Stable through every bend!
A stabiliser usually consists of a torsion bar spring with bent ends. It connects the two wheel suspensions on a single axle. Stabiliser links are installed between the wheel suspension and the stabiliser as connectors. The stabiliser is also connected to the chassis using two rubber bearings.
Stabilisers reduce rolling motions on the vehicle that are caused by centrifugal forces while driving around bends and by load cycles.
When driving around a bend, the wheel on the outside of the bend is subject to a greater load. The stabiliser connects the wheel suspension on the outside of the bend to the wheel suspension on the inside of the bend. This causes a proportion of the resulting forces acting on the outside wheel suspension to be transferred to the inside wheel suspension. The suspension spring for the wheel on the inside of the bend counteracts these forces, thereby assisting the spring on the outside of the bend. This action results in the roll motion being equalised.
- Increased safety and driving dynamics
- Increased comfort
- Reduced vehicle rolling motions
