Lowering Module

Anyone working on producing anything like this? It's a module that is pretty much plug an play and allows you to bypass the factory suspenion settings and basically allowing you to drive around at "entry/exit height" and maybe even lower if need be. Owning a Cayenne GTS for a little bit, I know there are a couple companies that make these modules for Porsches, why not Jeeps?

examples:
Champion Motorsport - Porsche Cayenne Lowering Control Unit

Vivid Racing News » Switzer Releases New Porsche Cayenne Lowering Module

Re: Lowering Module

Although it would be cool, have you ever driven around in park mode (below 15mph)? It's horribly bouncy and would be a very uncomfortable ride. I love the look, but it would not be a fun ride. Aerodynamic mode is a good compromise of quality ride and lower ride height.

Re: Lowering Module

I would love this because then I could actually park in my apartment building's parking spots. My hood it 1-2 inches too high in park mode.

Anyone know if park height is just a computer controlled level, or something mechanical prevents the suspension for actually going lower?

Re: Lowering Module

I wish there was a "button" to go into Aero Mode at any speed without toggling "Sport" mode...

Re: Lowering Module

if you want lowered look, maybe you should've looked at a Honda Odyssey?

Re: Lowering Module

For the QL jeeps, just pull the M2 fuse and you can drive in park mode regardless of speed. Ride is the same, looks 1000% better.

Re: Lowering Module

You disable the ELSD, but I drove in light snow and the car is fine. Any more snow just put the fuse back on and everything goes back to normal.

If you are going to ride around in park mode you will need to have the veh 4 wheel alignment done in park mode and most likely there is not enough adjustment to allow for proper alignment in park mode and you will ruin your tires!!! Is it worth $$$ replacing tires prematurely to "look cool"?
