Hi everyone. I’m sure you have thought about lifting your Land Rover since the day you bought. Maybe even some aggressive off-road tires too. Is this possible with an air suspension? Does lifting my car void the vehicle warranty? I’m writing this to answer a few of these questions; to shed some light onto probably the most simple lift for any vehicle.
A LR4 Suspension lift can be achieved in two ways. One possibility is with software adjustments to the standard ride height. The second option is with lift rods made by Proud Rhino. Both options provide adjustments to the ride height by changing the signal created by the 4 suspension height sensors mounted on your Land Rover. Adjusting standard height a few inches up will increase the ride height a few inches. Sounds simple and really is. I haven’t seen anyone void a warranty by adjusting the ride height. Let me know if I am wrong on this one.
Personally, I prefer lifting the vehicle with software. Since I own the Land Rover Diagnostic equipment, I can make ride height adjustment everyday of the week if I so chose. The lift rods provide just one additional height option and require you to physically install each rod on each height sensor. Here are a few photos of a LR4 Suspension lift I did with software. This maybe hard to tell, but the net height change is 2 inches. You can go here with software and lift rods but you do risk bottoming out your air suspension shocks.
