Default [ask] Suspension Calculations and Effects

Hi there,

I am looking for sources of information regarding calculations in suspension of a car, particularly the McPherson suspension and the double wishbone suspension. Can anyone tell me great sources for these kind of calculations (formulas, how to calculate, etc)? Also, does anyone know the effects if I change anything on the suspension? as in how it influence probably steering, and etc.

I am new in this kind of topic... and I am doing a university project on car suspensions, so any guidance or help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks guys !

Are you trying to learn it or just crunch numbers?

I would say simplicity is your best bet, but then that depends on what they are grading you for.
