Sorry in advance `)

With some beefier tires and wheel spacers, I am finding myself needing to keep the car in high mode to eliminate any chance for rubbing under severe turning or articulation.

I have a set of Arnott Gen II air springs that are less than 10k miles old. As such I don't care to buy a whole new set of Gen III springs at this point. My question is: can you plop in a half inch or inch spacer under the air spring to compensate without ill effects mechanically or with the sensors?

Thanks.

mechanically yes, sort of. you'll top out the stock shocks over speed bumps, if you go with longer shocks you'll over-stretch the height sensors.....it's a downward spiral. 1/2" should be no problem, but it won't change the height at all, you'll need to adjust the height settings in the ECU or modify the sensors.

I'm working on a complete lift kit.

I did read on the main site that you can adjust the height settings in the computer - add say 15-25 mm to the height levels at normal and high mode.

Has anyone else done this modification to confirm it? Can it be done with the common logistic equipment: testbook, T4, autologic?

How big are your tires? I have 20 inch rims on mind and I'm not having any of those problems. Before anyone start with you shouldn't put those on your rig. I still have my stock tires so I can offroad when I want.

Yes, you can do that, but I don't recommend JUST adjusting. There's more to think about.
