Abstract: Car suspensions are a key element for the good behavior of cars. There are many types with their advantages and disadvantages, but among them, the most used and known today is the MacPherson strut suspension. The MacPherson strut is a system devised by Earle S. MacPherson in the 40s and patented by Ford in 1953, which today is used for the front axle of most cars. This type of suspension is very versatile because it can be used on the rear as well as front axles, and because of its low cost. These types of vehicles present many breakdowns on these pieces in the municipality of “Ocaña, Norte de Santander, Colombia” since the type of terrain is very complex (steep slopes, poor condition of the roads, among others), which leads to breakdowns on the pieces due to shear stresses, which could cause a traffic accident and high repair costs. This work seeks to show the identification of the vehicles that use the MacPherson strut and its possible failures. Subsequently, the analysis of the stresses on the lower arm system of the MacPherson strut is carried out in compact cars using simulation software. to perform the physical analysis behavior.
