Instinct Electronic Shocks

Instinct Shock Absorbers, powered by DSC Sport, electronically adjust from luxury-car comfortable to super-car aggressive in mere milliseconds. Instinct adaptive technology is easy to install and includes a custom calibration which can be fine-tuned by laptop to suit your specific vehicle dynamics and driving style. In most instances, however, Instinct will adapt instinctively to vehicle dynamics in real time such that calibration revisions may be unnecessary.

Instinct knows and adapts:

  • ...when you hit a bump
  • ...when you turn
  • ...when you are braking
  • ...when you accelerate
  • ...when you are cruising
  • ...when you are racing

How does the Instinct system analyze and adapt? The brains of RideTech’s Instinct system is a fast-processing ECM that analyzes and adjusts dampening forces based on real-time inputs from a 3-way g-load sensor as well as brake pressure, vehicle speed, and throttle position sensors. All four shocks work in concert and adjust in milliseconds to keep your car sure-footed in all driving scenarios.

The Complete Instinct System Includes:

  • Four Electronic RideTech coil-over shock absorbers with remote reservoirs
  • DSC Sport Electronic Control Module
  • Sensors: including 3-way g-load sensor, TPS, Brake Pressure, VSS
  • Wiring harness and sub-harnesses
  • Comfort/Performance mode select switch
  • RideTech custom Instinct calibration
  • Tuning software and technical support


Rather than turn knobs, Instinct allows you to tune by laptop with far greater resultion across multiple tables.

Features and Highlights


In place of adjusting knobs, the Instinct System is tuned via software with the aid of a laptop. An electronic lead is connected to each shock absorber.


Instinct Electronic Shock Absorbers feature remote fluid reservoirs to ensure completely stable and consistent fluid. Military Grade wiring connectors are utilized.


A compact g-Meter lies at the heart of the Instinct System.  The small mode button toggles between two calibrations such as soft and race.
