Self Levelling Suspension... are the springs your after to suit SLS or not to..

Correct me if I'm wrong but your model will more than likely have SLS

alright now i get ya.... Ok... Under the car it has a little Motor shaped device, with an arm on it, end of arm is a balljoint. On the diff is TWO struts(?) One as a Balljoint on it.... BUT there is nothing between the motor thingy n the strut....

My guess was it was for Abs... to tell the car where the weight is in the car while under brakes.

The car is a 99 NL fairlane Ghia... It has a XR6 motor... Hope that Helps me! haha

Thanks Mate

See if the fuse has been removed for it, if it has then they've replaced the shocks and springs with std.
Probably an easy way for you is drop the back seat down and remove the plastic cover, see if it has the lines screwed into the top of the shock.

Anyway, seeing as you're replacing the springs, if it has SLS then replace the shocks with std jobs and piss off the SLS.

I thought it was to do with abs is... I believe that that person who owned it before me was towing a caravan or horse float... Just because if the back was draggin than under heavy brakes the front would understeer?

Anyway so i should check the top of the shock? for lines? what kind of lines you talkin about?

I haven't got the car yet, it's gettin a RWC n i should have it by friday... I just want to F**K off these Hard as springs in the rear....

Thanks

I'd say he already removed it if he was towing.
They're basically small plastic lines and they're screwed onto the top of the shock.
Just open the fuse panel, whenever i've fitted the std setup i just pull the fuse out for the SLS, otherwise the light on the dash will annoy the s**t out of you.

So there is no point in having the SLS?

thanks
