SUSPENSION SYSTEM OPERATION
The suspension system is identical for all models covered in this manual. It is an independent coil spring
type system. Major components of the suspension system are:
UPPER CONTROL ARM Connects geared hub to frame rail.
BALL JOINTS Connects geared hub to control arms, and allows change of angle between geared
hub and control arms during suspension movement.
GEARED HUB Serves as a mounting point for wheel and tire assembly and provides 1.92:1 gear
reduction to increase torque to wheel and tire assembly.
STABILIZER BAR (FRONT ONLY) Prevents vehicle sway when cornering.
LOWER CONTROL ARM Connects geared hub to frame rail.
SHOCK ABSORBER Dampens suspension movement and limits amount of suspension travel.
COIL SPRING Supports weight of vehicle and allows suspension travel to vary depending on
terrain and vehicle loading.
