Default ELC adjusting rod.. what spec?

I've got an idea I'm thinking of trying and may be changing the rod that is used for adjusting the ELC height.

Does anyone know the size, length and thread pitch of the adjusting rod?

You don't adjust the round rod with the knuckles. You adjust the position of the flat rod on the sensor itself. Do it by feel and a ruler. Measure before, during, and after. It takes time for the car to cycle between adjustments.

Techinfo.

Yup. That rod is actually not adjustable. It'* just a link. It'* tricky and should take a little time and a few iterations.

I like to crawl under the car on an old blanket, and raise my knees. I let the rear bumper cover rest on my thighs so I can feel the car going up or down. It helps to have a helper to cycle the ignition and re-set the ELC level sequence after each adjustment.
