Hello everyone, I am trying to calculate the motion ratio of a shock/spring (coil-over) in a double wishbone front suspension design. There are many tools and equations for 2d analysis, however I am working in three dimensions. I am needing the equation to derive the motion ratio for a program I am developing. I have a 3d front suspension program I am using to validate my code, but I cannot get the same values they have for motion ratio.
Does anyone know how to calculate the 3d motion ratio? I can provide sample dimensions and values, however it would be hard to make sense of.
