Is it possible to "trick" the self leveling system to lift or lower your ride??

Hello again,

The rear of my ride seems to be a bit low. I was wondering if there is a switch/sensor that could be tweaked a bit to raise it about an inch or so.

Any suggestions??

My guess is you're looking for a leak in the system.

What if you wanted to lower the ride and fit aftermarket prings etc?

You can bend the links that go down to the control arms. To lower the car I donno about raising it I thing there would be a leak or one of the links got bent or broken
