Question Adjusting the ride hight?

Hi guys,,

Just got my car today from the dealer after replacing the right front suspension mount, the car sat a bit higher than usual!!
Can the dealer adjust the suspension by programming it to sit lower? or at least bring it back to its original state?.

Thanks.

Why did you need your suspension mount replaced?

The right side was making noise when turning the steering. The issue has been resolved but I feel the car needs to be lowered by 10mm.

haudimal is on a distinguished road
Donīt know if you have new parts installed, but my 997TT lowered about 10mm while the first 10.000km.

Maybe this will happen to your front axle, so everything will be fine in a few 1000km.

It will be fine after a while, the more you drive it the more it will lower it self as the springs get used to the cars weight.
