Hello all

I am planning on putting in a order for Discovery this spring so have been spending some time here in the forms reading up on the SUV.

In one post I read and I think it was this section, someone mentioned briefly that that could bring the car to the dealer and for $100.00 they could do something to raise it up a bit more then normal?

Am assuming and for that much this is done via something with one of the computers and its control over the suspension.

So was just wondering if this was true and it anyone could explain a little more about it so I could ask my dealer if they would do this before I take delivery.

Thanks greatly for any help

Are you sure you are looking at the Discovery Sport ?

The optional air suspension feature is only available on the full sized Discovery coming out in 2017. The new Discovery is NOT the Sport - the new Discovery took over the full sized LR4.

The full sized Discovery has an optional air suspension for $1500.
With air suspension, you can raise or lower the car as needed for off road, highway travel, getting in/out. Pretty nice option if you are older and have back or leg problems - I had one on an LR3 but won't get one now because the maintenance/repairs on the air suspension is expensive.

BTW for $100 at a service dealer shop to modify suspension is unheard of - their hourly rate is $140/hour.

Why would you want to mess with the Sport's suspension height ?
The center of gravity is already high enough...

If I were to make any suspension adjustments, I'd lower it just a bit (I spend majority of time on the road - not off) - my personal opinion. From what I understand, there is no easy way to adjust suspension - up or down - on the DS. Involves swapping parts and many $$$.

The air suspension on the LR3/LR4 is quite awesome. I would never get rid of it. And, it's really not that troublesome. A long way from the old Range Rover Classic air suspension days.
And the other posters are right, the Discovery Sport does not have an option for air suspension.

Lastly, I could see $100 being reasonable if it did have air suspension. It's a quick computer hookup and punching in a couple values and that's it. Most people do this via an IIDtool they buy themselves though, or adjust the suspension with longer rods that articulate the height sensors.

But again, none of this applies to the Discovery Sport.

I'm sure someone will sell some lowering springs for it one day.
