What Do Suspension Systems Do?

The biggest advantage of air suspension systems is their ability to vary ride height with the flick of a switch. This capability makes them one of the most versatile suspension systems on the market, even more so than coil-over shock absorbers. Unfortunately, in some systems, because the driver must release air from the bags in order to drop the vehicle, there may be more sway and worse handling caused by air shocks. Modern systems use a dual air control system that allows the driver to independently control ride height and ride quality.

Another advantage of air shocks is their ability to quickly adapt to handling requirements. The most advanced systems are designed to increase airbag pressure in response to sustained compression, which makes for improved handling prowess and greater stability.
