The MkIIIC's suspension is unique for its "Riley Rocker" arrangement of the spring and damper.  Typically the spring/damper are combined into one unit.  The Riley Rocker splits the two units which makes adjustments easier (allowing for pit lane adjustability) as well as the giving the engineer the ability to make adjustments to one that does not effect the other.
