Eibach lowering springs and load leveling


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have a 1997 STS with load leveling rear suspension, electronic sensing up front. Overall it works well and Ilike it. I am planning on installing some 18 inch rims (keeping normal ride height) but wanted to drop the car an inch with Eibach springs.

I checked the load levelor it is attached to the body so wouldn't it try to compensate for the inch drop by lifting itself up an inch? So I drop the car, the sensor says NO and lifts it up again?

Has anyone else out there lowered their STS and had this problem?

Eibach should provide instructions on how to adjust the Electronic Level Control suspension position sensors.

Eibach told me that they provide new links for the level-ride. However I have not been able to confirm this. Everyone I have spoken with who's done the job has followed the instructions provided. They indicate that you need to bend the links at a certain point.

I'll be doing mine in my DTS soon.
