Suspension Geometry

The wheels of an axle in a semi-independent suspension can move relative to one another as they can in an independent suspension. Still, the location of one wheel affects the position and attitude of the other wheel. Front-wheel-drive vehicles’ rear suspensions frequently feature semi-independent axles. The twist-beam axle is the most popular type of semi-independent suspension. A horizontal beam connects the two rear wheels. Although the beam can be twisted to lessen the effect of one wheel’s motion on the other, their motion is still intertwined to a more significant extent than in a rear suspension with independent wheels. On the other hand, a twist-beam axle is less expensive and more compact than a fully independent suspension.
