Link-X Stability System 2003-32-0071

Link-X Stability System (“Link-X”) is a control arm geometry that forces the control arms to both locate the tire and control the orientation of the chassis. This is achieved via crossing the control arms in the elevation view without having the control arms touch one another.
Link-X inverts the overturning moment at each tire and applies the inverted moments to the chassis. In terms of traditional suspension analysis, this geometry creates a high yet completely stable roll center. Changing the vertical distances between the attachment points on the chassis or the spindle changes the amount of anti-roll generated. Anti-pitch is created by shifting the line of intersection of the control arm planes toward the vehicle's center of gravity.
