In the C-class Mercedes-Benz car on the forward bridge there is a so-called double cross lever.

Wheels fasten on two triangular levers: the top lever through rubber support is connected to a body, the lower lever is fixed on the bearing bridge beam. Both levers via hinges conduct a rotary fist. The spring and the gas shock-absorber are fixed separately from each other on the lower lever of a suspension bracket. Unlike the standard designs the shock-absorber is not used as the leading element of a suspension bracket that provides timely operation and smoothness of the course. The stabilizer of cross stability provides the best coupling of forward wheels with the road, first of all, on turns.

Forward wheels stand on two conic roller bearings with an adjustable gap.
