There are two ways to get your car 'in the weeds'.
You can go old school and use hydraulics, but these have always suffered from the pitfalls of poor drivability and the need for frequent maintenance.
Over the last 10 years or so, a few companies have developed the other method - reliable 'air ride' systems which are cleaner and involve less plumbing than hydros. Air systems do give up some of the speed of hydros, but set up correctly, they will give a very cushy ride without the issues of traditional hydrolic systems.
