Double Wishbone Suspension

Double Wishbone Suspension

In automobiles, a double wishbone (or upper and lower A-arm) suspension is an independent suspension design using two (occasionally parallel) wishbone-shaped arms to locate the wheel. Each wishbone or arm has two mounting points to the chassis and one joint at the knuckle. The shock absorber and coil spring mount to the wishbones to control vertical movement. Double wishbone designs allow the engineer to carefully control the motion of the wheel throughout suspension travel, controlling such parameters as camber angle, caster angle, toe pattern, roll center height, scrub radius, scuff and more.

Famous quotes containing the words double and/or suspension:

    Go; and if that word have not quite killed thee,
    Ease me with death by bidding me got too.
    Oh, if it have, let my word work on me,
    And a just office on a murderer do.
    Except it be too late to kill me so,
    Being double dead: going, and bidding go.
    John Donne (1572–1631)

    There are two kinds of liberalism. A liberalism which is always, subterraneously authoritative and paternalistic, on the side of one’s good conscience. And then there is a liberalism which is more ethical than political; one would have to find another name for this. Something like a profound suspension of judgment.
    Roland Barthes (1915–1980)
