My 06 LR3 doesn't seem to want to raise via the air suspension. With that being said, it isn't throwing any error codes and runs fine as is. Should I be worried about getting sidelined? I am absolutely OK with the spring conversion.

Does the truck say “raising” when you hit the lift button?
Does the compressor run (can you hear it?)

the air suspension seems really daunting but after learning how it works, it’s actually pretty simple to troubleshoot any pneumatic issues. Electrical ones can be tricky, but that’s true for any electrical gremlin not just suspension.
I would suggest making a determination of pneumatic or electrical fault before lumping it and getting coils.

I can hear air pumping, but I don't see anything that says raising. Nothing happens.

I should’ve asked if you have the 4x4 screen lol. If you hear the compressor running but the truck doesn’t raise or lower, it should eventually error out and complain.

I'll check it when I get home. I initially thought this was user error, but I don't think so.

OK, I had my wife stand outside the truck. I press the up button, and the truck raises. At that point the down button doesn't work. to lower the vehicle, I have to drive above a certain speed and it warns me it will lower. Then it lowers. Is this by design?

If you have an LR code reader, I would view live data and make sure the ATC computer is registering the “lower” switch input.
It’s in prime location for liquid damage

I will do that thanks so much !
Not sure you found your answer but its the raise lower switch. Mine does the same thing. One of these days I'll spend the money to buy the replacement and tear the center consol apart.
BUT remember to alert the tire place when they rotate tires your, to drive it around to lower the car ( above 20 mph for several hundred feet) before driving it onto the alignment ramp.
Alignment in the raised position will eat tires. You'll know they haven't when you climb in the car and it is in the raised position when you get it back

If it’s anything like mine, you’ll have to exceed 25mph for that several hundred feet.
I wonder if the inverse of that statement is true... I just got my proud rhino lift rods and was wondering about realigning after install. I plan on doing most driving in what the truck will think is access height so that should keep the geometry closer to normal than the 2.5” lift
