Multi-link Rear SuspensionMulti-link Rear Suspension  - Overview - Mitsubishi Lancer

The Lancer's sophisticated new trailing-arm type multi-link rear suspension is a major factor in providing ride and handling characteristics that might be expected from a more expensive vehicle. The rack-type crossmember has been lightened, yet its rigidity increased to enhance handling response.

Compared with the current Lancer, the toe control arm has been lowered and camber rigidity increased to deliver better steering stability. Raising the trailing arm bushing has improved suspension operation when traversing rough surfaces and enhanced ride comfort. The Lancer ES features an 18-mm (0.71-in.) rear stabilizer bar, and the GTS sport-tuned suspension gets a 20-mm (0.79-in.) rear bar, changes in spring rate and shock damping forces, and pillow-ball bushing for both upper and toe control arms. Contributing to handling stability in the all-new Lancer are ball joint-type stabilizer links and a new hub unit bearing that provides higher camber and toe rigidity.
