Independent suspension in which axle shafts project from a rigidly mounted final drive unit. The wheels move independently up and down relative to the differential.
It describes a sort of independent rear suspension with the use of half shafts which have universal joints at their inboard ends on both sides of the differential. This creates up-and-down movements of the wheel with a camber angle change.
Type of independent rear suspension using half shafts that have universal joints only at their inboard ends on both sides of the differential. This causes a camber angle change of the wheel with up-and-down wheel movements. TACHOMETER An instrument that indicates the number of revolutions per minute at which the engine is turning.
A suspension arm, which is pivoted near the front-to-rear centreline of the car, and which, allows the wheel to swing vertically about that pivot point.
A swing axle suspension is a simple type of independent suspension used in automobiles. Swing axles have universal joints connecting the driveshafts to the differential, which is attached to the chassis. They do not have universal joints at the wheels - the wheels are always perpendicular to the driveshafts.
