Double wishbone suspension
- High level of design freedom of alignment
- Damper hampers the effects of side force
User in many sports cars and luxury cars.
SHOWA develops lightweight dampers using high-tension materials to improve ride quality and fuel performance. For further comfort improvements, we also develop oil seals that control resistance during damper operation. Based on the functional integration of advanced performance of each component part, SHOWA develops suspension modules for high-added value.
Double-tubed construction filled wish low pressure nitrogen gas. This type of shock absorber is supple and provides stable riding comfort.
Single-tubed construction filled with separate by free piston gas chamber filled with nitrogen gas. It provides a superb response as well as helps to reduce the weight of the car.
Double-tubed shock absorber with a function as part of the surpport structure of the suspension. Like the double wishbone type, it is a shock absorber filled with low-pressure nitrogen gas that is supple and provides stable riding comfort.
Structurally, this is a single-tube type placed upside down. In case of structs bears a heavy load from the vehicle body, however, this type of shock absorbers with large-diameter pipe provide sufficient rigidity.
Because the spring is mounted separately, this type features a simple structure comprised of a damping mechanism only.
