Hi
Done a search on the numerous AHC suspension problems, mine in specific being when I load up with more than 3 passengers and upto 7 onboard, or put a little weight in the rear seating area my vehicle wonít raise above the normal height level or to the highest level. Some times dropping into the low position and remaining there. I have read on numerous posts on this subject that this is normal and is not a problem. Not sure if this is correct but my question is Iím coming back from Cornwall tomorrow 260 mike trip with 5 passengers a dog and suitcases. I want to know if driving my LC in the low mode will cause any damage to the suspension system. Would really appreciate some quick replyís as Iím supposed to be leaving tomorrow morning. Thanks in advance 👍

Hi there

I noticed when I was on a three-week road trip / camping tour with my girlfriend that sometimes the truck would not lift to "H".  It would appear to try, but give up and settle back to "N".  That said, we had a roof-top tent, a load of camping stuff (too much!) not to mention the drawer system I had installed.  I reckon it was on the cusp - sometimes it worked and maybe that was just down to fuel level and perhaps variations in the ground levels at each corner.  I do know that the manual does indicate that the system will cancel above a certain load, but I don't recall the figure (or whether a figure is even stated).  

If you're stuck in the low position, well then I'd be a little more concerned about the health of the suspension system but I don't think you'd do any particular damage, not on normal roads.

HTH
