Quick Overview

The selective control shock absorber system is especially developed for the Discovery. The compression stage and rebound is exactly aligned to the air suspension characteristic.To tap out the full potential of the air suspension the selective control shock absorber enables 90 mm more height difference on the wheel; the wheel travel of these shock absorbers is significantly increased.

Product Description

Air suspensions put demand on the shock absorbers of vehicles. The air suspension is progressive and needs appropriate shock absorber. Furthermore the air suspension builds up high restoring force which demands a shock absorber with an efficient rebound. The vehicles are heavier now, which is why all spring elements are more stressed these days.


It was a difficult task to develop the best suitable shock absorber system for these highly universal vehicles because the ride height is adjustable. The on-road quality needs to be as high as the off-road quality. The standard shock absorbers don’t meet the requirements. Good wheel control and the high net mass of the Discovery provide adequate driving comfort and traction but no reserve for higher load. The standard shock absorbers are simply swamped at high load.


The selective control shock absorber system is especially developed for the Discovery. The compression stage and rebound is exactly aligned to the air suspension characteristic. The soft set-up at low speed, at low piston speed in the shock absorber, provides high driving comfort and good traction. The tight set-up at high speed works with an extreme powerful rebound to absorb the restoring force. The use of composite bearings instead of rubber-metal combination enables the absorption of the finest vibrations. The driving comfort is enormously improved due to the lower vibration on the independent suspension. At the same time the shock absorber reduces the rolling movement to provide safer and firmer road holding. The precise absorption increases the traction which is noticeable in the operating range of the stability control.


The proper benefit of the air suspension in particular the height adjustment is not fully utilised. To tap out the full potential the selective control shock absorber enables 90 mm more height difference on the wheel; the wheel travel of these shock absorbers is significantly increased.


Combined with the Electronic Handling Kit the vehicle can be lowered by 35 mm for on-road use. The increase of driving safety is enormous. The typical rolling movements of high 4WDs don’t happen; you can drive sporty and safer. The lower aerodynamic drag is more economical and you can enter lower covered car parks. With this selective shock absorber system you can adjust the height of the Discovery by 50 mm above the off-road driving height. Up to 340 mm ground clearance is possible and it is still more available. Such variability is unique. 190 mm lie in-between the lowest and highest chosen adjustment, (standard is 105mm). The driving height dependable shock absorber set-up Selective control is world first. If you adjust the vehicle low for on-road use then the shock absorber works with a tight set-up for safe driveability and high comfort. If you adjust the Discovery for off-road then the shock absorber set-up changes significantly to soft. With this the suspension is more flexible and the axle articulation is increased. The traction is tremendous. At high load, so during deflection the set-up turns tight to avoid bottoming out.


The selective control shock absorbers are made from motorsport components to withstand the extreme stress caused by the contrary requirements. Piston rods, sealing elements and the for this shock absorber system specially developed hydraulic fluid ensure temperature resistance and constant absorption up to 180 o C.
