We have developed a new multi-link rear suspension that has a simple link configuration and a lower link that features a connecting bushing mechanism developed by Nissan. This innovative new connecting bushing mechanism not only helps to provide better handling stability by ensuring high stiffness and an adequate level of compliance steer, but also helps to improve the ride comfort by suitably controlling the behavior of tires when they encounter irregularities in the road surface, thereby providing a safe and comfortable driving experience suitable for a high-performance passenger vehicle. The new link layout enabled us to reduce the number of components compared with current multi-link suspensions, we have also achieved weight reductions by precisely controlling the load transmitted to links and suspension members.

The requirements of suspension systems have become increasingly complex in recent years due to the expansion of global markets and diversification of the conditions under which vehicles are used in different parts of the world. It is also becoming increasingly important to ensure that vehicles offer the secure handling stability which are expected by drivers, but can also provide an adequate level of ride comfort when driving on a wide diversity of road surfaces in all parts of the world. From an environmental viewpoint, it is also essential to achieve weight reductions for better fuel economy.To meet these wide-ranging requirements, we have developed a new multi-link rear suspension that has a simple link configuration and a lower link that features a connecting bushing mechanism developed by Nissan. This innovative new connecting bushing mechanism not only helps to provide better handling stability by ensuring high stiffness and an adequate level of compliance steer, but also helps to improve the ride comfort by suitably controlling the behavior of tires when they encounter irregularities in the road surface,…

SAE MOBILUS® Search Tips
Please note: All terms not contained within quotes, will be evaluated using the OR operator. This means that your search results will contain all results that contain ANY of the entered terms.
AND, OR, NOT
SAE MOBILUS supports the use of the AND, OR and NOT BOOLEAN operators ONLY function with the Advanced Search.
Using the asterisk, ( * ) allows you to search for a partial word. For example, entering a keyword search of aero* will search for any word beginning with aero.
Using the question mark, ( ? ) allows you to search for a word with a single character wildcard. For example, searching for t?re would match both tire and tyre
Words in double quotes " " are treated as a phrase. Conducting a search for "heat model" will return all results in which the exact phrase "heat model" is found, while "heat modeling" would NOT be included.
A term combined with a phrase will be joined with an OR operator.
Searching for Standards
When searching for a standard please use the entire Document Number assigned, which includes the abbreviation. A space can be used, or omitted between the abbreviation and number.
