ARC shocks question
2 questions about the shocks on the automatic ride control.
#1, if you install the ARC shocks onto a car that doesn't have ARC, and you don't wire anything up, will they default to stiff or loose, or just whatever they were at last or what?
#2, the actuators on top of the shock that are controlled by the ARC computer, are they just 12V motors that go one way or the other? In other words, would it be possible to wire them up to a switch so that I could have either a soft ride or firm ride? I know I wouldn't have the automatic feature, but if they are just a 12V motor on top it should be pretty easy to wire it up to like a window switch and then I could turn them to stiff for cornering then back to soft when I get on the highway.
