  • Air Ride Problem ?

    Every time I drive over 60 MPH and come to a stop the air ride compressor kicks on .

    That's normal. The car lowers at highway speeds and raises back up when the speed drops back down.

    The suspension is programmed to do a number of things automatically. The vehicle has two different ride heights. The first is the parked height. This is the the height the car rests to when parked. To account for the weight of passengers and luggage, the car has a predetermined height that it will raise to when making height corrections. When you get in and drive the car, it raises 20mm above where it was sitting when parked. If you accelerate to 105km/hr (~63mph), the vehicle drops 20mm for a more stable high speed profile. As soon as your speed decreases to ~45mph, the vehicle raises 20mm. When you park the car and shut the last door, it drops 20mm down to parked height.

        Not me, glad I went to springs & shocks. I purchased the 1.5" drop front & back then took another coil & a half off the front springs. Love my look & it's 24/7/365

          Well I love it I actually have a full set of NOS air springs front and rear with sensors If my current suspension fails I'm good to go.FYI it is possible to lower the ride height on a a Mark without going to springs.

            LOL, I love how Dodge thinks they're so cool advertising the air suspension that raises and lowers their pickup trucks!

              Yes. you can adjust the height. loosen the sensor mount and move it up or down. i think you need to move up to lower the car.

                You can also install an override switch system like ASHAM8. Same people have fabricated their.

                  Or you can do the Kale mod here:

                  Also for the rear height sensor, you bring it down (extend it) to lower the rear.
