SUSPENSION SYSTEM OPERATION
The suspension system is identical for both models covered in this manual. It is an independent coil spring-
type system. Major components of the suspension system are:
BALL JOINTS - Connect geared hub to control arms, and allows change of angle between geared
hub and control arms during suspension movement.
UPPER CONTROL ARM - Connects geared hub to frame rail.
STABILIZER BAR (FRONT ONLY) - Prevents vehicle sway when cornering.
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.
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.
