Title:
SUSPENSION DEVICE FOR STEERING WHEEL OF VEHICLE
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JPH05139130
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

PURPOSE: To enhance the turning performance of a wheel in a suspension device for steering wheel of a vehicle by enabling a space interval between a shock absorber and the wheel to be maintained constant even when a camber angle is greatly changed through making a caster angle large.

CONSTITUTION: The lower end 14 of a shock absorber 4 is connected to a steering arm 3. As a wheel 16 is steered, the steering arm 3 also is rotated, so that the shock absorber 4 connected to the steering arm 3 is also moved. In this case, a space interval between the wheel 16 and the shock absorber 4 is increased as the wheel is steered. As a result, even when a camber angle is greatly moved in a positive direction during wheel steering through making the caster angle large, the shock absorber 4 can be sufficiently largely spaced away from the wheel 16.
