Alrighty so yesterday I posted that at work I ran out to the range to grab something out, it was -5F to 0F yesterday, and the rear was to the bump stops.
I started it up and it jumped right back up and never went back down but I noticed the back seemed to be sitting a little lower than usual, at first I thought the back was just going back down again, it wasn't....

So here is what I've got, its still colder than a witches tit outside, the air susp is working fine but the rear starboard side airspring is sitting about an inch or two lower than the other 3. I haven't measured but its noticeable. It raises up and down from offroad to access but at each hieght its just a bit lower than the rest.
I read in other posts about the cold messing with the height sensors, anyone have any history with this?
Am I in need of a calibration now because of the cold and sinking to the bumpstops yesterday? Is there some way I can fix this myself? Will this by some crazy chance recalibrate or right itself?

Thanks in advance

Mo

Hey doc, if you leave it for hours and return to find like clockwork the rear is low you may have a leak... It might only leak intermittently at first, you can usually hear some hissing though. If it seems somewhat isolated don't worry about it! I've noticed the air suspension does some interesting things when it's cold out.

I was just idling outside waiting for my gf to get out of work and noticed my passenger side rear was going up and down fishing for a spot to be happy with... Eventually it landed on a level I felt was somewhat low, drove home, powered down, the compressor clicks on, then two seconds later the rear pops back up to normal before I could even get to my front steps.

I don't get worry about any weird air suspension activity until its really something to worry about in the winter... It does some strange stuff in low temps, doesn't surprise me.
