Definition statement
This subclass/group covers:

Suspension for vehicle with a limitation to the type of vehicle:

Car, truck, agricultural vehicle and their trailers.

References relevant to classification in this subclass
This subclass/group does not cover:
Rail vehicle suspensions
Cycle suspensions
Informative references
Attention is drawn to the following places, which may be of interest for search:
Vehicle wheels; castors; axles; increasing wheel adhession
Vehicles adapted for load transportation
Conjoint control of vehicle sub-units
Steering
Chassis understructures
Cycles
Bearings
Springs; Shock-absorbers; Means for damping vibration
Special rules of classification within this subclass

For the whole B60G range, consider the indexing range B60G 1/00 to B60G 99/008

Suspensions with rigid connection between axle and frame
Resilient suspension for a single wheel (pivoted suspension arms per se, attachment thereof to sprung part of the vehicle, buffer means for limiting movement of arms B60G 7/00; [N: rigid axle suspensions B60G 9/00;] characterised by arrangement, location or type of springs B60G 11/00 )
Resilient suspensions for a set of tandem wheels or axles having interrelated movement
Pivoted suspension arms; Accessories thereof (means for maintaining substantially constant wheel camber during suspension movement B60G 3/26; [N: articulations for wheels B60G 5/00; leaf spring attaching means B60G 11/10, B60G 11/12; trailing arm twist beam axle attaching means B60G 21/052 ; articulations in general F16C])
Resilient suspensions of a rigid axle or axle housing for two or more wheels [N: (the axle being a part of a set of tandem axles B60G 5/00-B60G 5/065; with leaf springs B60G 11/02-B60G 11/08 )]
Definition statement
This subclass/group covers:

Resilient suspensions of a rigid axle or axle housing for two or more wheels

References relevant to classification in this group
This subclass/group does not cover:
Twist beam axles or semi-rigid axles
Resilient suspensions characterised by arrangement, location or kind of springs (single wheel suspension by pivoted arm resilient in itself B60G 3/00; adjusting spring characteristic B60G 17/00 ; springs per se F16F)
Resilient suspensions characterised by arrangement, location or type of vibration dampers (adjusting damping effect B60G 17/06 ; vibration dampers per se F16F)
Resilient suspensions characterised by arrangement, location or type of combined spring and vibration damper, e.g. telescopic type (combined spring and vibration-dampers per se F16F)
Resilient suspensions having means for adjusting the spring or vibration-damper characteristics, for regulating the distance between a supporting surface and a sprung part of vehicle or for locking suspension during use to meet varying vehicular or surface conditions, e.g. due to speed or load [N: (levelling or stabilising systems for tippers B60P 1/045)]
Interconnection systems for two or more resiliently-suspended wheels, e.g. for stabilising a vehicle body with respect to acceleration, deceleration or centrifugal forces (B60G 17/033 takes precedence; [N: levelling or stabilising systems for tippers B60P 1/045]; steering deflectable wheels combined with means for inwardly inclining the vehicle body on bends B62D 9/02)
