In this application the shock absorber is attached to the chassis at the top, and to the axle at the bottom. It is a direct-acting, telescopic-type shock absorber.
The coil spring is mounted between the axle housing and the vehicle body.
The lower trailing arm assists in maintaining the longitudinal and lateral position of the housing.
In addition, the drive torque is transmitted through this arm to the vehicle body.
The trailing arm is attached to the chassis at a rigid cross-member pivot point. This pivot point is fitted with rubber bushes.
The fixing frame is attached to the vehicle body. The frame supports the differential unit and its housing.
The drive shaft transmits the drive from the differential unit to the road wheels. These wheels are able to move or pivot independently.
