Wishbones always have been widely used in the assembly of passenger cars, often in sports and racing cars. Suspension arms must transmit forces in all directions, as well as braking force and tractive effort torque. And need to be not heavy. To the efficient use of materials the elastic components should be compact and simple to allow enough suspension travel.

Wishbone is a complex type of vehicle suspension. The springs are arranged vertically and longitudinally. With the rear end they rest the bulkhead between the cabin and engine compartment. Suspension arm moves the centre of the wheel in perpendicular and longitudinal axis planes. It is located along the longitudinal axis.

In order to ensure that efforts were transferred from the strut there is an extra swinging in the vertical plane of the axial lever on each side, the front end of which is fastened at the top of the strut. The rear one should also be attached to the front panel. There is an emphasis for the front end of the spring in its middle part. There are two types of cross-lever suspension: single lever-transverse and two-lever transverse.

Do not forget to have regular maintenance of the suspension. It is a visual inspection to see whether it has cracks or corrosion. It is also important in time to lubricate it with the necessary means. If you need to replace the wishbone, we are pleased to offer this car part to you in our online shop. We are also pleased to present you a wide range of other auto parts, such as shock absorbers, spark plugs, clutch cable and clutch release bearing.
