The lifter kit is just a few $$ and they come in different sizes. But if you have a pneumatic leveler with problems they you'd have to fix that first - and I don't have that so I don't know.

I thought the kit replaces the pneumatic leveler?

Ah - I was talking about a lifter - you remove the spring and put this hard rubber thing on top of the old spring. It will make your spring taller by up to two inches.

The pneumatic leveler it a whole other animal with several different parts. Not all cars had them, my 115 does not. The old wagons do. They are great when they are working.

the spring kit does replace the compensator for the swing axle. this is not a self leveling system just a compensator to help stop the rear from bouncing around over bumps with swing axle only. 115 body has independant suspension fron and rear and none of them have them. the part at the end of the spring is a shim and they come in different thicknesses for minor ride height adjustments. spring kit can be done but good ground clearance and long prybar is helpful.
remove the old compensator put the spring kit up car with one bolt on the bolting bracket side then with prybar pivot bracket around to line up spring and second bolt hole tighten up and road test

First test drive.

Well i got that little retaining spring back in, bolted the wheel back on and took it for a short test drive.
It runs beautifully Shifts are smooth, brakes nicely and the power comes on like a steam train!
I'm happy.
John.
PS.... now the wax comes out
