What is K&C Testing
What is Kinematics & Compliance (K&C) testing? K&C testing is a special type of vehicle suspension testing. The “K” stands for Kinematics – This is a fancy way of saying suspension geometry (toe, camber, etc.). The “C” stands for Compliance – This is a fancy way of saying suspension stiffness (i.e. how far do things bend when road loads come up through the tires).
For most people, measuring suspension K&C characteristics is very difficult – even in an extremely well-equipped shop. Imagine trying to put 2000 pounds of side load into a tire while measuring toe deflection! At Morse Measurements, K&C measurements are made easy thanks to our state-of-the-art Anthony Best Dynamics K&C test rig.
