I am not into car modding so don't laugh: wouldn't tire rub against Lexus body when it is dropped an you are on uneven pavement? It looks like there is almost no clearance.

Re: Quadra Lift

With aftermarket wheels or larger tires it may, but when raising or lowering the airbags you are only utilising the amount of wheel travel build into the system from factory.
So, if it doesn't rub (and no car should with factory components) at full droop or full compression regardless of steering lock, it won't rub.

You are my new friend.

The other places I have been, I wouldn't have been able to tell what was what, in regards to Quadra-Lift.

But if ONE MORE PERSON CALLS QUADRA-LIFT, "Air Ride", I might lose my job out of frustration.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That they are, but the point is this...

It's called Quadra-Lift.

Or heck even call it the "Air Suspension".

But please, not Air-Ride. It's not a Lincoln or Cadillac.

They were obviously not listening during orientation when they were telling us all the details about the vehicle. (All of which I already knew)

Re: Quadra Lift

Can a Jeep with Quadra-Lift be lowered to the maximum down position and then driven a few feet, like into your garage? I am a little worried that the antenna sticking up will hit my garage door when I pull in the garage. If you can lower it all the way for entry and exit of your garage it would help.

All the way down I believe is park mode. However as the engineers mentioned the antenna bends and is flexible so if it does hit you still should be ok. Maybe someone with quadra lift can give some input.

According to the manual, yes, but you need to activate it manually, and then it returns to normal ride height at a certain speed.

From the manual, page 373:
Quote:
Park Mode (Lowers the vehicle approximately 1.5 in
(38 mm) – This position lowers the vehicle for easier
passenger entry and exit as well as lowering the rear of
the vehicle for easier loading and unloading of cargo.
To enter Park Mode, press the “Down” button once
while the vehicle speed is below 25 mph (40 km/h).
Once the vehicle speed goes below 15 mph (24 km/h)
the vehicle height will begin to lower. If the vehicle
speed remains between 15 mph (24 km/h) and 25 mph
(40 km/h) for greater than 60 seconds, or the vehicle
speed exceeds 25 mph (40 km/h) the Park Mode
change will be cancelled. To exit Park Mode, press the
“Up” button once while in Park Mode or drive the
vehicle over 15 mph (24 km/h).
