Lada Niva/4x4/Taiga/Urban/Legend link rod (link pin or sway bar link) replacement
Have you ever wondered how a Lada Niva/4x4/Taiga/Urban/Legend, or any car for that matter, manages to so stay on all four wheels when it’s driven around a corner?
Included amongst the wonderful components of a Lada Niva/4x4/Taiga/Urban/Legend’s suspension system, there is a device called the sway bar (also known as a stabiliser bar or anti-roll bar) which works to prevent body roll.
If your Lada Niva/4x4/Taiga/Urban/Legend is clunking from around the wheels, the tyres are wearing unevenly and the steering is loose, then there is a good chance there is a suspension problem and it could be coming from your Lada Niva/4x4/Taiga/Urban/Legend’s link rods.
It is recommended to replace the left and right side link rods at the same time. Your Lada Niva/4x4/Taiga/Urban/Legend will be noisy and will become harder to control on cornering when there is a problem with the link rod.
If left for too long, tyres can wear too and replacing tyres can be more expensive than replacing the link rod. Best to replace a link rod as soon as you can to make sure your Lada Niva/4x4/Taiga/Urban/Legend is handling well.
