I have a 2011 GC Overland with air/nitrogen suspension. My question is: is there a way to set the normal ride height lower, say 3-4 inches. Yes I know you can hit the low/ park button when the jeep is moving and it lowers but when ever the speed increases above 28-30 the Jeep goes back up. I would like the Jeep to be lower constantly, it never goes off road so that is not a factor. Is lowering possible without doing mechanical changes? What I mean is it possible to do through the suspension control unit?
Thanks in advance Jim.

No. If you have an air suspension you're stuck at its mercy unless you replace it for a non air suspension system and even then dropping it 3-4" is a ton and you would have to get smaller wheels/tires for starters and who knows what else you'll need suspension wise. The Jeep is built to drive at a certain ride height, anything higher/lower can cause issues overtime. Normal height is approx 8.8" on the JGC and I don't think any SUV has a 4-5" ride height ha. Sounds like you should own a different vehicle.
