What is the material used in suspension parts of automobile?
Here i have not complete answer as your question but some related information i put in your question..
The suspension parts we offer are the traditional and the most sought after parts, suitable for almost all types of vehicle. We offer these are per the standard specifications and also make such parts as per bulk buyer’s specific need. Hardened steel is machined and fabricated as per the industry standards to obtain the accuracy of original parts in our range of aftermarket parts.
Here i tell you as industry based solution which is Hardened steel is machined and fabricated to obtain the accuracy of original parts in our range of
1) Carbon Steel 98 C4(SAE 1095), properly heat treated is used for laminated springs
2) Silicon-manganese steels, 50C9(SAE 9250) and 60C9(SAE 9260), the latter having higher C content and higher mechanical properties, are both standardized for leaf springs.
3) Chrome-vanadium steel has greater strength, toughness and resistance to failure through repeated stresses.
Carbon steel with content from 0.5 to 1.0 %
Alloy Steel - increases life of springs subjected to high stresses and repeated load. Springs are mostly made from oil-tempered carbon steel containing 0.6 to 0.7% Carbon and 0.6to 1.0 % Manganese.
Spring brass and phophor bronze used corrosion must be prevented
Monel metal is used for springs exposed to corrosion and high temperatures.
Wires of size more than 10mm dia. are hot wound.
A short and sweet answer to your question-
Steel alloys are majorly used in suspension systems of automobiles. Some of the most common and popular alloys used in the manufacturing of vehicle's suspension parts are chrome silicon, chrome vanadium, low-tempered high carbon, and stainless steel.
Some other metals are also used to make springs in the suspension system like beryllium copper alloy, phosphor bronze, and titanium.
I hope you got the answer!
The suspension system consists of tires, the air in the tires, springs, shock absorbers, struts, arms, bars, linkages, bushings, and joints. The suspension system components are located between the frame of the vehicle and the road.Some of the most common and popular alloys used in the manufacturing of vehicle's suspension parts are chrome silicon, chrome vanadium, low-tempered high carbon, and stainless steel
