Vehicles in GTA Online are a prized possession for players. GTA Online offers a myriad of customization options for cars, and one particular modification that stands out is the hydraulic suspension.

Having appeared prominently last in GTA San Andreas, this particular modification was a huge call-back to the legendary legacy title from Rockstar. This has been a hot choice for players since the Lowriders update was first made available in GTA Online.

This article explores how players can install and use the car hydraulics modification in GTA Online on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Hydraulics Controls for PS4, Xbox One and PC

For PS4:

  • Hitting the X button once raises the car to the highest suspension setting.
  • Holding down X and then releasing it makes the car bounce with all 4 wheels in the air.
  • Repeatedly tapping the X button results in small continuous bounces.
  • Using the steering wheel joystick in tandem with the various X button tapping patterns results in the car bouncing about its rear axle, front axle and also about its sides.
  • Players can also perform angular bounces by just changing the angle of the steering joystick.

For Xbox One:

  • Hitting the A button once raises the car to the highest suspension setting.
  • Holding down A and then releasing it makes the car bounce with all 4 wheels in the air.
  • Repeatedly tapping the A button results in small continuous bounces.
  • Using the steering wheel joystick in tandem with the various A button tapping patterns results in the car bouncing about its rear axle, front axle and also about its sides.
  • Players can also perform angular bounces by just changing the angle of the steering joystick.

For PC:

  • Hitting the X key once raises the car to the highest suspension setting.
  • Holding down the X key and then releasing it makes the car bounce with all 4 wheels in the air.
  • Repeatedly tapping the X key results in small continuous bounces.
  • Using the steering wheel joystick in tandem with the various X key tapping patterns results in the car bouncing about its rear axle, front axle and also about its sides.

  • To make the front wheels bounce, players must press the X key and the Left Shift key or the NumPad 8 key.
