In the paper a theoretical basis of determination of the steering wheel stub axle position
and orientation in the suspension movements space, realized by the suspension mechanism are
presented. The designed instrument allows measurement of quantities that are needed to com-
pute the translation and orientation of the stub axleand to draw the kinematic characteristics
of the suspension.
Keywords: passenger car, multi-link suspension, steering wheel translation and orientation
