Semi-Trailing Arm Suspension

This is a model of an independent rear suspension configuration that relies on a specific mechanical topology to produce the desired kinematic response to a disturbance from the road. The dynamic response is defined by the spring/damper arrangement and compliant bushings on the joints between the lower control arm and the chassis.
