best way to trick the elc... Just disconnect the sensor linkage, and adjust accordingly. Rogue'* car was a rock in the back, and jacked sky high...

The best way shouldn't have to make you remove the tire to re & re the sensor linkage.
The best way would be from a driver seat activated switch.

You could disconnect the factory linkage, and hookup a **** or somesort, to an actuator. Hook the actuator to the elc sensor arm, and adjust on the fly Kinda like cheap air bag suspension.

No, actually I was thinking about having everything function normally as an automatic leveling device but have a toggle switch to over-ride and be able to pump up to the max....or lower to the min., like I am able to now manually because something has failed.

Messing with the sensor arm is ridiculous when it just takes a couple people to trick it with weight and pulling a fuse.

A switch is even simpler.

Its not ridiculous, infinite adjustability has plenty of merits but i'm done arguing.

The sensor arm is a BITCH to get right again when you're done. Look at the setup on it. I've been that route before after lubing the joints on the rod, and it wasn't fun. It'* a trial and error process.

Have 3 people sit on your open trunk lid. Wait for the ELC to adjust the rear strut pressure up to compensate, then pull the ELC fuse before they get off. Helps with weight transfer.
I didn't have to have anybody sit on the trunk, I don't think Todd did either, he showed me just to unhook the arm and put it at the lifted position. Worked like a charm. Todd'* was jacked real high, mine was little lower do to my stereo. still was nice and high though

The 92-99 setup is a bit different. It'* not really practical on ours, as getting the adjustment right is a VERY sensitive process afterwards.

Disconnecting the arm from the sensor pivot to the A-arm might work, but you'd have to tie the sensor in order to keep it from bouncing as you go down the track.

I'd rather throw a switch than crawl under the car.
