We examine the spring-mass-dashpot that is part of a car suspension, how the ride is related to parameter values, and the effect of changing the angle of installation. We model a "quarter car'', meaning a single wheel.

We apply the notions of dampedness to second order, linear, constant coefficient, homogeneous differential equations used to model a spring mass dashpot system and introduce the notion of first passage time with several applications.
