Mondeo ford wagon car (1997), rear wheels bend


Hi Ajayi:
If you click on this link you will see a diagram of this suspension
http://pictures.topspeed.com/IMG/crop/200701/2007-ford-focus-2_600x0w.jpg
It appears that this is a front wheel drive vehicle with independent rear suspension.
I don't know exactly what you mean by "bend". Perhaps you could give some more information if I have not answered your concern.
Cheers.

Susspension set up for Motorcross bikes


When I need to set up a motorcross bikes suspension I set all the settings (both rebound & compression) to the middle of the range on both the front suspension & the rear suspension

Now, measure the distance from the inside of the rear mudguard and the top of the rear tyre & note the distance.

Now repeat with the rider seated in position and note the difference,

This value should be 20mm. If not adjust rear spring pre-load to correct.

Now, measure the distance from the inside of the front mudguard and the top of the front tyre & note the distance.

Now repeat with the rider seated in position and note the difference,

This value should be 15mm. If not adjust front spring pre-load to correct.(if adjustable).

This gives you your starting point for the fine tuning with the dampening adjustments to suit the riders preferances.

Having trouble setting my suspension on my yz the sag is set cant get the rest to balence out for me im bout 150lbs does anyone noe a good setting for that weight?


In general you want to set sag for around 25-30% of the total suspension travel. Most dirt bikes are around 300mm of travel so set your sag (race sag) at around 85-90mm. Once you have done that, check the sag (static sag) without rider. It should be around 5% or so. If the static sag is more than 5% your spring is too hard. If it's less than 5% or zero then your spring is too light. This applies to both front and rear suspension.

These setting's don't have to be exact but it will definitely get you in the ballpark and help your bike to be balanced between front and rear. Also when you check race sag, you need to be in your natural riding position standing on the pegs wearing all your riding gear.

That car has an independant rear suspension that has either been mis adjusted or something is broken. These rears have to be aligned just like the front suspension.

Tax disc where to fit/rear suspension pressure setting, 1 & 2 up


I cant help with tax disc, but I can help with the setting of the suspension. The ideal setting for the suspension is to set it so the front and back drop together. If the back is too stiff and the suspension compresses in a corner the front is more prone to breaking loose causing the worst kind of slide . If the front is too hard and the suspension drops in a corner the rear end is more prone to breaking loose. This is not as bad losing grip on the front end, but if word gets out nobody will ride with you as a passenger ever again. Set both front and rear shocks near maximum pressure. Now sitting on the bike with it loaded the way you intend to ride bounce on the seat causing the suspension to drop. Now bleed air out of the front or rear shocks until both the front end and back end of the bike drop together. This is your stiffest safe ride setting. If you start with no pressure in the system and add air until the bike drops with front and back in unison, this will be your softest safe riding setting. Riding single or double requires two different settings. This is how racers set up sport bikes for extreme riding.On a Goldwing you will only need the correct settings for extreme emergency conditions , but of course that is when it has to be predictable and it has to be right. Setting it up correctly will also make cornering through the hills much more enjoyable.

I had a 1999 Expedition. When you put the 4x4 on it raises the vehicle an extra inch or 2.
It may help to turn the 4x4 off. Two wheel drive is a lower air setting.
Your original pump may still be good. The problem can be in the front. The compressor is not filling the front suspension to the cutoff point. It will lift the rear after the front end is at running height. Since you lost the front end first, the remaining air bled out there and then the rear came down. Once you shut down the car the suspension was done, all the air was let go.
There are adjustment solenoids on the body but you need someone qualified to repair this.

DO YOU KNOW THE STANDARD FRONT & REAR SUSPENSION SETTINGS FOR A ZX6R 2000 MODEL J1 AND HOW DO YOU ALTER IT. CHEERS


Rear suspension settings are adjusted via the suspension mechanism located under the bike near the main rear suspension spring on the underneath of bike parallel with the seat- looks like a can (like a slim beer can) and there is a screw one way to tighten and one way to loosen. Dont know settings but try it out one way then the other. Simple turn the screw according to direction arrows.
