Default ELC help

My Chilton'* doesn't cover it! And my Factory Manuals aren't here yet. Is there an adjustment for the ELC sensor arm? I'm fiddling with it while I do my rear stab links, and I'd like to get a firmer slightly higher rear stance........

Any help would be greatly appreciated. 4:15pm West, I'm putting the wheel back on in under an hour.

NM, I have it in my OTHER Chilton'*. Didn't even have to crack the Haynes.

FYI, the OLDER Chilton'* that ends with 93 has the ELC adjustment, but I can't find it in the NEWER Chilton'* that ends in 99. Go figure.

A few things about ELC....there are timers involved for deflation and inflation. And only 5 of adjustment, but each degree equals 1/4" of bumper height on the rear. ELC height sensors are NOT interchangeable between models. Jim, RLD will need one of at least the same vintage. 92 and up won't work on her.

It'* tricky getting it adjusted right. I learned a bit the last couple days, and may do a Techinfo on it.
