Ford Fusion 2013–2020 Service Manual / Chassis / Suspension / Front Suspension / Front Suspension - Overview. Description and Operation


The front suspension consists of the following components:

  • Lower arms
  • Stabilizer bar, bushings and links
  • Strut and spring assemblies
  • Wheel bearings
  • Wheel hubs
  • Wheel knuckles
  • Wheel studs

Vehicles with Dynamic Suspension:

  • Suspension height sensor
  • Dynamically controlled strut and spring assemblies

Refer to: Vehicle Dynamic Suspension (204-05 Vehicle Dynamic Suspension) .

The front suspension uses a MacPherson strut system. This suspension system incorporates a strut assembly that takes the place of the upper arm and ball joint. The strut performs the function of a shock absorber and is encompassed by a coil spring. The strut and spring assembly carries the sprung weight of the vehicle and is also the pivot point for the steering knuckle. This system uses a lower control arm and ball joint for the lower (unloaded) pivot point of the steering knuckle.
