Used Suspension Cross Member (Suspensiondrive)

Auto Parts Search

A suspension system is nothing more than a means to keep the wheels in firm contact with the road and give the passengers a smooth ride. A used suspension cross member allows a car suspension to maximize the friction between the tires and the road surface. This in turn provides steering stability with good handling to ensure the comfort of the passengers.

An original transmission cross member should be replaced with a similar used suspension cross member to prevent frame twisting by keeping the frame rails parallel. Boxing the frame from right behind the front cross member and the rear cross member may achieve the purpose. The front cross member is located in the front of the car, also called the sub frame. This is what the engine sits on. The control arms and steering linkage also connect to this part. The rear cross member is a part of the rear suspension. The cross member mount is the rubber bushing that connects the rear cross member to the body of the car.

If a road is perfectly flat, with no irregularities, then the suspensions would not be necessary. Even freshly paved highways have subtle imperfections that can interact with the wheels of a car. These are the imperfections that apply forces to the wheels. A bump in the road causes the wheel to move up and down perpendicular to the road surface. The magnitude, of course, depends on whether the wheel is striking a giant bump or a tiny speck. Either way, the car wheel experiences a vertical acceleration as it passes over an imperfection.

Without an intervening structure, all of wheel’s vertical energy is transferred to the frame, which moves in the same direction. In such a situation, the wheels can lose contact with the road completely. Then, under the downward force of gravity, the wheels can slam back into the road surface. The suspension system keeps the car’s wheels in firm contact with the road and provides a comfortable ride for the passengers.

A lot of the system’s work is done by the cross member. Under normal conditions, they support the body of the car evenly by compressing and rebounding with every up-and-down movement. Misaligned cross member give a rough choppy ride to the passengers. Distortion and damage can be caused to the used suspension cross member by grounding on curbs and by jacking. You can order for them either online or offline.
