the height sensor. it is located in the front of the left rear wheel wheel. it has an arm on it that attaches to the lower control arm and that tells it when to turn on or off the compressor

not really unless you either lengthen or shorten the rod on the sensor

QUESTION my o.e. compressor is by passed was like that when i got the car one rear shock is blown and the other is fine i have to put air in manually but it leaks right out and the air lines are new i would rather have the o.e. set up so what is the first step i should take besides replacing the air shocks to get everything working properly
