About Suspension Parts
This part is a perfect for your 14 Mustang. Before you make the final purchase make sure that you select the right engine for your 2014 Ford Mustang sub model from the selection bar on the product page. There are two types of suspension systems mostly used in cars. They are independent suspension and non-independent suspension. The suspension is used to absorb road shocks and a strong suspension supports the weight of the vehicle. The suspension also provides a smooth ride and allows rapid cornering without extreme body roll. It also keeps tyre in firm contact with the road. It not only prevents excess body squad but it also allows front wheels to turn side to side for steering, it prevents excessive body drive. The suspension also works with the steering system to keep the wheels in correct alignment. Parts vary according to the suspension system. Non-independent suspension: This type of suspension is also known as rigid suspension. It has both right and left wheels attached to the same solid axle. When one of the wheels hits a bump in a road, its upward movement causes a slight tilt of the other wheel. Leaf spring suspension: Leaf springs are long bundles of spring material that flex when under pressure from the moving of a vehicle's axle. When the axle moves on various road conditions, the leafs compress and absorb the motion rather than transferring all the energy directly to the chassis. Leaf springs are intended to work as cohesive units of leafs. The combination of leafs are designed to provide lift and flexibility to the rear of the vehicle. Leaf springs are also much sturdier as compared to the coil springs. They are capable of handling much higher loads with less deflection than coils. This type of suspension was used in passenger cars, but as front-wheel-drive cars became more popular, the rear-wheel-drive cars were forced to adopt independent rear suspension, to get a similar ride and handling qualities. This leaf spring suspension system consists of a propeller shaft connected to a center differential by universal joints. The solid axle is mounted to the frame by leaf spring, both ends of the leaf spring have rubber bush fitted and hardware such as shackles, nuts, and bolts are used to fix the system. This type of suspension is simple, reliable and rugged. This system is still used on many trucks and SUVs. Independent suspension: This suspension allows one wheel to move up and down with minimal effect to the other. In independent suspension, there are two sub-types. Wishbone type and MacPherson Strut. This system has parts as a ball joint, coil spring, control arm bushing, shock absorber, and sway bar bushing. Wishbone suspension: This suspension is designed in such a way to keep the wheel upright for maximum tire contact and to minimize tire wear. The upper wishbone is short and the lower wishbone is longer. Both wishbone pivot points and length are calculated to provide the best operating angle for a suspension movement. This type of suspension gives a good ride quality, it improves the steering preciseness. It also gives a good increase in ground clearance. This suspension has upper arm and lower arm, it has knuckle assembly, ball joints, coil spring, steering linkages, and shock absorber MacPherson Strut: This type of suspension has different parts it has a strut, coil spring, damper, rubber bush kit, top cover and hardware such as nuts and bolts.
