Suspension is probably one of the most complex aspects of a car’s structure. It represents the assembly of linkages, springs and shock absorbers that connects a car’s body to the wheels. Suspensions are vital in a car’s handling and braking, but also the key component in a vehicle when it comes to comfort for both the driver and the passengers.

Suspensions are divided in two main categories, dependent and independent and Multi-link Suspension is an independent one. It uses three or more lateral arms and one or one or more longitudinal arms and can be angled away from their natural direction. Each of the arms has a spherical joint or rubber bushing at each end, causing them to work in tension and compression and not in bending.
