DETROIT TIMES CANTILEVER SPRING MAKES CAR RIDE EASILY —i. w i It XNkl.l V •'Almost every umomobiliat today iec tig nixes a cantilever spring on sight This construction, which ha been generally adopted by those manufacturers who build the best, is tamiliar to nearly all of us, but how many drivers really know why a cantilever spring maket* a iar ride easier than othei types of rear suspension ?” G W Franklin, local Dort dlstrlb Utor, recently in;*tie- the above State menu which In* accompanied with an inteif-Ming explanation of th* woiwii g- ot the cantilever spring as be r-e* I hem An automobile engineer,” says Mr Franklin, "would probably de scribe a * antilever spring with ma::> technical terms, but this is a little too deep for the average man. M> uii idt a of th** cantilever spring Is a >ptmg that is so anchored «>r attached to th*- cha. -is, that the re bound of the spring is downward Instead of upward Thus the occu pants of the car get the benefit of th** fl* xing of the springs when road shocks are encountered and the downward rebound of the springs tend.- to keep ihe rear wheels of the car on the ground, instead of lifting th**m dear of the toad, as is the case with the semi-elliptic, three quarter elliptic or full-elliptic spring This means not only easier riding, but less wear on the tires as the rear wheels are kept on the ground practically all the time. "The length of the spring has con siderable to do with its riding qual ities, and a long, wide spring is par ticularly desirable. Mr Blanche, the chief engineer and designer of ft-e Dort, has taken advantage of This, In the full cantilever springs that form the rear suspension of his car. and has made these very wide and r>o 1-8 inches long This relation of spring length to chassis and wheel base js exceptional, being greater than in any other car at anywhere near the Dort price, and it has much to do with the flno riding qualities of this car.” Boy Fatally Crushed at Play.
