The road grip is fundamental to a cars ability to move fast. Without the grip the car will be unable to accelerate, brake or turn with enough power. The grip is a function of tires, weight distribution, suspension etc. The car suspension plays a central role in both grip and comfort. Uprights are a central part in the suspension since it is the upright that links trailing arms, brakes and steering rod to the wheel. Its design and functionality plays a significant role to the cars characteristics. This report handles how the design and development of two uprights took place. The report offers tips on how amateur car builders can design their own uprights by help from basic information about suspension and wheel angles, which are important aspects in this kind of construction work.
