Notice that the wheel assembly is connected through a movable assembly to the body. The weight of the car is supported by springs. In addition, there is a so-called shock absorber (sometimes a strut), which is in effect a viscous damping device. There is a similar assembly at each wheel, although normally there are differences in the detailed configuration between front and rear wheels. The mass of the car body is called the sprung mass, that is, the mass that is supported by springs. The mass of the wheel assemblies at the other end of the springs is called unsprung mass.
