5. Front suspension types regarding the operation

 

Elastomer:

  • elastomer rubber works as a spring for rebound and also for damping
  • are less expensive and work satisfactorily only in summer, since elastomer rubber becomes stiff at lower temperatures

 

Coil/oil:

  • coiled steel springs for rebound and oil for damping
  • work best of all and are the heaviest

 

Air/oil:

  • air chambers for rebound and oil for damping
  • don't work as well as the coil type, but are much lighter
