This kit is used to replace the Original Self-Levelling Suspension.. This kit is a direct bolt in replacement. NO modifications to the vehicle are required. No extra parts are required.
"Will my vehicle really be returned to its original Ride height?" Yes, definitely!
The original Self Levelling system has a much weaker spring than would normally be used to carry the weight of the car. In this application, the shock absorber has a hydraulic self levelling function built into it. This function, unlike a normal shock absorber, also carries part of the vehicle weight.
As a consequence, failure of the self levelling function is what causes the vehicle to sit low as it is now solely reliant on the spring to support the weight of the vehicle.
Pedders Suspension overcome this by supplying a matched set of dampers and springs specifically for this purpose. You can buy with full confidence that the vehicle will be the correct height and your troublesome and expensive self levelling dampers consigned to history.
If you regularly carry heavy loads or tow a heavy trailer, we do another version of this kit with stiffer springs, Pedders part number 803039. If you are unsure which kit is most suitable, please do contact one of our staff who will do their best to help you.
Please note our vehicle height measurements are based on 16 inch wheels. This does not mean it will only fit cars with 16 inch wheels. The kit WILL fit irrespective of wheel size.
Rear: 660mm with 16 inch wheels.
Notes: Heights should be measured as shown in the secondary picture.
