The suspension of motor vehicle development was not the result of an idea outside the box a designer or engineer. It was rather a design change in horse-drawn carriages, a solid bar of the structure of the vehicle instead of the wheels and chassis, which is made of springs used. For the purposes of the suspension of a car, worked in the spring and axle combination is quite good, offering the simplicity and robustness. Today, this configuration is sometimes replaced by coil springs, too heavy commercial trucks and ATVs, including rock crawlers, where strength and constant ground clearance is the key to find.

In early 1900, the designer of suspension sought ways to improve management, and the first drafts of the independent front suspension has been made. The development, nature of the suspension, finding its way into cars, swing axle, hairpins, MacPherson and double wishbone suspension. The axis of oscillation and finally the types of front suspension arms were significant improvements in rigid axle design, and provides improved ride and handling. However, these constructions of errors, such as unwanted changes in tilt and movement of the suspension in unwanted directions (a train of particular concern swing axle suspensions known as tunneling) years.

Today we often find a used double wishbone front suspension and MacPherson, as in cars. MacPherson has a solid foundation in the production of cars, because the design is simple and compact, making it ideal for compact cars, front wheel drive. Besides offering decent comfort, size allows use where space is a luxury, even if the drive shaft instead of front-engine, four wheel drive vehicles. But even this very popular form of the front suspension has its drawbacks, for, win, especially in the area of ​​positive camber when turning and the limited width of the bandwidth that the car can be built. For this reason is double wishbone suspensions of luxury cars and expensive high-performance, where the driving and handling characteristics of the priority of the costs. The front fork suspension design of this type leads to stiffening the suspension prevents unwanted rash. They also provide unequal length fork negative camber when the vehicle’s design leans into a curve, the greater promotion of management.

The flexibility of this type of front suspension double wishbone suspension engineers offer almost unlimited possibilities for designing a vehicle chassis geometry specific. This type of suspension is the latest design on the road today, and you can find everything from Honda to expensive sports and luxury cars.
