Installing

Installation is reverse of removal, noting the following:

Bolting at wheel bearing housing may only occur when the dimension between wheel hub center and lower edge of wheel housing, measured before assembly, is achieved. Refer to → Chapter "Wheel Bearing in Curb Weight, Lifting Vehicles with Coil Spring".

- Install the brake caliper. Refer to → Brake System; Rep. Gr.46; Rear Brakes; Brake Caliper, Removing and Installing.

- Install the coil spring. Refer to → Chapter "Spring, Removing and Installing".

- An axle alignment may be required. Refer to → Chapter "Evaluating Need for Axle Alignment".

- On vehicles with electronically controlled damping, perform the function "Adapt the control position" with the Vehicle Diagnostic Tester.

- If the control position was reprogrammed and if the vehicle has lane assist, then it will then be necessary to calibrate the driver assistance systems front camera. Refer to → Chapter "Driver Assistance Systems Front Camera, Calibrating".

- On vehicles with level control system sensor, perform headlamp basic setting. Refer to → Electrical Equipment; Rep. Gr.94; Headlamp, Adjusting.
