    Suspension adjustment nausea!

    So, I was at a traffic light today and decided to try adjusting the suspension. It really nauseated me! It feels very odd the way it adjusts the front and then the back, and if you look in the rear view mirror while it is doing it you feel like you are on a boat with choppy seas!

    LOL ... Im not quite sure its that bad... but at least you dont notice anything while you're driving ... and once you find that happy setting, you'll only change it from time to time.

    Me: Doctor, my arm hurts when I do *this*.
    Doctor: Don't do that then.

    I've raised the suspension while in park to high and it felt like you slowly glided up, almost hard to tell. Is there maybe something wrong with your air suspension?

    It doesn't always go straight up or down. I've observed this in my car and store cars.

    If you move from standard to high or very high, the car will raise alternating the back, then the front. This is the behavior I observe on mine.

    This is what my DS told me was normal as he demonstrated the feature. A bit weird IMO but it works.
