The suspensions of a vehicle are composed of the set of elements necessary to connect the wheels to all the other components necessary for their operation, such as, for example: hub, brakes; but also to the chassis, to the bodywork and to all the mechanical parts connected to the functioning of the wheels.
The various elements of the suspension system serve to control the movements of the wheels, by means of the arms and to retain part of the kinetic energy coming from the roadway, by means of the shock absorbers.
