Main Question or Discussion Point
Hey,
I've spent ages trying to solve what seems to be a pretty simple geometrical problem and I was wondering if anyone could help me solve it/give me some tips. I am trying to model how the suspension of a car behaves as a result of a displacement of the wheels.
What the attachment shows is a double wishbone suspension connected to a fixed chassis  similar to these sorts of mechanics: http://rezachu.blog.com/files/2012/12/KugelPushrod.jpg[url]http://rezachu.blog.com/files/2012/12/KugelPushrod.jpg[/URL]http://poisson.me.dal.ca/~dp_10_14/oldarchitecture/images/bc.bmp
The suspension arms rotate about the fixed pivots on the chassis (at points A and E) and the push rod goes on the compress a spring/damper.
So my question is: for an anti clockwise change in angle (delta) in the horizontal member, AC, how will this deflection affect the position of D, G and H  all in terms of the given geometry and angle, delta.
Apologies if I have not phrased my question clearly.
Any advice would be appreciated.
