Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19909561A1] The invention relates to a rear axle for a motor vehicle that has a guide rod assembly (11). The guide rod assembly is constructed from two wheel-bearing trailing links (13a, 13b) which run parallel to one another and are joined together in the area of the ends furthest away from said wheels by a cross member (14) that is rigid, yet has a high degree of torsional flexibility. Two swivel bearings (16a, 16b) which are located at a certain distance from one another are provided for mounting the guide rod assembly on the motor vehicle body (17). The guide rod assembly (11) is mounted on the motor vehicle body (17) by means of an essentially vertical lever arm (L2) to avoid a longitudinal displacement of the rear axle despite the non-rigid design of the bearing.
