REAR CROSSMEMBER CONSTRUCTION


BHE021428400T01

• Adoption of a six-point rubber-mounting system rear crossmember ensures link support stiffness and isolates vibration improving riding comfort and reducing road noise.

• Zero-stopper-clearance rubber bushings are installed at three points (the front, middle, and rear) of the crossmembers, six locations in total, so that they form a three-dimensional triangle.

• This construction provides the following benefits:

– Suppresses rear crossmember turning when lateral forces are applied, ensuring high camber stiffness.
– Bushing characteristics can be softened.
– Suppresses vibrations transmitted to the vehicle body.
