rear load leveling suspension

Hello! I am from Ukraine (Europe). My car is GC WK2 Overland 2011 (june 2010) with non quadra lift air suspension and non rear load leveling suspension. Is it possible to change my rear shocks to rear load leveling shocks nivomat? Sorry for my bad english.

Welcome!

I do not know if you can change the rear suspension from non-load leveling to load leveling. Hopefully someone will chime in and let you know.

Why would you do so? I'm trying to avoid it at all.

Re: rear load leveling suspension

In countries other than USA you have to order you car with the Quadra lift option, or any other one like the trailer tow option and you have a 3 month wait for your car. So what a lot of us do is pick a color and take what we can, what happens is the tow bars are fitted locally and you miss out on the little goodies the factory fits like the electric brake plug, or the load levelling.

According to http://www.wk2jeeps.com/wk2_suspension.htm, there are load levelling shocks that are not part of the Quadra-lift. Under my GC WK2 limited I have the load levelling sensor but not the shocks. So after a quick google search here I am with the same question as Ukraine.

I have the old air bags from my 2006 WH/WK but don't think they will fit the new springs, so will it be spend the dollars on load levelling shocks or new air bags.

According to this thread the rear load leveling is all within the shocks, self contained, no electronics:
