The first time I drove a C5 with the MagneRide I was pretty impressed. I can't even fathom how much it's improved over the years.

I believe the quick response is due to having the metalic particles in the fluid within the shock, then they use a magnet to manipulate the valving and viscosity.

This link should give a good overview of the different types of active suspensions.
