Road conditions are sensed (not exactly sure how) as well as yaw and other body functions. Valving in the struts open and close to soften or stiffen the action based on BCM inputs. Obviously there are moving parts and that is what goes bad and costs so much to replace. The new Magnaride has some type of metalis flakes or something in the fluid to make it magnets. By simply applying current they can change the viscosity in a millisecond to control strut action. No moving parts equal less cost and more reliability.

Thats pretty fricking sweet. So on a 95 eldo no air bag/compressor setup correct? And does the ride level change or just the dapening of the shocks/struts?

They ALL have ELC (Electronic Level Control). That includes air shocks in the rear and a compressor. The struts up front are the active struts I explained previously.
