THIS paper describes the springs, control system, and ride of the air suspension system on the 1958 Buick.
The system is a semiclosed one, providing a variable-rate suspension, automatic leveling and trim control, and manual lift. The latter feature is a knob below the instrument panel which can be operated when necessary to cope with unusual clearance conditions. The car remains at the same height with loads of up to five passengers and 500 lb in the trunk.
The authors describe the road-holding ability of a car with this suspension system as excellent.
