Ford Escape: Front Suspension / Description and Operation - Front Suspension - Overview

Overview

The front suspension consists of the following components:

  • Lower arms
  • Stabilizer bar, bushings and links
  • Wheel bearings and wheel hubs
  • Wheel knuckles
  • Wheel studs
  • Front strut and spring assemblies

The front suspension uses a MacPherson strut system. This suspension system incorporates a strut assembly that takes the place of the upper arm and ball joint. The strut performs the function of a shock absorber and is encompassed by a coil spring. The strut and spring assembly carries the sprung weight of the vehicle and is also the pivot point for the steering knuckle. This system uses a lower control arm and ball joint for the lower (unloaded) pivot point of the steering knuckle.
