Re: Quadralift lowering/leveling/lifting Links DIY

Not able to report good news.

Made my lowering links tonight and installed them

Immediately knew something was up because it was not allowing the vehicle to lower from jack mode.

I drove for a couple hundred feet and put it into sport mode and it lowered itself. But it wasn't happy. Soon after I got a message "service air suspension immediately".

Got out and looked and it was almost tucked on the drivers side rear. Passenger side rear was almost normal height

I literally had to jack the jeep up to access my links to which I swapped them back to stock. Even after its sitting low in the rear and high in the front.

No damage to the plastic level sensors they rotate freely


I can attest to this though, when I made the links they are solid, the ball sockets are tight. Nothing budges except the ball that sits inside. Did I have them too tight ? Should they have been free to roam to allow the sensor to adjust accordingly.

Here is a photo.

Yes I know they are not correct in the photo, I rotated one ball socket on each one till the fronts were facing and the rears were opposites.

How else would I have been able to install them.


Final question,

Should I disconnect the battery for a few minutes and see if it resets the system or does this HAVE to go to the dealer?


Thanks

Re: Quadralift lowering/leveling/lifting Links DIY

Petey, I also replied to the other thread, but see you posted here is well. Since its kind of important I will repost it here.......

"Yeah you don't want the sensor arm facing the other way that would be a big mistake as you can see. Always install just as it was from the factory.
The links are designed to have a slight amount of play as they are moving parts. They are tight enough that they require slight force to move, mine are not loose, but also not tight either. Even the stock ones can rotate if you twist with your finger. If you are talking about the actual links mine are all tightened up and secured. You cannot loosen any part of the link.
So you have a 2015 and set the front links to 5" total length and the rears to 3.25" total length and it was all messed up?"

"Ugh duuuude, I just looked more closely at your picture. You made these things completely wrong. So looking at the pic of your links you have them set wrong. The SHORTER links are the ones that need to have the open ball socket ends opposite each other. The front longer links have the opening the same way.

Ok this is how they should be set and that is confirmed to work perfectly on my 2015 HA V6:

Front link total length 5" from tip to tip. Ball socket open ends faced same directions.

Rear link total length 3.25" from tip to tip. Ball socket open ends OPPOSITE eachother.

DO NOT change the direction of the sensor arms. Not sure why you would attach it differently than how they came off anyway. Take the old ones off and put the new ones on exactly how the old ones were on. Don't go spinning the sensor arms."

When I took the photo I was still trying to twist them the same direction and had to go find some vice grips because they were getting really tight. They ended up correct before I put them on. Ended up being the 1 sensor. If one sensor is reading off it will not allow it to go up OR down. Just sits like a 65 impala on spinners.

I am going to reinstall them tonight when I get home later tonight. Will get photos as long as it doesn't explode on me lolImageUploadedByJeepGarage1457823458.543788.jpg

Re: Quadralift lowering/leveling/lifting Links DIY

Just did them again tonight.

31.25" fronts and 32.5" in the rear. The rake is a bit much for my liking. Might shorten the fronts by a twist or two to get them to 31.5 - 31.75.

The backs look good, the front a little too low.

Quick but dirty pics

Just got done with mine using the lengths everyone has recommended. Might drop it a touch more yet.

Agreed. There is no way the tears are set at 3.25 inches. Unless the sensor arm is facing inward and it's dumping the bags. The fronts might be close though. Looks good, but wow is it low lol

I think we need to know what mode you are in for that shot?

Aero?
Entry/Exit?
