Why IFS?

Post by MudRaider on 11/29/2011, 8:31 am

thinking about all the parts involved between a IFS and let's say a leaf-spring solid axle front end, why would manufacturers use something where there are so many parts to wear out (IFS)?

Well the best answer is "that's what most drivers want" a smooth,quiet and comfortable ride. This can be accomplished much cheaper with IFS.

If u want a straight axle buy a Jeep.

If you want your truck to perfrom like a car IFS is a good thing, but to push IFS Wheeling with bigger tires and lift that could get expensive fast

So the manufacturers only do it for the people who view their vehicles as toasters, appliances to use to get them from point A to point B. that's so gay.
