dislocated revolute joint

      I'am doing a static simulation of a suspension system but the revolute joint conecting the side plates and the main plate starts moving.

      The model is overconstrained. Delete the second Revolute joint. You only need one.


      Under Analysis Settings, change Large Deflection to On.

      Thank you verry much for your answer.


      I have another question.


       I want to know the system reaction force under compresion to aproximate the suspension to a nonlinear spring but the joint probe at the wheel indicates 0 force. Is there another way to perform this study?

      Insert > Probe > Force Reaction.


      Scope it to the Remote Displacement.
