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 weatbertlght housing in which the entire spring mechanism and shock absorb' er» 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 wheeb 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 wheel* and axle, therefore, it became possible to make the front springs as "soft" as the rear springs. When the new Chevrolet strike* an Irregularity In the road, both front and rear move up and 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 passenger* 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 hiih speeds and tire economy. In design, the front spring is a neat, compact and efficient unit, a* Mr. Holler points out In the above picture. The entire spring mechanism is attached rigidly to the frame. From this enclosed unit the wheel" spring vertically at the ends of strong, steel horiiontnl A baby Rirl was born to Mr, Mrs. Clarence Nemmers Friday.
