    the suspension goes up and down fine and quick.no lights on the dash.drives great.no apparent leaks.
    however the n/s front seems a good 50mm too low.it was parked for a few weeks on a slant.

    My n/s/r looks a little low and pulls to the left, i actually think my crossover valve is suspect, although i would have expecred it to throw a fault.
    When i got it 9 months ago it felt very stable, but within a few days the n/s/r felt sloppy, but would sort itself if you violently shook steering.. I have sort of got used to it as it goes up and down ok. If valve is culprit then o/s/r will interact with n/s/r, which should only occur on highest setting... at up to 12mph, so unsure here, no doubt it will be something else rather than my feeble diagnostic skills. I too maty try a re-calibration.
    Good luck and keep us all posted. SaintV8 is worth listening to btw.

    Be careful measuring MOTORWAY heights, i think i may get rollerboots on and get er iindoors to drive at 70mph, not looking forward to it.....

    Are you mad? Im sure the airbags have memory foam in them so you must always park on the level, how would you lke to be left on a slant for three weeks, :D

    DISASTER
    took down my friends garage who has just been getting some dealer level diagnostics.put it on did the measuring went through the cycle,it reset all was good.set off back home and bing on came 30mph only suspension fault.it all nice and level but now wont go up and down.
    i suspect we did something wrong.i put another machine on to try and clear the faults but it has one left in saying ecu internal fault.

    I've seen some of your posts and overlooked the banality and lack of wit..... maybe you lost your sense of humour when you left these shores, or maybe its in that big beard that needs a good yank.

    Get it on dedicated LR Diagnostics i.e. Faultmate, Lynx, All Comms, IIDTool etc and do the calibration again....

    If the process isn't followed through correctly it can corrupt the height set points...

    Sometimes during the calibration the height sensors are moved to a position thay haven't been to in a while and it drags crap onto the wiper surface which interrupts the height sensor signal...

    Try the calibration again on LR dedicated Diagnostics and see what happens.
