    1991 c126 560 rear springs/ sls question

    I'm fitting lowered springs to my sec, my question concerns the sls and set up after springs are installed.
    Right now I believe that my sls is set up correctly in the "neutral" position. After I fit the lowered springs ( approx. 2" drop ) will the sls just stay as it is...as in no adjustment needed just car sitting 2" lower or will car still sit high and require the sls adjusting down to its "new" height???
    Thx

    If you set the car to neutral “after” you replaced the springs then the level
    Should be where you like it. You should have a full gas tank or 200 lbs in the trunk, get the car to temp and idle a bit high, 10k-15k and cycle up or fill the struts, then after several minutes, drain to the level you like and return to neutral on the valve and adjust the length of the shackle accordingly.
