    With all the questions about FRIC suspensions and other bizarre ideas which F1 has spent millions on have the active suspensions which were used prior to 1993 in F1 ever found a use on road cars?

    Active suspensions were used in road cars long before F1, most famously in the Citroen DS. Looking at the grab bag list provided on Active suspension - Wikipedia active suspensions seem to have commonly applied in luxury road cars since the late eighties.

    Lotus were testing F1's first active suspension when Colin Chapman passed away in December 1982.

    Most of F1's major supposed major innovations were actually in use on road cars before they made their way into F1.
