adjustable suspension system can vary the firmness of shock absorbers while a vehicle is being driven
in order to give better ride comfort or handling. Some adjustable
suspension systems automatically sense road conditions and
change the shock absorber settings accordingly. Others include
a switch on the instrument panel or console that allows the
driver to select shock-absorber settings to provide a softer
or firmer ride, or sharper handling.
Some adjustable suspension systems require that the car be
stopped and the work carried out manually.
