Hello again,

Now my ADSII equipped R129 is up and running again, I can see that one corner - offside rear - is sitting a bit low. This also makes the opposing corner - nearside front - a bit high!

The OSR sits low when the car as been parked overinight - about 40mm lower than the NSR I would think. If start the car the ADS raises the front and then the rear, and the difference is less noticable, but still there. This is the same on either the first or second raised height setting.

I don't think the spheres have ever been changed, so will probably change those soon as a matter of course. Will/do they influence ride height? Or is it more likely a worn spring?

I think one can use HHT to set up the front and rear height, but not for each individual corner...

Regards,
Justin.

Spheres do affect height I believe.
Probably worth doing as they aren't all that expensive.
Let me know if you need STAR.
