What Is a Wishbone for a Car?


A car wishbone is an automobile independent suspension that is made in two parallel wishbone-shaped arms so as to show where the wheel is. Each wishbone comprises of two positions that mount to the chassis and the other position mounting to the wheel hub. There is a shock absorber and coil spring that is mounted on wishbones and the use is to control vertical movements.

In automobiles, a double wishbone (or upper and lower A-arm) suspension is an independent suspension design using two (occasionally parallel) wishbone-shaped arms to locate the wheel. Each wishbone or arm has two mounting points to the chassis and one joint at the knuckle.
A car wishbone is a type of suspension that is shape like an “A” or the wishbone of a bird. This shape gives the suspension more rigidity and capability to handle rough terrain but takes up a lot of space so they are mostly found in sports and racing vehicles.
A wishbone is a term used to describe a variety of suspension components that locate the wheels or axles and restrict their movements for optimum handling and traction. Suspension geometry is the complex relationship among suspension components as they move.
A car wishbone is a transverse link suspension shaped like an A, with a wide base that enables it to accommodate lateral and longitudinal forces. It helps to maximize the friction between the car tires and the road surface, therefore providing steering stability. A double-wishbone suspension is more effective, although it requires more space and it's used mainly on sports and racing vehicles
A wishbone bush is a lining of rubber or the like set into an orifice to guard against wearing by friction, erosion, etc.
