What is Air Suspension?
The traditional suspension system (shock absorber and strut) on many vehicles has a dampening system that is set by the manufacturer and it gives a certain ‘ride control’ feel to the passengers, with no opportunity to make changes to the system to allow a firmer or softer ride.
Air suspension systems use an air compressor combined with air struts and suspension air bags to control the feel of the ride. In some cases, this can be adjusted by the driver to give that different feel to the ride, firmer or softer, depending on the preference or purpose of the individual concerned. This is one of the advantages of this type of system. Another advantage of air suspension is having control of the ‘ride height’ (depending on the system). Many systems control this automatically without any requirement from the driver to have any input.
Where a driver does have the opportunity to have an input in controlling the ride height of the vehicle, the air suspension system can be adjusted to accommodate larger and heavier loads. This prevents the rear end of the vehicle from sitting too low. Some systems automatically make the adjustments and the driver will not see or feel any difference in the everyday ride of the vehicle except for the additional weight.
Whereas, for the traditional shock absorber and strut combination, the level of rebound is set and therefore no matter what the weight of your load is, no adjustment is possible.
