Each car is provided with a chassis, on which the wheels are mounted with the components of
the suspension. The wheel suspension ensures that the wheels are connected to
body, but also that driving is made as comfortable as possible. For
example, the components of the wheel suspension ensure that vibrations and
shocks from the road surface are absorbed. In addition, the components ensure
that the contact with the road surface is optimal and that the steering system
is correctly controlled. This ensures that the chassis does not swing out too far
when driving through a bend. Wheel suspension parts
The wheel suspension consists of the
track control arms, ball joints and an anti-roll bar.
track control arm is a part with the shape of a triangle. This part connects the
wheels and the body. This part allows you to brake, accelerate and corner
without the car tipping over. If the car were not equipped with a track control
arm, these forces of the car would have a major influence on the wheels and
wear. The track control arm is very solid and will therefore not break easily.
The parts such as the ball joint and the control arm bushing are parts
that will wear out faster, and will therefore need to be replaced sooner.
ball joint ensures that the wheels can turn and steer at the same time. The ball
joint absorbs the rotating movement when steering and also absorbs in and out
spring movements. This occurs, for example, when driving over a high threshold.
The ball joint often has a hard time, which can lead to play. In case of play
on the ball joint, it will have to be replaced. The play can be noticed by
sounds coming from the suspension or because the car has a steering deviation
and vibrates more than normal.
anti-roll bar connects the right and left wheel suspension. The anti-roll bar ensures
that the car remains stable in the bends. Without this bar, the car would lean
too much in a bend. The anti-roll bar is connected to the wheel suspension by
means of rubbers and brackets. The anti-roll bar generally does not need to be
replaced often. This depends on the driving behaviour, on roads with many bumps
and bumps the bar will wear out sooner than on a straight road. The stabilizer rubbers, on the other hand, are subject to wear and will therefore have to be
replaced more often. Buy wheel suspension car
