Abstract The paper presents the theoretical discussion on the possibility of replacing the actual design of the steel control arm of the car produced today by the structure made of polymer composite. Today exist the solutions of the whole suspension using composite materials and it is justified by the synergy effects possible to obtain. These solutions are characterized by smaller unsprung masses and higher damping.
