Adjustable Air Ride

Q. How will the ride be once lowered?
A. The lower you go the more stiffer it will feel.

Q. Will lowering my vehicle improve the handling?
A. Yes. A lower center of gravity always helps

Q. Will the raise button inside the vehicle still work?
A. Yes. Depending how low you go, once lowered the highest setting will be approx. the same height as the lowest setting before the vehicle was lowered.

Q. Will I need an alignment?
A. Any time a vehicle is lowered it should be checked. The wheels will Camber in. With my car lowered about 1.25" I have not had it done and notice slight inside ware on the front tires. I personally like a little Camber look so will sacrifice a little tire ware.

Q. Will the ABC Sport button still work?
A. Yes. When applied you will still have that extra sporty feel.

Q. What height do you mostly drive at?
A. It depends on my mood. I find that there is such a difference between the settings now. Lowest with ABC Sport On feels so sporty yet raised all the way with Sport Off is nice and smooth. Find I use the Raise button a lot more. Before lowering would never use it, was almost like a 4x4 when raised.

Q. Can this kit be installed with basic mechanical skills?
A. Yes definitely. All that's needed is a jack, jack stands, couple wrenches and pliers. The Porsche Cayenne can be done without jacking.

Q. How low can I lower my vehicle with the Links?
A. Lower then you can possibly drive.

Q. How will the Lowering Links effect my warranty?
A. We have all heard stories how dealerships try to deny claims for any reason. Our kits have never caused any issue on any vehicle. If for some strange reason someone did have a problem with their Suspension System we recommend to remove the Links and put the stock 1's back. That's another advantage of our kit. It can be done in 30 min. and there will be no trace of it unlike Electronic Modules with cut wires.

Just replaced original links with these on My 2008 gl450.
I experimented all day long with any possible setting.
End conclusion was that original setting and links was better by far than even a slight attemt to stiffen up the kind of soft Gl suspension.
It is true that it stiffend up my suspension but they did not behave lets say like a suspension on a cayenne or toureg it was not that kind of stiff.
It was like being bounced araound inside the car on a trambolin.
Even smooth roads with rolling bumps caused heavy bouncing in just about all possible adjustment positions.
After conluding that it is hard to improve what an entire engeneering department at MB did I installed stock links back again.
Result for now, front end really high and rear end low.Tomorrow morning I shall attemt somehow to reboot the software.
Any ideas are welcome.
I have the feeling these aftermarket lowering links may do good on sedans but they sure messed up the GL.
All suggestions regarding rebooting air suspension is most welcome.
Best regards

Hello everybody I need some help. So today I received my lowering arms and the front went on easily. Although I couldn’t seem to find out where the rear links went, I called around and figured out that my 04 s500 has factory adjustment already. Anyways, the issue I’m having now is that the rear right side is a lot higher than the rear left side. Have any clue why this could be? Thanks.
