Hi Doni (Or Sonny!)

I read through that forum post a couple of days ago. I checked the level sensor as best I could, but I didn't want to unscrew it fully because the bolts looked quite rusty and I was scared of breaking something.

It would make sense though, because the adjustment I made was tiny - probably just as if it wasn't seated properly.

I'll jack it up again at the weekend and check it out.

Thanks
Ollie

It is very easy to miss that little hole completely. Just remove the tire and you will be able to see it

After I replaced all the front suspension parts, I took my car to the dealer for alignment. The did it and when i got my car back, the front end was jacked up like yours. I noticed right away and said it didn't look right. if the back was jacked up, well...that might look ok.. but the front? The service writer said if he took it back and the car fell into specs, they'd charge me another $225 or whatever. I was pissed and just left. Then came back later and talked to the service manager. He agreed to hook it up and get it level. I still don't like going there and make a point to stay clear of that service writer.
