the springs have to be soft for the system to work, so you cant put lowered springs in it.
trust me, i really dont mis my sls. im running pedders low and standard monroe shocks all round, and will be replacing the shocks soon with the short items. i tow quite a lot so i have had a large towbar tongue made to keep the trailer at a level height.
i remember when i had my sls hooked up with super low spirngs, as soon as you turn the car on it would go from dumped up to 4wd (well maybe not that much but enough to notice).
ditch the sls its pure crap. they dont last long and if you want to go low then get rid of it.

all you would have to do is move the potentiometer from the watts link to inside the cabin so you can manually move it - but its got a time delay so it would take ages to get teh back up and down.
as LowSmoothNC said, you can adjust the rod so the car thinks its at the proper height when its actually 2" lower than it should be - just play around. you need to move the lever down more, so the car thinks that it is sitting very high, and compenstates by dropping the back to what it thinks is 'normal' but is actually lower than stock...if you follow that :S

Problem is, the lower it is, the less pressure is in the system. Making the springs more susceptable to bounce and, less effective. Listen to anyone who tells you to replace the shocks with normal gas ones. But if u want to persevere with the SLS, i've got working spare parts. Pump, lines, shocks, control module... PM me if u want/need any of these.
NC2 - with all the bells and whistles of course...
I have set mine lower, and no problems, has enough pressure in the system, no bounce, and all the rest of it, the only thing to remember is that rod does not wind in all that far, and the ends are plastic and can break, so you have to cut the bar shorter to lower it.
My car's rear end will sit just above the tyres, like super lows when the SLS has bled down, so I have set the bar to raise it to about low height, and have had no problems with handling etc, I had 3 people in the car, 60+ kg's camping equipment in the boot, and drove a 300k round trip.
I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think
