Article includes information about the function and importance of the spring and damping mathematical relations for calculation of forces in the spring and a brief overview of the different types of vibration dampers. The suspension system affects both the driver’s control of the car and the comfort of the occupants. The springs allow the wheels to move up to absorb bumps in the road and reduce jolting, while the dampers prevent bouncing up and down. Various mechanical links keep the wheels in line.
