  • Apple Lim
    A Panhard bar stabilizes the rear axle of a vehicle, allowing the rear wheels to move up and down, but not laterally (left to right). By restricting left-to-right movement, the wheels are better aligned with the driveshaft and center of the vehicle.22 dic 2021
  • Where is Watt mechanism used?

    The Watt's linkage was invented by James Watt, originally for use in steam engines. The mechanism is used, for example, in the rear axle of some car suspensions to prevent relative sideways motion between the axle and body of the car or to prevent axle movement in the longitudinal direction of racing cars.
  • What is a double A arm?

  • What is an ebike torque arm?

  • Is a radius arm lift better?

    Better for on-road driving. The radius arm system will be stronger & have less moving parts to wear. It all depends on your on-road/off-road driving percentages & intended off road use. The 4 link might have more flex, not that we'll ever use it.26 ene 2018
  • How does a radius rod work?
