Default Lowering a 93 Ls400 with OEM Air Suspension

I know you can lower ls400s with stock air with a controller but is there any other way to do it? I have seen one guy say something about the sensor links but was wondering if anyone else had any advice. Also, the suspension towers are behind the backseat with OEM air right?

yes you can trick the OEM suspension to think the car is regular height by shortening the height sensor links. be warned, doing this will shorten the already old and dying air suspension components, bags, compressors, etc.

and yes to access the rear towers, the back seat needs to be removed.

Tim is totally right ^.

Your old suspension will definitely blow out shocks over time, but this doesn't mean you can't do it for a quick fix.

Datasystems is a company that produces a controller for the LS, that other members have used before. As said, just be prepared for blowing your shocks, make sure to drive at about stock height, park slammed. All good.

How do you change the OEM sensors? Does anyone know how? I can't find a thread or a tutorial on how to do it.

Also, for the data systems I can not find a link to actually buy it. Also will the suspension blow if I'm on data systems when driving around slammed or will it only blow if I change the sensors? If I do blow my suspensions anyway I will just get Coilovers anyway.
