DOUBLE WISHBONE FRONT SUSPENSION CONSTRUCTION


BHE021301015T03

Improved roadholding

• The heightened damper lever ratio has improved the efficiency of shock absorber operation.

– Damper lever ratio:
shock absorber stroke (B)/wheel vertical stroke (A)

1
Wheel vertical stroke (A)
2
Shock absorber stroke (B)

– The heightened damper lever ratio has made it possible to provide a damping force even during minute strokes. As a result, excellent roadholding is exhibited in a variety of driving conditions.

Optimized roll axis position

• The height of the front roll center is set lower than the rear.

• Change of roll center height in response to a change in wheel stroke has been suppressed in order to improve roll linearity and convergence.
