What is Independent Front Suspension?

1 minuteread


Independent Front Suspension:

Unlike solid front axles, independent front suspensions (or IFS for short) allow each wheel to maneuver independently of every other.

This is the higher-tech suspension option. There are more moving parts needed to permit each wheel its axis of movement. Each wheel is connected to a series of control arms. And in contrast to solid front axles, steering inputs are transmitted to the wheels through a series of tie rods. All in all, IFS systems are considerably more complex than solid axles.


IFS Benefits and Drawbacks:

One of the largest benefits of IFS is its superior handling capabilities. Since the wheels aren’t addicted to one another, drivers of IFS equipped vehicles don’t need to worry about how their rig may react to obstacles. They will simply drive forward and let their vehicle do the work.

It’s for this reason that IFS setups are used for many high-speed off-road situations. Their ability to quickly cater to bumps and jolts while keeping the vehicle pointed forward is essential to succeeding in any off-road race. More and more rigs sporting independent front suspension is seen running races just like the King of the Hammers, easily one in all the foremost technically demanding off-road competitions within the world.

Additionally, IFS suspension setups generally have less unsprung weight than solid axles. This isn’t always an honest thing for off-roading as high unsprung weight could potentially help with traction. In scenarios where IFS already excels, however, lower unsprung weight is incredibly useful. This permits the suspension to stay the vehicle steady and planted over obstacles, even when moving at high speeds.
