Suspension design software

What design software is out there that I can use for designing some suspension models? I'm playing around with some ideas of cantilever Coilover suspensions and a few other trick designs and would like to put them through their paces and see how they would work.

solidworks - but you have to design and draw out the entire assembly yourself.

or if you were building a linked setup, you could try one of the free ones online to get you close.

There's no easy button for designing a suspension; that's why you don't see a lot of people doing it. If you are new to the whole premise of suspension design, I would suggest a couple reads: Race Car Vehicle Dynamics and Chassis Engineering

SIMPACK. MSC.Adams.

Solidworks can create kinematic suspension models but it is not even close to something that could be considered suspension design software.
