1. Homework Statement

The problem is that I can't find how am I suppose to calculate the suspension - vibrations on the arm of a car (simple beam) that connects the chassis with the wheel, when I have a hydraulic pipe connecting the arm with the chassis. I consider, in a free body diagram, the hydraulic pipe as a spring with constant 300 times softer than the steel's constant.. But how am I suppose to arrange the forces to the beam according to the spring, since it's not vertical neither horizontal but diagonally. Can I take the forces separately in the different axles (x-y)? If you need more informations, please let me know, I can also provide you a diagram.
