Good stuff, ain't it. Now, go get it fixed so you have more time to hang out on here and learn how to install your own DVD to work like factory.

i have a question.

this air suspension... does it only work when you are towing? the air suspension is part of the tow pack yes? its not standard right?

would you hear the compressor if it was running to pump up the bladders? obvious questions perhaps but not to me...

im speaking about a 08 LE 4X2 but with everything else....

The Tow package with the auto leveling suspension is standard on the LE. It is supposed to air up with a load and retain the air until the weight is gone then it purges the excess air. So when there is any extra weight in the back/towing you will hear the compressor come on to level out the system.

You'll likely need a couple older kids or adults sitting in the 3rd seat too. Keep in mind it takes a few secs to kick on.

If you cannot get it to kick then I'd crawl under the driver side rear near the compressor and disconnect the height sensor and hold the lever up for about a full 2-mins to see if it kicks on. Usually, it only takes about 30 secs but sometimes a little longer. The PRG install How-To has a pic in it.

It's not, just use a 10mm wrench to unbolt the bolt that says "Disconnect Here" and move the lever, then put it back when done. You don't need to adjust anything, the "Adjust Here" is only for lifting the truck. Super simple.
