In a forward suspension bracket two depreciation racks of McPherson consisting of a screw spring and the built-in hydraulic shock-absorber are applied. They are screwed from above on a body, from below on rotary fists. Side fastening is carried out by the lower cross levers of a L-shaped form which are connected to rotary fists through the replaced spherical support. Cross levers are screwed on a body through rubber support. Depending on the engine on the bottom the stabilizer of cross stability which is connected to depreciation racks through connecting bars is fixed.

The stabilizer reduces a body inclination on turns.

The driving force of the engine is transferred to wheels through two power shafts. On cars with the forward drive power shafts have various length. Each shaft is equipped with two hinges of equal angular speeds. The counterbalance on the right power shaft serves for clearing of fluctuations. Cars with the DOHC engine of 1,9 l and/or the four-wheel drive have an intermediate shaft between the transmission and the right power shaft at the expense of what both power shafts are identical on length.
