      I was looking at modelling on ANSYS one of the pin-jointed components in a Double-Wishbone Car Suspension. However, I am a bit stuck with how I would represent the component in 2D whilst including applied loading and boundary conditions. I understand that the pin-jointed structures try to restrict rotational movement in all three planes, and that if the wheels rotate with respect to the Y axis (My rotation) the wheels pull the car in the forward direction (positive X direction) and as the wheels turn (Mz rotation) the car is pulled in the lateral direction (Y direction) and that these forces are carried through the rigid wishbone arms. I'm not too sure how to visualise this though, any help would be great.
