    Cut a coil off the fronts and reset ride height sensor on the rear.

    2-3 hrs, free, better cornering. Can't get any better than that..

    On the watts link above the rear axle drivers side. There is an 8 mm nut and an 11 mm nut. Loosen only the 8mm (IIRC) and slide it to the left. Don't forget to turn off the air ride prior to adjustment so it doesn't accidentally sit on you..

    Yeah. You can raise or lower the ride height with this adjustment.

    How much change can you get by adjusting the ride height sensors plus or minus?

    Up to 2 1/2 to 3" depending on how high it is when you start!

    BETTER cornering! I didn't notice much difference when I cut mine years ago. I will say that when I installed the Monroe severe duty shocks, it was link finding the missing link.. BEAUTIFUL ride quality!

    Cut springs don't detract from the ride quality - I removed 1 1/4 coils off of the top of the OEM springs in '06 and they have been smooth riding. The QA1 springs that come w/their front coil-over shocks are garbage (so are their shocks).
