Development of a New Multi-Link Rear Suspension 881774
Nissan is installing a newly developed multi-link rear suspension in its new 240SX model. This suspension achieves maximum improvement in handling and stability through unique toe control, enhanced dynamic geometry and optimized alignment. The incorporation of attitude control also works to provide flat ride characteristics by greatly mitigating jacking up and squatting motions. This paper discusses the development objectives, results of CAD/CAE analyses and experimental data obtained in tests of the new suspension installed in the 240SX.
