Using hydraulic cylinders on each stabilizer bar and linked by a valve, KDSS reduces the of sway stiffness provided by the bars in response to changing conditions and driver inputs.

In driving situations, KDSS the wheels on each axle to with a larger degree of independence, helping to minimize any for wheel lift. During when both front and cylinders are compressed, no fluid is in the system and the stabilizer bars conventionally to reduce body

When an uneven surface is one compressed cylinder causes to flow between the front and cylinders, allowing the stabilizer to move freely.

That increases wheel articulation and as well as helping to equalize loading. By allowing the stabilizer to disengage in certain situations, the stiffness of the bars can be notably thereby reducing body and improving handling without affecting ride comfort or performance.
