Do you get out of your vehicle to adjust your suspension? Do you adjust your suspension once it is installed?

Suspension Direct, Inc, (SDi) announced today the launch of its new SDi E-CLIK suspension systems for Jeep JK and JL models – allowing in-the-cab, independent suspension management for Jeeps.

The new E-CLIK system incorporates proprietary technology and tuning to deliver the perfect ride and control across any terrain, and on any surface. This is the first fully independently adjustable electronic suspension system for Jeeps. Nothing is out of reach. It is Suspension Without Compromise.

“You don’t have to get out of your vehicle to lock the hubs anymore, so why get out to adjust your suspension?” said Dan Worley, owner of SDi. “Suspension has always been about trade-offs. If you make an improvement in one area, you lose something in another. With E-CLIK ACTIVE, that problem has been solved.”

 

SDi E-CLIK Systems Overview
Originally announced in 2018 at the SEMA show in collaboration with Walker Evans, E-CLIK has progressed into three levels of suspension control for Jeep owners, all without leaving the driver’s seat. E-CLIK allows drivers to make suspension changes from their seat as needed via rocker switches. E-CLIK ACTIVE does the job for you, automatically, and E-CLIK PRO introduces ultimate tunability into the automatic, electronic system.

E-CLIK $3299

  • Rocker-switch activated three-level adjustment with independent front/rear settings.

E-CLIK ACTIVE $4299

  • 12 independent sensors calculate movements and inputs, sending messages to the SDi ECU 250 times per second, automatically adjusting compression circuits on each shock, independently, based on real-time terrain and driving conditions. This is the fastest adjustment time in the industry.
  • Patent-pending E-valve proportional valve provides near-instant data-led setting changes.
  • Includes in-cab Touch Screen Controller with three modes to adjust base shock settings.

Road – Prioritizes composure – More damping for a composed ride and excellent feedback to the driver. More sensitive to driver inputs: braking, throttle, steering.
Trail – Prioritizes comfort – Less damping for a more comfortable ride. More sensitive to vehicle pitch and roll.
Manual – Allows the driver to select the front and rear shock settings and disables the system from making automatic adjustments.

  • Provides adjustments for tire size and rear load while allowing the driver to view shock output, vehicle speed and vehicle tilt angle.

E-CLIK PRO $4999

  • Includes all the features of E-CLIK ACTIVE, plus our patent pending PRO menu, an upgrade that allows shock adjustment sensitivity to be tuned in the 5 following areas:

Pitch Sensitivity
Roll Sensitivity
Turn Sensitivity
Throttle Sensitivity
Brake Sensitivity

About the SDi E-CLIK Shocks
New technology and decades of suspension tuning experience come together in SDi E-CLIK. Available in three levels of suspension management, all E-CLIK systems utilize a 2.5” Piggyback shock which combines Walker Evans Velocity Technology with in-house custom componentry and optimizations to make the ultimate Jeep shock solution. Made in the USA, SDi E-CLIK shocks provide state-of-the-art vehicle dynamics and on-the-fly adjustability to the world of off-road.

This truly is a custom shock solution. A custom engineered low-mass, low-friction free piston provides a smooth ride over small bumps and washboards. SDi’s patent-pending E-CLIK ACTIVE E-valve makes constant damping changes while driving. And Walker Evans’ Velocity Technology shock bodies provide bypass-like shock performance, creating a speed and position-sensitive system. Next, the DU piston band is all about durability and will outlast normal graphite bands. All SDi E-CLIK shocks come complete with a top-out spring to soften full-extension situations and are easily adjustable via a three-position clip to actually change the length of your shock. This makes it a shock that can continue to work for you as suspension set up or tire sizes change.

Finally, all SDi E-CLIK shocks utilize stainless shock shafts, oversized bearings, stainless steel spherical bearings, and the highest-quality components available with focused, in-house quality control.

Designed for use with 4.0” lift kits on Jeep JL’s and JK’s, SDi E-CLIK systems are available now at your authorized SDi Dealer and come complete with seamless wiring and electronics integration.

What are your thoughts? Is this another “system” to have issues? Would you run it? Do you think this technology is beneficial?
