The chassis of the Porsche 928 offers a maximum degree of safety and comfort.

The front suspension is a double control arm design with independent wheel suspension and negative steering roll radius, to provide excellent directional stability and smooth braking even on different road surfaces.

Suspension Is by way of coil springs and double-action shock absorbers in one unit.

The steering is a rack and pinion power steering system. The power assistance decreases as the road speed Increases.

Advantage: Easy steering for parking and maneuvering, good road feel at high speeds.

The rear suspension, independent with upper and lower control arm, offers more active safety than previous independent wheel suspension systems, because it adjusts rear toe to changing load conditions.

Stabilizers installed as standard equipment on the front and rear axles reduce body sway.

The suspension geometry Is designed with 30 % anti-dive for the front suspension and 40 % anti-squat for the rear suspension.

The service brakes are a dual circuit braking system with power assistance. Brake circuits are split diagonally, so that the car will still brake with di rectional stability if one brake circuit fails. The outboard vented brake discs on all 4 wheels guarantee a high degree of stability and good heat dissipation.

The disc brakes are fitted with floating calipers.

Advantages: Less heating up of brake fluid, no vapor lock even under extreme braking conditions.

A sensor in the brake pads tells the driver when the brake pads are worn.

The parking brakes are dual shoe drum brakes operated mechanically on the rear wheels.

Independent suspension with double control arms, coii springs and shock absorbers.

The steering knuckles are mounted on the upper and lower control arms with two ball joints. The ball joint is pressed into the upper control arm. The lower ball joint is pressed into a plate mounted to the lower control arm with the camber and caster adjusting eccentrics.

The front cross member is bolted to the body and includes the rear bushing for the lower control arm and the steering gear mounts. The wheels are suspended from the body by struts which consist of coil springs and double-action shock absorbers.

The struts are mounted to the body and the lower control arm with rubber bushings.
