Lowering a Overland with Quadra Lift

I have tried researching around these forums and online and called couple of shops but no luck. Does anyone know if and how and maybe where I could get the QL dropped a couple of inches? The Chicagoland area doesnt really seem to have anyone that does it or knows how to do it. I do not want to replace it with shocks I would keep my QL. I am willing to even drive few hundred miles to a shop or something.

Email these guys

Llams PTY LTD

They make a kit for our Jeeps which gives you control over the Quadralift system. You can keep it in Aero/Sport mode or even lower if you want with a selector switch you install.

Yup, I want to say its $350 retail or somewhere near that price. The kit installs under the driver seat, only tricky part is you have to install the mode switch somewhere. If memory serves me right there are 5 modes, lowest which will air it down past load level, low, auto (stock) off road 1 which will keep it high, and off road 2 which will max it out regardless of speed. In all modes the truck will still go into Aero mode at speed, so if you have it at lowest mode, it will basically drain the bags and it will not make for a great ride. You can also adjust the lowest mode by 10mm.

Thats actually easier and more practical than i thought. I love the prt about being reversible where you can just unplug it and take it to the dealer for service. What does he mean by "suspension will fault" if you put LLAMS on high while in OR2? Will the airbags blow up or will it just stop at a certain height? Thanks for you help!! When will you receive yours?

I believe it will stop and not exceed the shocks limits as it is a closed system.

Mine is in-transit somewhere between Australia and LAX or LAX and Colorado. Graeme said to let him know if I hadn't received it at the end of two weeks.

When you are in OR2 and set the controller to add more height it will exceed the sensors max height so it will give you a fault. Its not good for the bags but they will not blow out. The truck will ride like a Red Wagon because your suspension will be maxed out so no give.

I got you i see how that works now.. I dont think i will ever really need to ride it that high anyways since i dont go offroad with it but i wonder how the ride will be with uninflated airbags. Like a horsecarriage? Hmm.. Im waiting on my rims to come in then i will order the LLAM system. I just hope it wont rub..

If you ride in lowest mode its a bit bumpy but not awful. Highway speeds have a tendency to smooth things out vs low speed feeling every bump. Its not as smooth as the next lowest setting or auto mode but its not log truck by any means.

Re: Lowering a Overland with Quadra Lift

If your handy PPT is not very difficult to lower the system with minor modification to the factory QL sensor links. You can also order adjustable links to lower as well. I dropped the back end of my summit in about an hour by shorting the rear sensor links. It has zero rack now and once you have it the way you want you won't wanna mess with it much after.

I wouldnt mind seeing how you did it, I would like to do the same remove the rake from the stock setup. The controller wont do that.
