Never heard of it before, I would assume you have a light that is out but everything seems good?

By the driver's rear tire where the sway bar bolts too there is a sensor for ride height, it should be vertical and upright. Check the harness as well. Slight slight possibility that may have shifted the sensor, maybe an undercarriage wash might have made it rotate on the joint. Worth the look

When I lowered mine the Check headlight system warning light came on after install. I checked the sensor in the rear but it looks fine to me. Below is a pic What do you think?

When you guys lowered your cars did you lift headlights slightly. I thought about this the other day and wanted to ask.

They seem fine but I would always love to see farther.

After a couple of cups of coffe, my hands were itching do do stuff, so I jacked the rear up pulled the 20mm spacers off pulled extended lugs off, rolled both rear quarters and installed the back wheels
couple of bottom wheel pics have 20mm spacers on the car, it was too much for me
