Air suspension question

I have noticed a few times when I have parked the front end will be a little high maybe an inch or so and then when I start the engine it will drop to normal. This usually happens after I have been driving it and and just park it for a few minutes like to run in a store real quick. anyone else notice this?

Re: Air suspension question

How long is it parked? Mine will self level in the garage about 5 mins after I have turned it off. It is also normal for it to adjust each time the car is started if needed.

Mine use to do that where after about 5 Minutes of being off the front would drop a little bit. Now it just seems to stay the same height it was when I shut it off. In most cases with the issue I was talking about I have it parked less than 15 minutes. Its not real noticable but today I stopped at a store for about ten minutes and when I came out the front looked just a little high. When I started the engine it came down to normal. Everything works though it goes to all positions.

Re: Air suspension question

I've noticed the same thing. On two occasions I have hauld heavy loads of cargo. After unloading the cargo the rear end raised up to full height. When I restarted the venicle the height adjusted properly. I used to own a Nissan Armada with a self-leveling rear suspension. I'm sure it was a very different setup...but I never experienced this kind of weirdness.

Of course the Grand Cherokee is at the dealer at the moment getting a thorough diagnosis on the quadra lift because it won't go into OR1 or OR2. The nitrogen pressure is low and they haven't figured it out yet.
