Don't have time right now to take pics with tape measure but snapped these all from the same angle so hope it shows you what you are looking for.

Re: Want to lower your air ride / QL ?

That's great. Very detailed and good pics of the heights. I like how there are three different settings that you can use, low, medium and high.

I was bummed that there were no suspension parts for our suspension set up. But this product seems like it's better than just a normal lift kit. Still have the ability to change the ride height to multiple different levels. All those pictures are different ride heights, awesome.

Hello Jon,

"The kits are finally available. The kit is compatible with all LHD and RHD GCs including 2015 models and also the Dodge Ram, noting that a different calibration switch setting is required for the Ram due to its lower OR2 height increase. The kit can subsequently be moved to any other GC or Ram. The US price is $350 including delivery with payment by paying a Paypal invoice."

"The LLAMS kit provides the ability to raise the vehicle by approximately 32mm/1.25 or 50mm/2 whilst at Normal Ride Height, therefore without speed limitations, to allow better ground and bump-stop clearance when traveling off-road on high crown gravel roads or other off-road conditions where extra clearance is desired. Note that vehicle handling may be altered when traveling at raised heights. LLAMS can also lower the vehicle which when used with Park mode can make entry and exit easier especially for mobility impaired people. The following are the approximate height changes at NRH for the various LLAMS switch settings. Changes at other height modes may be slightly different. Attempted use of LLAMS High with OR2 on a Jeep GC will eventually cause the suspension system to fault because the vehicle cannot be raised to that extent. Speed limitations of the various modes are unchanged, eg using LLAMS high with OR1 will add approximately 30mm to OR1 height until the suspension system lowers to NRH whereupon NRH will be 32mm higher than usual. The module can be recalibrated for the same or a different vehicle, including moving the kit between a Jeep GC and a Dodge Ram.
Approximate height changes:
Low: -22mm or -32mm for Jeep GC depending on vehicle setting at calibration,
-24mm for Dodge Ram Off : no change
Medium: +32mm High: +50mm
The system modifies the height sensor signals, offsetting each of the 4 values to cause the suspension module to believe that the vehicle is lower or higher than it really is and therefore adjusts the air volume in the air- springs until the modified sensor signals are as expected for the target height. The system does not communicate with nor modify the suspension module, thereby retaining unaltered all original plausibility and control checks."

My order is being placed tonight. I'll update once I get it and get it installed - it's plug and play 5-10 minutes install and totally reversible/removable prior to trips to dealership for routine or warranty servicing.

Re: Want to lower your air ride / QL ?

I just picked up a '15 Overland High Altitude, and one of the first things I thought was I need to level & lower her. Problem, as I've learned is that it's an airbag setup, so there are limited options. I'm looking for the one that doesn't void my warranty - and since I can't put on performance springs/shocks, I'm hopeful the witech solution might be the trick. A couple questions: 1) does the reprogramming allow you to remove the rake and level it out, 2) any idea whether this leaves a ghost in the ECM that I'm going to get flagged for and potentially void the warranty, and 3) have you been able to determine optimal ride height? I like the Entry/Exit height for my normal ride height (albeit with it leveled), would I have any issues with the new settings for Entry/Exit and Aero/Sport modes if that was my default setting? I'm sure I'm screwing up some of the context without the right terminology, but suffice it to say, I'm not likely to offroad her, except for perhaps snowboarding trips in the snow where I might want to raise her to OR1, but I do a ton of highway driving and want the lowered stance/performance/stability similar to the SRT's. Thanks in advance!

Re: Want to lower your air ride / QL ?

I think entry/exit would put you on the bump stops and ride like crap. Aero mode might work, but then again may not provide enough cushion for around town driving. I have a 1500 Ram with the air suspension and wish the system would give a little more latitude as to selecting your ride height. I'm still glad I got the option though.

Re: Want to lower your air ride / QL ?

i lowered my 15' HA .75" front and 1.25" rear. the ride is still comfy with better handling around corners. exit mode is slammed though but still drivable around the parking lot. love the look.

What method did you use to lower it? Re-programming, LLAMS or linkage?

Just complete my DIY rear leveling using my homemade links. See new thread in this section with pics and info.
