In India, people are not aware of what is Comfort. As we are used for Bullock-Cart jerks & habitual to sit in JEEPS & TRUCKS, where comfort has no space at all. Due to this initially, we were introduced by JAPANESE SUZUKI Mini truck as a MARUTI VAN saying it as a passenger car & the latest is FORD ENDEAVOUR which is again used as an SUV which a Mini Truck all over the world.
Unfortunately, Indians have been kept away from the best products. This is the very first reason why ARC made an R&D with ARAI Pune in 1985 for manufacturing Composite Suspension for MAHINDRA.
Since then ARC decided to do R&D on its own in 1986, trying this spring on FIAT PREMIER first time in INDIA to improve its comfort to the highest level possible, with no maintenance concept like recambering & also to reduce the weight of the vehicle, thus reducing its vibration considerably.
In 1987 these Suspensions were introduced on MARUTI CAR & MARUTI VAN since these vehicles were been manufactured according to International Road conditions where they had serious jerking & bumping on Indian roads.
This was the main aim of ARC to make aware our Indians that with ARC Composite Leaf Spring Suspensions we can offer a fantastic Comfort level like Coil Suspension Car. ARC aims at offering the best Suspensions at the lowest cost possible. Since Coil Suspension Vehicles cost on higher side & load carrying is the problem with Coil Suspensions.
ARC has done a Vibration Test on FORD ENDEAVOUR THUNDER, where the Comfort level shows a difference of almost 3 times on the Vehicle
