AbstractA suspension control system has a manual operator which is manually accessible is provided for adjusting suspension control characteristics depending upon the driver's tastes or depending upon the vehicle condition. The adjustment of the suspension control characteristics can take place with respect to each of a plurality of suspension control items, such as roll-suppressive suspension control, anti-dive suspension control, anti-scout suspension control, road roughness dependent suspension control, bottoming control and so forth. By allowing adjustment of the suspension control characteristics with respect to each control item independently of that with respect to other control items, the suspension control characteristics of the overall suspension control system can be precisely fit the driver's feeling and/or precisely adapted to the vehicle condition.
