    ??? No it's not ?! -

    "Building on the experiences of previous systems, the new RidePRO represents a leap forward in onboard suspension controls, starting with a completely new control panel that is sleeker and brighter. The auto-dimming transfl ective display is completely visible in the sun and is only 3/8” thick. Interface buttons are backlit and have a distinct “click” to let the driver feel when he has made a change. Two mini USB connections are offered to allow a variety of panel mounting and connection options."

    We have that set up on the Airpod on Marks chevy. Seems nice, but what set up do you currently have that would benefit from that upgrade?

    The link you posted first took to to amazon which then displayed a vintage air climate control panel.

    If youre not logged in the words " control panel upgrade" come up as a link,even though you havnt put it up as a link.

    That takes you to the vintage air panel.

    I have the four independent controls and the 4 gauges never seem to go back to the same place / ride height so a control such as this would eliminate my going round with a block of wood and being anal about the ride height so as not to scrub out another set of tyres :-) Was it an easy fit do you remember?

    The Airpod comes already wired etc and all you have to do is set some parameters.



    TBH, with air there is only one position where you have the correct settings on the front end, so to a degree any playing about with heights will affect that and subsequently tyre wear.
    It's also load sensitive so gauge pressure may not always mean exactly the same height. Only wa to do that is to go for the ride height sensor package which maintains a given height regardless of what pressure/load is on the bag.
