The MacPherson strut suspension is the most compact and lightweight independent suspension available. While it still has many of the disadvantages of other suspension systems, its space and weight savings, coupled with low cost, make it a very popular suspension for automobiles, especially in the front. It can be used for driven or non-driven wheels. In small automobiles, the front is typically a MacPherson system, and the rear is torsion bar, multilink, or double wishbone.
Double Wishbone suspension is the simplest, most effective way to maintain a constant [camber] angle in an [independent] [suspension].
Toe is a measurement of the alignment of two wheels on the same [axle] (A literal axle between them is not necessary.) You have toe-in when the fronts are closer together, and toe-out when the rears are closer together.
Suspension is the part of an automobile (or other wheeled vehicle) which absorbs shock from the road (or other driving surface) by traveling vertically. This is generally performed using a system of lever arms and springs. Various types of auto suspension have various drawbacks and advantages. The original system of a sprung suspension, consisting of a fixed axle mounted on leaf springs, first used in horse-drawn carriages and wagons, is still in use today.
Eibach Springs, with major locations in the [[United States of America|United States]], [[Germany]], and [[Australia]], is one of the world's largest "[[performance]]" spring [[manufacturer]]s and [[distributor]]s. They make springs for the suspension of nearly every [[car]] and [[motorcycle]] on the road (as well as a more limited set of performance [[valve spring]]s, as well as springs for some [[mountain bike]]s. They are known far and wide as one of the [[best]] companies from which one could purchase [[spring]]s for automotive applications. In addition, they supply their products to some of the largest [[automaker]]s in the world.
