Hi GuruWYX, nice 4x4 you've got yourself! I'm pretty sure that on the top end Landcruisers from that time you could specify adjustable dampers (shock absorbers) which could adjust the ride quality. In normal mode it's just that. In Sport mode the dampers will have a firmer setting which would lead to less bodyroll when cornering quickly. However, after 21 years I'd be pretty sure that the shock absorbers would be pretty worn out (assuming it's on its original ones) and you might not notice much difference when you press the button. It's also possible that during the car's life it will have had the shock absorbers replaced with a normal type (ie. ones that don't adjust) as the original adjustable ones would have been expensive to replace. Hope this helps! Bob
