So I have just had the TH up on a lift to do measurements for brake cooling ducts.
While up there, I started searching for ride level sensors. I might be missing something, whichh I highly doubt because both my landcruiser 100 and wifes GC summit edition have level sensor, the TH has only 2. They are both located on the right front and right rear.
Now my theory is that the controller is doing a lot of compensation for the left side or just mimicing what the programming is. The left front has the location for the sensor built in, I could not find a wire plug, but, ball joint and the welded screws are in place, all that would be needed is to install the sensor and the wire harness which should go directly to the suspension controller, the left rear seems to have the plate for the sensor but has a connector plug there instead used for something else.

Just wondering how good the upgraded controller unit would be with all 4 corners being measured and if that is why DSC has not made a unit for our TH

Why are you selling it? Frustration with Diablosport customer service? Did you get it to work properly for your set up? What would your feedback be, I’m thinking of purchasing one.

Vanquishglory, I think you are giving the TH suspension more credit that it deserves. I believe the TH ride height sensors are only used for initial aiming of the headlight projectors at engine start up so they do not blind oncoming drivers. Only 2 sensors are needed for comparing the front to rear suspension ride heights looking to see if your cargo weight is enough to alter the rear suspension height from normal.

I do not think the suspension controller is doing any compensation for the left side nor the right side as it likely doesn't have any direct inputs from the ride height sensors.

So an upgraded controller would work exactly the same with either 2 stock sensors or with 4, it really does not matter IMO. These aftermarket suspension controllers are looking at built in OEM sensor bus data like G-Force (for braking, acceleration, cornering) steering angle and throttle percentage to make a decision on what electrical current amount it sends to each shock affecting their damping rates through dynamic "shock valving".

DSC does already make a suspension controller that is compatible with the TH (the one for the Charger and Challenger) however DSC just do not market it that way.

I cannot disagree with one word you wrote. Probably am over thinking the system. The thing that keeps me wondering is why the charger/challenger have 4 sensors and we only have 2.

That I cannot answer as the only Mopar I have owned is a Hawk. But quickly looking at what programming settings are in the Diablosport and DSC controllers I don't think the Charger/Challenger cars use the 4 sensors for suspension calibration changes.

If they did these cars would likely had dynamic shock damping straight from the factory to compete with say GM's Magnaride dynamic suspension, but they do not. The Mopar suspension tuning for the shocks only have static damping settings such as Auto, Sport, Track etc.

I don't know....at the end of the day, I installed the unit and drive and it's great. No need to mess around with things. You drive a bit quicker and it tightens up things nicely. That is what it is meant to do.

Drive and enjoy!

Sounds great, I would like to have the suspension react dynamically to changing sensors inputs as it should have come that way originally from Jeep. Having fixed static settings for each mode is very outdated by todays standards, compared to other manufacturers, as it compromises each drive mode IMO.

When I have more free time I plan on purchasing a HellCat DSC controller for my Hawk as I like their software options and the ability to change controller calibration settings as many times as you want.

Glad you are enjoying your Diablosport controller. 👍
