Suspension and steering

The front suspension is of independent MacPherson strut type incorporating coil springs and integral telescopic shock absorbers. The lower end of each strut is attached to a hub carrier, which carries the wheel hub and bearings, and the brake assembly. The lower end of each hub carrier is attached to a suspension lower arm by a sealed balljoint. The inboard ends of the lower arms are attached to the front suspension crossmember and the lower arms thus provide lateral location for the strut assemblies. The upper end of each strut is bolted to a suspension turret on the vehicle body. An anti-roll bar is mounted to the rear of the lower arms, and resists the roll tendency of the front suspension.
