Redesigned Front SuspensionRedesigned Front Suspension  - Overview - Mitsubishi Lancer

The MacPherson strut front suspension is similar in layout to the previous Lancer's, but all-new, with a sharpened focus on enhancing rigidity while reducing weight and lowering the roll center. Slightly longer suspension travel (10 mm) enhances road holding even on rough roads, and road shock from driving over uneven surfaces has also been reduced.

The Lancer DE and ES models use a 20-mm (0.79-in.) front stabilizer bar, and the GTS model employs a 21-mm (0.83-in.) front stabilizer bar. The GTS also gets exclusive sport-tuning of the spring rates and shock damping force. Fitting a stabilizer strut helps ensure optimal roll rigidity and improved steering stability.
