    Question Rear air suspension adjustment

    I recently bought a 2003 marauder and I was wondering how to lower the rear air suspension two inches. I recently saw a webpage about a marauder and the guy had lowered his two inches. Unfortunately I could not ask him how he did it. Can anyone tell me how to do it?

    1. Shut off the air ride suspension in the trunk.

    2. Loosen the nuts on the air ride bracket on the driver's side watts link and slide it 1/4" and retighten the nuts. (I think you move the bracket towards the center of the car to lower it)

    3. Turn the air ride switch back on.

    4. with the trunk closed and all doors shut, turn on the ignition key and wait about 20 seconds. The system will adjust the level of rear suspension.

    I think you need to slide the little adjustment arm towards the wheel.. to make it go down..

    Is it hard to adjust the ride height I'd like to raise mine a little


    You can do it on your back in the driveway (if your'e skinny enough ) in the matter of moments with 8 and 10mm socket.

    I think it's 8 and 10....?

    Make sure to mark the existing location of the slide with a sharpie.

    A mere 1/16" either way makes a big change.

    Hop in, turn the ignition, jump out out and watch her move up or down.
