Damper fork

In driven axles with a double wishbone axle, the damper fork transfers the load from the spring/damping system to the spring links, providing the necessary passage for the drive shaft. By using a forged damper fork made of aluminum, it is possible to reduce the part weight by almost half compared to the use of steel forks. Hirschvogel assumes design responsibility for this sophisticated part and supplies it ready for assembly.
