the desired direction. A steering mechanism is used to precisely rotate the wheels, and a ball bearing is used to connect the rotary cam to the lever. The use of the ball joint of the frets allows the hub assembly to rotate about its axis and at the same time to have a flexible connection with the levers, which is very important for the operation of the suspension.
The structure of the ball joint. Shells of ball supports are of different shapes, but the structure and principle of their work are the same. Both the upper and lower ball bearings consist of: a finger with a thread (or groove) and a ball joint, a housing, a polymer clutch, a clamping washer and a cover. As well, the supports are of a collapsible and non-separable type. Previously, very often the repair of ball bearings was practiced, it consisted in replacing the plastic element. Such repairs restored the support of the former density of motion. But, this method of recovery did not restore the initial reliability of the ball mechanism, because the polymer element was replaced, and the finger remained old, and during the long operation of this hinge, it could form microcracks that could lead to the destruction of metal and create an emergency situation on the road. Modern ball bearings for the car, all less often are made with the use of a collapsible structure, and after failure, they must be replaced.
