Replacing the front shock absorbers and suspension lift

After another the wizard, which I serve machine "pleased" me that the front shock absorbers are tired and it's time to retire them.
After studying the topic of shock absorbers and replace the whole suspension at Chiron clan ( kyron- clan.ru/forum/index...am-amortizatoram-podvesk/ ) and measurements in my car, I decided to change not only shocks, but also a range of spring. When replacing the aim was to modify the suspension with minimal intervention in the stock options and the amount is not too large. Because of this, it was decided not to get involved with all sorts of VladSprings (expensive!) And steep-type shock absorbers Koni.
From the options offered on Chiron clan most of all I liked the version with front springs from Rekston 1 and back to the classical fields. It is assumed that it is not necessary to change the front and rear shock absorbers, making the gasket under razdatku, cut spring, etc.
So, to replace the distance from the middle of the hub up to the arches were as follows:
Before - 46 cm

Back - 47 cm

to replace the following parts were purchased (all 2 pcs):
- springs front of Rekston 1, left automatic transmission (4432408002);

- Monroe shock absorbers in 7009. They write that the quality they are not always good, but the family of shock absorbers at the moment in eksziste was not;

- Supports front Strut (4431509001). In principle, it was not necessary to take;
- rear springs from the Niva (21210-2912712-00). Came strength class "B", gray with black-plated;

- Rings the upper damper (2101-2912652)

Together, the replacement took 5:00 leisurely work. It should be noted that rekstonovskie spring though and do not seem too different from the native

much tougher (bar diameter 1 mm with a little more), so it requires good pullers for springs.
Rear springs from the Niva in this case is much larger in size than the native (sagging),

and also due to the fact that the internal diameter nivovsky spring is smaller than that of the native, they do not end up put on a regular place on the rear axle

as a result of replacing the front as expected rose to 53 cm

But back unexpectedly 56 cm,the idea is not very good and should be expressed in vibration cardan and the need for shims under razdatku, though I do-he did not notice what that vibration.

The machine began to look like this

significantly improved behavior, particularly the rear suspension when traveling Nero and recumbent politseysih. Vibrations rear propeller, as written before, have not yet noticed. The front suspension has become very elastic, almost gone buildup during braking.
In general, I am very pleased, but somewhat confusing rear suspension height, maybe she podprosyadet after a while.
