Hello all!!
I need some assisstant. Does anyone have pictures to assisst me in leveling off my car.
Where'* the plastic arm. I pulled my right rear wheel off and I didn't see anything looking like a platic harm. Pls show me pictures.
I'm not an idiot but i'm not a mechanic either.
I just want to raise my rear up a little bit.

To raise the vht (turn the compressor on), move the plastic arm up towards the top of the slot, and retighten the locknut.

Under the car you'll see a black box with a pivot on it attached to a flat metal arm. That arm is in turn attached to the suspension by a small metal round arm with ball joints on the end. Very small attached to the right rear suspension.

Procedures for adjustment are in Techinfo.

If something is loose or broken, no adjustment in the world will help you. Keep in mind also that if your struts are old and leaking, you're still hosed too.
