Which suspension?

Which kind of suspension will be build-in in the Dart?

Cheers, Andrew

RE: Which suspension?

Can you be more specific? Without more detail, your question is like asking, "Which kind of door panels will it come with?"

Hope this helps: "The 2013 Dodge Dart's suspension uses MacPherson struts in front and a two-link in the rear. Although it shares parts with the Alfa, Chrysler execs say the Dart's ride was softened for more universal appeal."

Interesting image of a "Twist Beam Axle", but that is not a Dart suspension. The Dart has a independent rear suspension. It contains two lateral links with a trailing arm.

FRONT:


REAR:

RE: Which suspension?

Adjustable coilovers would be nice.
I live in an area that has snow in winter and raising the suspension would help be able to drive the car better in winter.

I never drove my 08 Eclipse GT in winter since I lowered it - wasn't good for winter at all.

And I will also be getting a set of wheels/tires for the Dart for winter driving.

Ugh! It's quite irritating that cars always end up dumbed down for the US market.

I wonder how long it'll take for the aftermarket to fix that. (Though even if it does, we still end up paying twice for what we should be paying for just once).

I went into a corner at about 135 kmh...side by side with a lowered Escalade truck body.
It out cornered me.
The Darts suspension is soft and prone to extreme body roll.
Disappointing.
My previous cars all were performance models and had decent cornering without modification.
I have a stock sxt rallye model.
Guess it's time for the bc coilovers and sway bars.
the car understeered so bad my wife turned white.
wish they didn't detune for North America.
Work to do....
