1958 Chevrolet LEVEL AIR SUSPENSION 580049

CHEVROLET has made its new air-suspension system easily interchangeable in production line assembly with standard full-coil suspension by adopting a 4-link-type rear suspension with short and long arms.
A feature of the system is the mounting of the leveling valves within the air-spring assemblies. These valves correct riding height continually at a moderate rate, regardless of whether the springs are leveling or operating in ride motion.
The system provides constant frequency ride—ride comfort remains the same whether the car is occupied by the driver alone or is fully loaded.
