if you still have rear air springs, then yes. Adjust the ride height sensor on watts link in front of axle on driver side. req. 8 and 11 mm wrench. only slide it small distance. 1/4 inch will do about an inch on suspension. have to cycle air ride to get it to change. I can't recall which way to move sensor towards driver side or pass. side, It is best to mark where it is now as a reference.

Hi badass mm,

Are you talking about the air suspension ride height in the rear?

I was doing some searching on here last week regarding lowering the Marauder but still maintaining a nice rake and found some info on adjusting the rear air suspension. For the front I believe people suggested after market springs or cutting the stock springs.

Check out this thread for rear air suspension adjustment. That popped up with quick search on google for "Adjusting Marauder rear air suspesnion"

Leave a car door open when your adjusting the switch

If your under the car and move the switch, the car WILL come down and smash you!

Move it towards the drivers side wheel. 1/4 should do it

So move the switch to the driver side to lower and passenger side to raise is that correct

That only keeps it from airing up
If a small guy can wiggle up in there with the car on the ground, no jack or stands, it will lower with that switch off.

Best to leave the door open so it won't lower

Always best to mark it w sharpie before you move /adjust it, so you have a basis for further adjustments.
