Wishbone (Control Arm) - Find your car parts
Information - Wishbone
Wishbone is necessary to provide the movement of the wheel centre in a plane. This part is perpendicular to the longitudinal axis and is located along the longitudinal axis. It is also worth noting that none of the vehicle suspension is complete without this component. As for the most common for today McPherson suspension, wishbone suspension in this form is attached through the silent-blocks to the cross bar. It is connected to the wheel knuckle through a ball joint. The body of the car in such a structure serves as the upper arm, as it is attached to the damper strut. This design is ideal for very small and small class, but not suitable for other car classes.
Suspension on double wishbones with two elements that have a swing mount bearing on the frame, crossbar or body. This design provides connection of the outer ends by the use of ball joints with a steering knuckle or stub axle. Therefore, the bigger distance between the wishbones is the less force that acts in levers and bearings is.
Thus, the parts are less subject to the force and hence the kinematics of the suspension is more precisely.
Multi-link suspension is used in front and rear suspensions. For optimal kinematics of the wheels, as well as for better stability and handling, there are used four or five levers. Two levers are needed to hold the wheel. Others provide necessary kinematics. In this case, it is not required to combine shock absorber and spring into the strut. It is also necessary to speak about all-wheel drive passenger cars, in which multi-link independent suspension is mainly used.
If you need to replace the wishbone, it is reasonable to do this in a car workshop. Still, it is much better to order the part you need in our online store. For instance, shock absorber, ignition coil or flange. Ordering online you will significantly save your time and money.
