delivers improved cornering on dry road surfaces
eliminates the need of snow tyres, tyre chains etc.
ensures effective transmission of engine torque to all four wheels, even on slippery road surfaces.
ensures that effective braking cab be performed, even on slippery surfaces
absorb vibration and impact forces from the road surface
ensure that the steering wheel can deliver a suitable amount of steering force
ensure that wheel alignment is not disturbed during driving
automatically correct the effects of over steering
The basic function of the suspension is to absorb vibration and impact forces from the road surface.
it is desired to reduce the unsprung mass
it is desired to have more flexibility in design
it is desired to improve type to ground contact characteristics
large changes in load make it necessary to have a large suspension stroke
