About Us

Accurate and confidential suspension testing

Founded in 2003, Morse Measurements LLC is an independent, privately held company, with no vehicle manufacturer or race team affiliations. We are very proud of our independent status, as it ensures our customers’ security and confidentiality. Our specialty is suspension kinematics and compliance (K&C) testing and suspension consulting. Our K&C work led us to the purchase of an Anthony Best Dynamics suspension parameter measuring machine (SPMM) in 2004. This K&C machine is the centerpiece of our Salisbury, North Carolina automotive test center which opened on October 10, 2005.

Suspension K&C testing has become a vital part of vehicle development and racing programs; assisting engineers in the design, tuning, and simulation of vehicle suspensions for improved handling and ride performance. Historically, comprehensive suspension K&C testing has been the domain of a few large automobile and tire manufacturers, but Morse Measurements LLC has changed all that by offering a truly public suspension K&C test facility – the first, and only, of its kind in North America.

We offer a range of services to race teams, automotive development engineers, and aftermarket part developers. From K&C testing, to coordinate measurements of suspensions (CMM), to damper characterization, we can help get you the suspension data you need!
