Welcome to the forum. You should post this in the "show us your rides" thread.

Do yourself a favor and pickup an IIDTool instead of lowering links. It'll let you both calibrate the air suspension and resolve eas errors but also allow you to adjust the height of the vehicle.

For example on my MY12 AB I run it 35mm lower all the time but its set in the EAS computer where it still knows its proper limits and things.

I'll try my snapon scanner tmrw at the shop
I believe it has ability to program,calibrate,adapt most modules in rangies
I did couple rangies with lowering links for my buddies as that's what they wanted few years back

But thanks for info man

Like the blacked-out grills.

Curious, what kind/brand of paint did you use? Any primer?

Thanks!

Your SnapOn scanner isn't near the same as the IIDTool. You can throw the IIDTool in the glove box and use it on the road. I doubt you can adjust actual drive height with a standard OBD tool.

Lowering links are just so ghetto and can cause other issues with the air suspension aa its being fooled, doesn't really know it's lower. I mean if you're going to do it, do it right and show your vehicle respect.

Not sure why you'd think the post wasn't allowed.

Wait you a rep for iidtools or what's the deal here? I post few pics of my rangie and first thing you mention is iidtools with out knowing what tools I have or what I do for living.... I believe my snapon modis ultra has the same capabilities and more then iidtools... Lowering links are simple/quick mod man....not every guy in here has iidtools or expensive $3000+ scanner.... You follow? I showed my rangie respect by changing all the fluids... doing all the filters...full detail...upper column bypass...fresh tint....ac recover recharge...engine is so clean you can eat of it...not one leak...all work done in couple days after 11 hrs work days...now let's move on, keep your iid tool in your glove box man I'm sure you need it often ;)

Whoa. Calm down. He is not a rep for the IID tool. Maybe the MODIS can recalibrate EAS... maybe it can’t. All that said, if you have the ability, it’s better to program the ride height than to try and “fake it” using links.
Unrelated, What the hell is the upper column bypass??

Whooooooooa and who are you? His guardian angel? Wait you own iid tool too and keep it in your glove box as the other specialist,correct?
you guys make range Rover suspension look like it's a rocket science ,while it's simple principle...4 airbags, height sensors, compressor,valve block,reservoir, control module,few relays, fuses,12 v supply or am I missing something?
Recalibration or links, don't really matter my man...end result is the same
End of story, let's move on

You didn’t answer my question. What is the upper column bypass mod?

I believe the upper column bypass mod is for steering columns which either are stuck locked or unlocked. People install a toggle switch instead of fixing the steering column.

Take a deep breath.

Depending on the year, you are mostly correct in that it is not rocket scientist's but it's more than you may realize with automatic behaviours controlled by the ECU with differing attempts to stabilize the vehicle in different scenarios. By using links rather than coding the ECU (calibration can be used to adjust ride height but that's overcomplicating the job), the ECU can't compensate for those changes and you'll notice some unwanted behaviour the first time you get it up to speed and real motorway settings kick in. If you're too low that 20mm in height change may put you on bump stops which at 100mph kind of sucks. Now that would be the end of story, but probably not moving on well after that.

You're right, I don't know what tools you have but i do know you've got a bit of a defensive side which usually stems from insecurity, and you've probably a decent start on L322 mechanical knowledge. We all have something to learn.

Personally I currently own 3 L322s. If you see my vehicles you'll understand I don't believe in cutting corners. It's a personal standard, not a personal attack. No need to start throwing muffins at people who disagree with you.

EDIT: BTW I like your Rover and I did welcome you to the forum. I only suggested posting in the other thread because we have been recently updating it with fresh Rovers. More people would see it there.

Well aren’t we the fragile snowflake?!
I know of other forums that would rip you apart.
No offense. Just straight honesty.
