on video Suspension System Components

 


 The automobile vehicle's frame and body are mounted on the front and rear axle not directly but through some form of springs and shock absorbers. This is done to damp road shocks transmitted parts that perform this function are called a suspension system.


Thus, the suspension system includes springs, shock absorbers, and mountings. The suspension system of a motor vehicle is divided into rear-end suspension and front-end suspension.


Types of Suspension Systems:


Independent suspension: In this type of suspension, each front wheel is independently supported by a coil, torsion bar, or leaf spring. Most passenger cars now use independent front suspension, in which the coil spring system is the most common.

Types of Independent suspension:

1. Macpherson Strut Suspension 

2. Double Wishbone Suspension

3. Multilink Suspension

4. Trailing Arm Suspension


Non-Independent or Rigid axle suspension: This type of suspension was universally used before independent front wheel suspension was introduced. It may use either two longitudinal leaf springs, as shown in the figure, or transverse springs, usually in conjunction with shock absorbers. These assemblies are mounted similarly to rear leaf spring suspensions.


Types of Non-Independent or Rigid axle suspension:

1. Solid Axle Leaf Spring Suspension

2. Solid Axle Coil Spring


Other Suspension Types:

1. Air Suspension

2. Hydro Elastic Suspension
