Sick looking ride. The dealer I've been dealing with said they could lower my car by adjusting the sensors as well. Just dont know if I want to go any lower. Its amazing what some dealers will do and what some other wont.

Dorbritz does some nice work!!!
I don't know about the AirRex, but with UAS it just depends on what coilovers you use with it to adjust how low you want to get. But I'd imagine the ride quality on the AR OTG when riding low is better.

No i wish it were so. Maybe the side skirts and bumper may rest on the ground. I think the only way to get back to laying frame would be for me to lower the coil spindles. Once i am done with the kit i can determine how much lower i am able to go. I wanna be low while parked but don't wanna have to drive 4x4 to protect my kit.

nope, so far there's no air suspension warning lights. Drew at http://www.dorbritzdesigns.com/ was able to trick the system into thinking that the stock air suspension was still connected.

below are four pics of where you can adjust the height sensors in the the following order:

- 1st pic is for the front right. This is at stock level. I had to adjust it back because the data controller was having issue lowering the front. Sometimes it would work, other times it would not. I believe if you want your car to be lowered, you would loosen the bolt, remove the tab from the hole and turn the bracket counter clockwise then tighten the bolt. I would recommend turning the bracket slightly and see how the data controller reacts to the adjustment.

- 2nd pic is for the front left. To lower your car, do the same as above but rotate the bracket clockwise.

- 3rd and 4th pics are for the rear right and rear left, respectively. I believe this is where Drew made the adjustment. I didn't play with this because the data controller worked properly with this setting. You would have to raise or lower the bolt and see how the data controller react.

The beauty of the OTG is you can lower the coils to ride low and smooth since you will be able to hit that sweet spot with out having to go into 4x4 status. Im anxious to see how airrex is going to be on our cars. OP i like the direction you are heading with this.

WOW. Clean, tasteful and most importantly, SLAMMED. How does it ride? Any issues overriding the OEM air suspension?

I'm really loving that there's more LWB with aftermarket air, it looks so good, great job.
