Title:
VIBRATION CONTROL DEVICE AND STOPPER MEMBER
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2006170324
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

To provide a vibration control device and a stopper member capable of reducing the weight of a lower arm by suppressing a bending moment acting on the lower arm.

This stopper member 14 comprises a body part 15 cylindrically formed of a rubber-like elastic body in a disk-like shape having a diameter larger than that of an outer tube 12 and a rigid member 17 cylindrically formed of a material having a rigidity higher than that of the body part 15 and disposed around an inner tube 11. The rigid member 17 is formed extendedly from one side face of the body part 15 to the outer tube 12 side. Thus, when the inner and outer tubes 11 and 12 are displaced relative to each other in a twisting direction, the outer tube 12 is brought into contact with the rigid member 17 to restrict the relative displacement of the inner and outer tubes 11 and 12 in the twisting direction. As a result, since the bending moment generated in the lower arm 101 supporting a wheel on a vehicle body can be suppressed, an increase in the diameter of the lower arm 101 can be eliminated to prevent the overall weight of the lower arm 101 from increasing.
