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

Overview

The rear suspension consists of the following components:

  • Coil springs
  • lower arms
  • Shock absorber
  • Stabilizer bar and links
  • Toe links
  • Upper arms
  • Wheel bearing and wheel hub assemblies
  • Wheel knuckles
  • Wheel studs

The rear suspension uses 2 parallel arms (1 upper and 1 lower). Each arm has a mounting position to the chassis and an attachment at the wheel knuckle. This suspension allows the wheels to react to road imperfections independent of each other. The shock absorber mounts to the wheel knuckle and along with the spring, controls vertical movement. The stabilizer bar and links control suspension lean/sway.
