    However, the front suspension was a totally new design. Instead of the traditional longitudinal torsion bars found on every Chrysler product since , the F bodies used a transverse torsion bar, which placed the bar anchor near the control arm on the opposite side. The bar on each side was roughly L-shaped, and ran across the front of the car just ahead of the K-frame. This was supposedly to give the compact cars a "big car" ride. The rest of the front suspension was similar to that of the A body, with upper A-arms and lower control arms.

    A front sway bar was standard. The rear suspension used a new design for attaching the leaf springs to the frame of the car. Chrysler called it an "Iso-Clamp," and it was basically a rubber donut sandwiched between the spring perch and the frame. The idea was to reduce transmission of road vibrations into the passenger compartment. The "Iso-Clamp" design was used on all of the other rear-drive Chrysler products from on. Chrysler furnished the F bodies with 11 inch front disk brakes and 10 inch rear drums 11 inches for taxi and police applications.

    Power steering and power brakes were both optional. Wheel diameter was 14 inches for nearly all models, with standard and optional tire sizes ranging from D through GR in 78 series.
