Suspension System

suspension_diagram_large

The suspensions purpose is to provide a comfortable ride while maintaining proper vehicle tracking, directional stability, and to minimize tire wear.

The main components are springs, shock absorbers or struts and sway bars. First the springs, either the coil spring or the leaf spring, control the ride height of the vehicle. Then there are shocks or struts which absorb the road conditions and keep the tires on the road surface.
