MacPherson Strut

Suspension system which uses a lower control arm and a damper/strut which is designed to take bending loads.

MacPherson struts are used in most front-wheel drive vehicles for compact packaging.

They also allow relatively long springs that can increase suspension travel and increase bump absorption capability.
