Resetting air suspension after shock change


Recommended Posts

I have a Discovery 2 with air suspension and recently the shock absorbers were replaced. Ever since the change the ride has been very choppy. With the new shock absorbers the car sits about an inch higher than before.

With that difference in height should the garage that fitted the shocks have reset the air suspension?

Is there any way I can check?

If they didn’t reset the suspension would that explain the poor ride?

Changing the shocks should have no bearing on the ride height at all - this is determined by the ECU adjusting pressure in the springs according to the height reading coming out of the two height sensors.

I would have a look at the height sensors and see if there is damage and also check the suspension isn't topped out or bottomed out but the difference in height would be a lot more than 1 inch if this were the case.
