Chevrolet's "Knee-Action" wheels enjoy the advantage of being completely enclosed osed in a weathertlght homing; the coil spr shock absorbers ride in a bath of oil. William E.

The radiator o al construction of the system. f the new car has added beauty through its graceful and sharply pointed design. Smartness has been the theme In every line of this year's Chevrolet. The driver and passengers In the new 1934 Chevrolet get a ride like the elide of an airplane. One of. the main factors in improving the riding qualities of the new car to such a great extent is the "Knee-Action"—or independently sprung front wheels, to use the technical •^»i»> term. So much has been written about independent springing that the public has doubtless concluded that it is something too technical to understand. As a matter of fact, there is nothing complicated about either the principle involved or the construction of the system. Chevrolet's ''Knee-Action" enjoys the advantage of being enclosed in a welded weathertight housing in which the entire spring mechanism and shock absorbers ride up and down in a bath of oil. An automobile gives a perfect ride when both the front and rear springs have the same "frequency," or tension. Actually this has been impossible to carry out in the past because the front springs had to be over twice as "stiff" as the rear springs in order to hold the front axle, wheels and brakes in place. In independent springing, the wheels and spring mechanism are rigidly attached directly to the frame and there is no front axle. By relieving the front springs of the task of carrying wheels and axle, therefore, it became possible to make the front springs as "soft" as the rear springs. When the new Chevrolet strikes an irregularity in the road, both front and rear move up an'd down with the same frequency—there is no inclination on the part of the rear end of the car to leap into the air and throw the passengers forward and upward. Chevrolet's "Knee-Action" has additional advantages all contributing to a comfort in riding never before thought possible in a motor car. There is a decided improvement in handling, steering, safety at high speeds and tire economy. In design, the front spring is a neat, compact and efficient unit, as Mr. Holler points out in the above picture. The entire spring mechanism is attached rigidly to the frame. From this enclosed unit the wheels spring vertically at the ends of strong, steel horizontal arms will be held at the elevator this week Wednesday.
