How Cars Work
The car body under a vehicle's suspension system contains all the main chassis, which, is part of.
The system includes:

  • Frame - resulting in the vehicle engine and suspension are supported by the body, supports the structure, load-carrying component 
  • Suspension system - supports weight set-up, absorbs and dampens shock and helps maintain tire contact
  • Vehicle for guiding and directing the driver that enables the car - steering system
Tires and wheels - components with the road grip and / or rubbing motion is possible by car
If any vehicle suspension system is one of the main.
Springs, dampers and anti-impact bars: overview of the big picture in mind, with the three main components of the suspension have time to see.
This open system based on one of four basic design are:

  • Coil Springs - a heavy-duty coiled around an axis torsion bar spring is the most common type and in essence, it is. Coil springs compress and expand to absorb the motion of the wheels. 
  • Leaf springs - a spring type ("leaves" are called) consists of several layers of metal on to work
    as a unit bound together. Leaf springs were first used on horse-drawn carriages and 1985. He's still the most trucks and heavy-duty vehicles used today is found on most American cars.
  • torsion bar - torsion bars to provide coil-spring-like performance characteristics using a steel bar rotates. This is how Cars Work: once anchored one end of the vehicle frame. Other end of the torsion bar that runs up serves as an accurate a wishbone, is attached. Wheel hits a bump, vertical motion of the torsion bar, levering through the process, then moved to the wishbone. Once again the torsion spring provides power to the twists along its axis. Through the 1950s and 1960s, Packard and Chrysler in the U.S., the European car manufacturer, widely used system. 
  • Air Springs - Air Springs, positioned between the wheel and the vehicle body is composed of a cylindrical chamber, in which air to absorb wheel vibrations using compressive properties. The concept is actually more than a century old and can be found on horse-drawn buggies. Most of the time, the bellows-like air springs, air-filled, leather diaphragms was made by, in the 1930s they were replaced with molded rubber air springs. 
Ie, between the wheels and the frame - where the springs are located on a vehicle sprung mass and unsprung engineers often easier to talk about the massive search for.
Springs open and Unsprung Mass
to unsprung mass loosely between the road and the suspension springs is defined as the mass of the sprung mass, the mass of the car is supported on springs. Stiffness of the springs while the car is being driven out how to respond to widespread affects. Such luxury cars (Lincoln Town Car seems), as loosely sprung cars, bumps swallowed and can provide a super-smooth ride, however, such a vehicle under braking and acceleration, and dive during and surrounded the squat body to experience the impact or role is. Vehicles such as sports cars tightly sprung, (Mazda Miata seems), is less forgiving on bumpy roads, but even around corners, can be driven aggressively, which means , as well as to minimize body movement.

So, by itself springs to balance passenger comfort with handling the design and implementation of a vehicle, looks like simple devices is a complex task. And to make matters more complicated, the springs alone can not provide a perfectly smooth ride. Why? Springs are great at absorbing energy, but it is not so good at dissipating. Other structures known as dampers, are required to do so.
