French term or phrase: berceau "à corne"
I asked this question a short while back but didn't get any answers. Perhaps somebody will have an idea today.

It reduces the lateral movement of a car.

Thanks for finding the patent. I agree, "cradle comprising ears" is awkward, and they don't really look like ears anyway (Thanks Claire!!) I've decided to stick to the translation I used last time, simply "horned cradle" as the agency retained that expression for the client.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks for finding that patent. They do look like mooses horns! Sounds like whoever translated the patent was struggling as much a me.
