English term or phrase: free hinging
wheels fixed to a semitrailer, here is the sentence:
"the trailer can take a bend with appreciable speed without difficulty, one of the possibilities to obtain this being *free hinging* of these wheels about a vertical king pivot."

can't find any technical term that fits "hinging" with "wheels"...
thanks a million!
