Leaf Springs - The most important piece of your vehicles suspension. http://www.sdtrucksprings.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1_125
On most older and cheaper bikes, knees. On newer bikes, mechanical contrivances which cost a lot more than knees. See Moulton.
Refers to the various springs, shock absorbers and linkages used to suspend a car's frame, body, engine and drivetrain above the wheels.
Connecting system, including springs, between vehicle wheel and body, designed to give best possible riding qualities by keeping unsprung weights to a minimum and reducing shock loadings on track.
The assembly of springs, shock absorbers, torsion bars, joints, arms, etc., that cushions the shock of bumps on the road and serves to keep the wheels in constant contact with the road, thereby improving control and traction. More on F1 suspensions
The system of springs, shock absorbers, sway bars, and so on, directly connected to the wheels or the axles, that affects the handling of a race car.
Springing system that allows the road wheels to rise and fall in a controlled manner when rolling over bumps.
the system of devices (as springs) supporting the upper part of a vehicle on the axles
The arrangement of springs, shock absorbers, torsion bars, joints, arms, etc. which reduces the shock of bumps on the road. It keeps the wheels in constant contact with the road and improves control and traction.
Means whereby the vehicle body is supported on its undercarriage, comprising springs, dampers and locating linkages
a mechanical system of springs or shock absorbers connecting the wheels and axles to the chassis of a wheeled vehicle
The system of springs, arms, shock absorbers and related components that connect a car's body and frame to its wheels and axles.
System that helps a bicycle and rider absorb shock. It allows a wheel to move up and down while the tire maintains contact with the ground.
A system designed to absorb shock on a mountain bike, similar to that of a motorbike.
A system that absorbs shock on mountain bikes and some road bikes.
A typical suspension has locating members (i.e., upper and lower A-arms), a suspending medium (coil springs), a damping medium (tube shocks) and a means of lateral interaction (anti-roll bar). This last one has other aliases: stabilizer bar, sway bar, anti-sway bar. Also, our nomenclature of "tube" shocks is utterly traditional: Years ago, lever-action shocks were another alternative; they haven't been fitted in decades.
An assembly used to support weight, absorb and dampen shock, and help maintain tire contact and proper wheel-to-chassis relationships.
The portion of a vehicle that connects the wheels to the frame and controls ride quality and handling. Most suspensions feature coil springs or leaf springs, shock absorbers, anti-roll bars and a system of linkages.
a method of sediment transport in which air or water turbulence supports the weight of the sediment particles, thereby keeping them from settling out or being deposited thermal spring - a warm or hot water spring; many occur in regions of recent volcanic activity and are fed by water heated by contact with hot rocks far below Earth's surface
Some manufacturers and models come with front and/or rear suspension. This allows the wheel(s) to move up and down absorbing impacts and bumps. The smoother ride will also help increase traction as the wheel(s) stay in better contact with the ground on uneven surfaces. Rear suspension is usually a swing arm set up with a coil spring over shock dampening system. The suspension travel is usually listed as millimeters. 1 inch is equal to 25.4 mm.
A vehicle's suspension system is made up of the components on which the vehicle rides, including shock absorbers, struts, springs (coil or leaf), sway bars, ball joints, control arms, or torsion bars. These parts work together to provide a smooth comfortable ride, as well as good control and handling of the vehicle. These components take a beating on a daily basis and therefore wear out. This wear causes the alignment angles to go out of adjustment, which results in tire wear and poor handling. That's why it's a good practice to have alignment checks every 12,000 miles or 12 months, whichever comes first.
This is the part of the car that affects the handling. It bolts to the chassis and to the wheels or the axles. Some components that make up the suspension system are: A-Frames, springs, shock absorbers, and sway bars.
The piece on that a pendulum hangs, usually a spring but in some older clocks a piece of thread is used.
Attaching parts, including springs and shock absorbers for securing the axle, or axles to a chassis frame.
General term for any system of components used to attach axles to frame. The system of air or springs which supports the truck chassis to its axles.
The system of springs and shock absorbers connecting the wheels and axles of a car to the chasis.
The components in an upholstered piece that provide the support and comfort for the seating and back areas. Coils, sinuous springs, webbing and foam are common components.
Suspension is the term given to the system of springs, shock absorbers and linkages that connects a vehicle to its wheels. Suspension systems serve a dual purpose â€“ contributing to the car's handling and braking for good active safety and driving pleasure, and keeping vehicle occupants comfortable and reasonably well isolated from road noise, bumps, and vibrations. These goals are generally at odds, so the tuning of suspensions involves finding the right compromise.
