Front Mac Pherson suspensions are widely used by the car manufacturers. The quality of this suspension depends in part on low friction in the shock absorber.
Among all the solutions proposed up today, none are giving full satisfaction.
To remedy the problem, ALLEVARD has developed calculations and new types of springs in order to minimize the frictions in the shock absorber and to reduce the space required and the mass of the spring.
