08 RR Sport Suspension Compressor Replacement
I just recently bought an 08 RR Sport and it came with some undisclosed gremlins. Reading some of the forums they sound almost like features...
The suspension compressor is very loud (over the radio) and runs for some time so pretty sure it is bad.
It looks to be the Hitachi type (6 way plug and drier about the size of a coke. Is there a better way to tell?) and from all I've seen even the dealers now install the AMK when replacing it.
The vehicle is for my fiancee so won't get much offroad use aside from the odd spin on the beach or dirt road so I'm not looking to spend a whole bunch. Looked at several aftermarket on ebay for $200-300 USD. My main question is if going this route is there any point to swapping to the AMK style? It seems AMK is better than Hitachi but are the copies the same way?
I do have a Mongoose cable and software but not tried to use it yet. In theory it looks like I could reprogram for the AMK but if there's no gain I'll skip that bit.
Also watched a video on replacing (Arnott) and they seemed to go from Hitachi to AMK they did not replace the cover. Cover lid is currently missing on mine so was going to buy one.
It also has (had? added Lucas sealer) an ACE leak but I'll save that for another day.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
