MacPherson Strut, Glossary and Terms, Automotive, Motorcycle, Boat Dealers
List of United States Automotive, Motorcycle, Boat, Dealers, Service Stations
A suspension system that consists of a combination coil spring and shock absorber in one compact unit at each wheel. With this "independent" suspension design, road shocks at one wheel are not transferred to the opposite wheel. MacPherson struts use fewer parts, meaning a reduction on weight and fewer elements that could wear out.
