Default Top Secret 00+ Launch Button !!

It seems that my air shock problem cured itself when I removed the ride level contol module rod and stroked it for a day.

Things I learned.
The normal ride height, measured from the wheelwell lip to ground, is 29".
Loaded to the hilt will settle it to 27".
The air shocks will raise the vehicle 2".
The maximum you can raise the car is 31".

Something I wasn't aware of before, but when you activate the air button inside the trunk, the compressor will come on for up to 10 minutes and pump the pressure up to the maximum. The ride level will also raise up the maximum while this is happening.

So, just before your next drag race, simply turn on the car, open the trunk to activate the compressor, then for the next 10 min you and your Bonne will be PUMPED

I have to disconnect a plug in the trunk, then hit the button. Works the same way after doing that. I've done it twice now.

If you just let the pump run with the button pressed but the link rod still in place, it will only raise to 30.5" but if you remove the rod completely and rotate the position rotary transducer fully counterclockwise, it will raise fully to 31.5".

From fully low to fully high is about 4" total. Normal is right in the middle.

When I was messing around with mine a couple months back, I found a 1/2" difference to be noticeable. After adjusting, it'* trial and error getting it back. The easiest way is to have someone else do the tweaking, so you can watch from the side.
