To air sus­pen­sion or not?

Land Rover AFRICA Magazine - - TECHNICAL -

I would like some more in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing the air- sus­pen­sion on a Dis­cov­ery 2. I re­alise its self- lev­el­ling and loading it up will au­to­mat­i­cally level the rear again. Does it work with ACE to coun­ter­act the roll when go­ing around a bend? Is the sys­tem fast enough to do this ef­fec­tively? When driv­ing off- road, do the elec­tron­ics and soft­ware as­sist with ar­tic­u­la­tion, i. e. in a cross axle, will it ‘ push’ one wheel down and soften the other up to find trac­tion. Or is it purely me­chan­i­cal ar­tic­u­la­tion as if coil spring were used? Is the ar­tic­u­la­tion on stan­dard coils or on air sus­pen­sion bet­ter? Does the sus­pen­sion soften up when the road be­comes un­even, e. g. cor­ru­ga­tions? - For­tuin
