How Car Suspensions Work

The study of the forces at work on a moving car is called vehicle dynamics, and you need to understand some of these concepts in order to appreciate why a suspension is necessary in the first place. Most automobile engineers consider the dynamics of a moving car from two perspectives:

Complete Guide to Car Suspension

It is quite easy to get an idea of what a car’s suspension system does. From the term ‘suspension’ itself, it is already understood that you are essentially raising something from the ground – to suspend – in an effort to minimize the impact or effects of forces of the ground on this particular something.

1. Car rides roughly

Your suspension system gives you a smooth ride and works hard to cope with uneven road surfaces. The suspension is part of the chassis and is made up of springs, shock absorbers, struts, as well as linkages, bearings and ball joints. With time, suspension parts wear, leak, warp or break, causing various safety problems. It’s important to replace parts before it’s too late. But what determines the cost?

The Crazy Bose ‘Magic Carpet’ Car Suspension System Is Finally Headed For Production

Unfortunately, Bose never quite managed to bring Project Sound out of its skunkworks phase, and the global financial crisis that arrived a few years later provided the final nail in the coffin. Bose recouped some of the 30-year R&D costs by spinning off a company called Bose Ride that made an active suspension seat for semi-truck drivers before selling the technology to ClearMotion.

McLaren 2018 F1 car’s innovative rear suspension

The suspension system is made up of several components, including the chassis, which holds the cab of the car. The springs support the vehicle weight and absorb and reduce excess energy from road shocks, along with the shock absorbers and struts. Finally, the anti-sway bar shifts the movement of the wheels and stabilizes the car.

Found: A Car With a Suspension Made of Logs and Chicken Wire

We were initially inclined to think of this man as a jury-rigging hero before we stepped back from our desks and considered the facts: Driving a car with bald tires and a suspension made from a tree and farm surplus is indeed wildly dangerous behavior to oneself and anyone unfortunate enough to be on the road that night.

Sidecar Cross is tough. You need specificities of the Rallye cars to maintain the sidecar on the ground, but also the agility of actual Motocross Bikes for the jumps. Our experience in both sports give us a clear advantage on the roughest tracks, and our world class athletes are doing the testing job for you!
