Question:

Rear axle assembly and rear axle Housing?

Hello,I would like to know what is the difference between the rear axle assembly and rear axle housing?Where can i get both of these parts for 02 MustangThanks,

Answer:

Axle housing is just the shell. Axle Assembly is the entire rear end. Best place to find a complete rear end is a junk yard.

Yes I can do it. What is your question?

Cars have spoilers to increase their grip on the road. Normally the weight of a car is the only thing that forces the tires down onto the pavement. Without spoilers, the only way to increase the grip would be to increase the weight, or to change the compound the tire was made out of. The only problem with increasing the weight is that it doesn't help in turns, where you really want to grip. All that extra weight has inertia, which you have to overcome to turn, so increasing the weight doesn't help at all. The way the spoiler works is like an airplane wing, but upside down. The spoiler actually generates what's called 'down force' on the body of the car. The advantages of this can be seen very readily. Instead of having a heavy car, which is slow, or having a very light car, which can slide away easily, you now have a car that sticks better the faster it goes. Sounds perfect, right? There is one catch. Every time a wing generates lift (or a spoiler generates down force) it also generates drag. Drag is the natural reaction of the fluid (air) to resist motion through it (the car). Drag is bad, because it slows down the car. So, more down force is good. but too much down force too much drag, which is bad. Very very high performance sports cars, like Le Mans or F1, have a ratio called the 'lift/drag' ratio. The car designers try and maximize this so that the car has just enough force to get around the corners, but not so much that they are too slow. Indy cars, and ones that are designed like that can have down force on the order of 3G's, at 200mph. That means they could hang completely upside down on the track, and as long as they kept going fast enough, they would still stick to the road.

This Site Might Help You. RE: What does a spoiler do on a car? What is the deal with spoiler wings on the back of cars? Does it lift the car, making it lighter and thus faster, does it press the car downward, improving traction, does it simply improve aerodynamics making the car a little sleeker, or is it just there to look cool?
