Drop links on a Griffith?

5 posts in this topic

What are they and why? confused.gif

Just cropped up in conversation recently and I wondered what they do. (I believe they are something to do with the suspension).

IIRC Drop links connect the Anti roll bar, to the suspension, depending on the type fitted they will reduce the amount of roll during cornering...

Anti roll bars are generally used to tighten (decrease roll, like Xfyffes pointed out)suspension without playing about with the spring rate or shock absorbers.

As with all suspension mods on a fast car, if you do them well they will make the car better and if you make an @rse of it you will know about it.

In the case of pretty much all TVRs, they are prone to oversteer so it would be common practice to modify the front drop links and anti roll bar to stiffen the front and make the rear grip better but if you overdoo it the grip at the front will be less causing it to slide and ending up with understeer.

But the term drop link usually refers to the small metal rod connecting the anti roll bar to the suspension arm.
