What kind of elevator is suitable for the 2121 series?
Elevator machines themselves in professional circles are divided into body and suspension. The body, accordingly, is designed to lift the body, when stands are placed under it, the hose is refined, etc. Such tuning is simple enough, but it is not suitable for Niva 21213, 21214 or 2121, as these machines do not have a frame. Frame structures can be found on the Niva 2329, but only on the rear suspension. Therefore, the body lift Niva 21214 only by own strength is unlikely. Suspension lifting Niva is considered more attractive for increasing the passableness of the car, since it raises the entire car, it makes it possible to put wheels of a certain diameter without cutting arches. It is assumed that if a suspension lift is made at 6 cm, then it is possible to put the wheels 29 inches without pain. They will quietly fit in the existing arches, which is enough for the minimum "charge" of the car after the Niva 21214 lift was made by own hands. In order to put extreme 33 inch wheels, you need to cut the arches and make tuning of the suspension, because one arch cut only slightly increases the ground clearance and geometric patency. At the same time cutting arches 21214 with their own hands without changing the suspension has the advantages in that it is possible to get rid of rusted elements, do not disrupt the work of the suspension, and the CV joints will have a shorter period of operation only due to increased loads.
What does an installed lift provide?
Front elevation of the front suspension gives an increase in the distance to the surface from the front only. But this is enough to prevent squatting on the beam, since the front of the machine accounts for about 65% of its total mass, and it also makes it possible to pass back. The area of the "apple" on the back of the bridge is small, so the rear axle in the ridge can be easily pulled off by the efforts of the transfer. Lifting allows improving geometric patency by increasing the angles of exit and entry on models 2131,2121,21213, 21214 and reducing radii in the part of transverse and longitudinal patency. However, Niva's lift of such a plan, carried out in-house or in the service station, significantly reduces the service life of internal CV joints and factory anthers. Usually this problem is solved by replacing the internal anthers on the CV joints with the outer ones and lowering the RPM by 1 cm, which makes it possible to reduce the angle of operation of the CVV of the Niva 2121 or another model.
Lift kit on the Niva: theory and practice
The theory of this operation is based on the fact that the car's bridge stands on a reactive rod for lateral stability and two longitudinal levers. The vertical movement of the bridge is limited upwards to the cushions of the bumpers and downwards - shock absorbers. The length and power of the springs at the lift of the Niva 2121 machine should be selected and installed so as not to disturb the balance in this system. For this purpose, professionals, carrying out the Niva 21214 lift with their own hands, transfer the mounting platforms, shock absorbers and springs to a verified equal distance. Experience shows that not every amateur will get an elevator 21214 alone just because of the imbalance. The Niva 21214 elevator is practically an installation on the front of the shock absorbers with a large travel, additional spacers for ball bearings (put from below), springs from Niva Chevrolet. On the rear axle of the Niva 21214 car, reinforcement is made for reinforcement, and an A-shaped lever is made of a square profile so that the back of the machine is symmetrical and well supported. The lever is often made from the lower suspension from the VAZ 2108 and secured to the body by two bolts from the upper links of the rear axle and to the bridge through the ball joint to the landing. In specialized stores you can buy a kit on the Niva, manufactured at the factory with a guarantee. For example, a stocking for the rear axle will cost 12-14 thousand rubles and will allow the Niva 21213 car to avoid curvatures in the area of the standard rear axle in conditions of bad roads with increased loading. It is carried out using special technology, which makes it possible to increase strength without additional weighting. Together with it, when tuning the Niva with your own hands, you can put reinforced lower bars and an adjustable cross bar for the rear axle.
