I only waited total about 3 min for my car to lower, so I bet I can get lower...
on the stock back sensors, I only have it half way, so if I adjust the stock rears and combine with datasystem, will it lower even more..
God, I am so excited!!

I wish I can read the Japanese manual, but I can only recognize Kanjis, so didn't really get the whole meaning.

sure here you go
http://www.clublexus.com/forums/ls460-ls460l-and-ls600h/323141-couple-of-pictures-of-my-ls460l.html

i can't wait to see the lowest it can get, especially you guys adjusted the leveling rod already. i didn't touch the leveling rod on the ls460l, with that i might be able to do lower

So Now I am afraid to drive over 60..

I think you need to redo the set up procedure for the controller. My "Height Hi" light used to turn on randomly while I was driving. I rechecked the settings and found that it had been set to the wrong car. Once I got it set to the right car...no problem.

As far as lowering while driving, just turn that feature off. It's been awhile since I played with my settings so I don't remember what the procedure is but there is an option to turn that on and off.

jon1688,

You ever figure out how to adjust the TEMS setting? The shock firmness setting?

OK, got my translation back from my Japanese friend.

We've been deceiving ourselves - The speed sensor setting is just an alarm or warning. It does not stop your car from lowering at the preset speed. You can turn on or off the warning flashes or beep only. Your car should lower at 90km/h about 20-30mm which is 3/4" to 1-1/8".

TEMS - is only available on certain year cars and my 2004 is not one of them that's why it does not show on any display.

Thats if for now.

I guess I gonna press "high" when I drive on the highway.


SO how about disconnect the speed sensor behind the glovebox... will it work?

Guessing with common sense, it would work, since the controller don't know the speed.
