Wheel load checking

Changing ride height at any wheel changes wheel loading at all wheels. Increasing the initial tension of a torsion bar raises the vehicle at the corresponding wheel and increases wheel load at that wheel. Decreasing the initial tension of a torsion bar lowers the vehicle at the corresponding wheel and decreases wheel load at that wheel.

^ Changing load on one wheel directly affects the wheel at a diagonal from it, while it has the opposite effect on the wheels on the other diagonal.

• For example, increasing load at wheel A increases load at wheel D.

• Increasing load at wheel A decreases load at wheels B and C.

Wheel Load Specification (front or rear axle)

• Maximum left-right load difference 20 Kg (44 lbs.)

— Check wheel load using Maha wheel load scales RWA 2 U or equivalent equipment.

— Adjust wheel load by setting front and rear ride height, as described later.

• Any adjustment of a torsion bar will have a wheel load effect on the other three torsion bars.

• Increasing the initial torsion bar tension on one side (raising vehicle) will increase wheel load on that wheel.

• Decreasing the initial torsion bar tension on one side (lowering vehicle) will decrease wheel load on that wheel.
