E-Level™ Air Suspension Controller: The e-levelTM controller offers the ability to save three unique vehicle heights into memory at the touch of a button using TruPositionTM Height Sensors installed in each corner of your suspension. These three heights are then instantly accessible from the TouchPadTM or Rocker Switch Interface. The key to this technology is AccuAir’s proprietary RideMonitorTM Mode; While parked OR driving, the system will maintain the vehicle height when loading or unloading passengers and cargo or when road conditions change while driving.
