The suspension in a vehicle seperates the vehicle occupants from the ground. It is paramount for Safety. Suspension absorbs irregularities on the road surface. i.e. The better the suspension, the better the ride for the occupants.
An IFS offers many key benefits over earlier front suspension designs. In older designs when one wheel hits a bump, it affects both wheels. This compromises the quality of the ride and can cause traction loss, which is exasperated at higher speeds. i.e Vehicle stability is affected by design.
With an Independent Front Suspension commonly called IFS, each wheel moves independent of the other, which reduces the amount of traction loss and greatly improves the quality of the ride.
An IFS typically has lower unsprung weight than earlier designs. A quality IFS like the Superformance unit, requires considerable research and development of the engineering mechanisms at play in the movement of suspension.
Caster, Camber and Anti Dive all factored in at the time of Manufacture and considered in the design after extensive Industry consultation. Simple adjustment with premium shim adjustable control arm shafts means any competent Wheel Align shop understands how to set up. No bushed Rod Ends used which prematurely shorten bush life and no gimmicky eccentrics or camber bolts used which are either not understood or require major vehicle dismantling to set up and adjust correctly. The Alignment Industry spoke at length about what is available and we at Superformance listened.
