Ok I have one for everyone that might have been discused or not. Most if not all SSEi'* have ride control. It makes sure the car stays level with more weight added. I was thinking the other day that if there was a way to control it manually so to use it like if you had hydralic or air bags. There must be a way to tap into the controls and maybe lower the car this way or raise(not sure why). You know like the button that you press in the car...performace or touring...well make one normally and one lowered!!!! It all sounds good ...but can it be done????????????

Yup, you could put a dial in the cockpit that acts as the ELC arm/sensor, and "trick" it into doing what you want. Just have to get one that has the same resistance, and run wires essentially.

could probably be done if you used the right wires and controls

The ELC is controlled by a manual lever behind the rear driver wheel. As the *** sags it pushes the lever up (by way of a metal link) which tells the car to raise. My guess is any fm transmitted servo controller (such as those from an rc car or airplane) could be used to adjust this lever (and thus the level) in the back.
