The above assembly of suspension strut is designed on SolidWorks software, coil spring with proper dimensions is modeled along with upper and lower absorber strut, the rubber bump stop is then modeled, and all the parts of the setup component are mated together to form a coil spring and strut setup.
This major version number has been around since 2013 but the software is always improving, so now you have almost all the bike suspension systems available including special \"rail\" systems or variations of the MacPherson strut and as complex as 6-bar suspension systems.Complete chain guides, gearbox etc. simulation, also lower chain guide (click on this link to see what we mean)\"Floater\" brakes, \"floating\" shock, full gearing and rear derailleur modeling, all wheel sizes supported. Complete setup of bike geometry in one step.

Suspension system is one of the challenging portions in designing a vehicle. The complete stability of the vehicle under dynamic conditions depends on the suspension system of the vehicle. Suspension system of a vehicle is interlinked with other systems such as steering, Wheels and Brakes. The main objective of this document is to provide complete guidance in designing and calculation of an independent suspension system with double control arms. The required parameters are calculated on considering a prototype vehicle with gross weight of 350 kg such as required stiffness of shock absorbers, Ride frequency, Motion ratio, Coefficient of damping etc. A CADD model was made with CATIA v5 r20 and SOLIDWORKS on the basis of calculations obtained and stress analysis was carried out for this model in various software such as Ansys. The complete assembled model was tested in LOTUS Shark and the result was obtained.
According to Douglas L. Milliken and William F. Milliken , The design of suspension system for high performance cars involves assumption of parameters such as Roll rate and it involves verifying them at end. Several iterations have been in order to attain perfection in riding conditions in corners considering lateral load transfers. As John C. Dixon  elaborately discusses all the parameters related to a suspension system of a vehicle which provides a complete understanding of the concepts and our manuscript is scripted in such a way that only the exact required parameters are described and used for the calculation. The independent double arm Suspension system consists of Control arms, springs, Dampers and linkage mechanisms that connect the wheel and the Roll cage of a vehicle. The relative movement between the wheel and the Roll cage is obtained by this suspension system . Double arm independent suspension systems are widely preferred as they have high ride stability and reliability . This is due to negative camber gain they attain, thereby also increasing the traction in corners. This ultimately provides good handling for the vehicle [2-5]. Here in this design a perfect camber gain is achieved providing a balance between braking grip and cornering grip. The design and calculations carried out is based on a prototype vehicle of mass 350 kg. In Terms of manufacturing coilover shock absorbers, the calculation of coil diameters ratio is also performed . We have figured out an efficient method of approach in designing a suspension system for a vehicle after undergoing an elaborate research work on vehicle dynamics and various methods to design a suspension system of a four wheeled vehicle [1-13].
The basic principle of this type of suspension systems is absorption of mechanical energy and dissipating them as heat in shock absorbers . It provides a relative motion between the wheels and the Roll Cage thereby reducing the force that is transmitted from wheel to Roll Cage [1-3]. Thus, the comfort and the safety of passengers relies on the suspension system. In dynamic conditions, the spring compresses storing the impact force (jounce) and the spring expands (rebound), the vibration is ceased by dampers. 1e1e36bf2d
