Just got my new 08 LR3 and I'm looking forward to this mod. One question I have is whether there is an override so that the car does not auto-lower the suspension at such a low speed. I had the car offroad this weekend and that auto lower feature is a real bummer. Couldn't go down a fastish stretch without the height dropping.

No the vehicle will still lower but with the height sensor mod you will lower into Off road mode so it is no big deal.

The speed signal is controlled by the ABS module and affects many systems, I'm under the understanding that it can't be changed safely. The rod modifications are a trick around this by making it think it's in normal height at(around) offroad height. Some are coming out with adjustable rods, now which I think is neat, and a guy in AU is prototyping a control switch that you can adjust from inside the cabin.

The adjustible rods sound cool but If you want to go to stock setting you still will be swapping out the arms. I am back n forth about the adjustable arms once you know where you want them you are going to just leave them there, so why have the adjustment, it is somthing that may get out of adjustment. I am on the fence about them right now. So I will stick with the non-adjustable version for now.

He might notice when he has to get a step stool to climb in...

That's why I can't do it (yet) to my wife's LR3.

You can do it my wife had a hard time figuring out if it was on or not. One day she asked me, do you still have the lift on? I swap it out when I am not hitting the trail. That is what is so great about the mod; you can return it to stock in less than a half hour. So you can have your lifted trail rig and keep her happy at the same time. That is a rare thing my friend, dosen't get much better than that.

It took me 7 minutes to change them out last time around. I put them on when heading to the trails and off for the daily driving.
