Leveling Valve - With 2nd Ride Height - General

Setting 2nd ride height

The 2nd ride height can be set in accordance of the respective angle (Deflection) of each valve. The angle here refers to the deflection of the control lever from the horizontal, in degrees. The body height changes (mm) as a function of the lever length; see chart “2nd ride height”.

Inspection

  • Test for operation and leaks.
  • The pressure should neither rise nor fall at the delivery ports in the neutral position.
  • Check the linkage moves freely and is in good condition, replace if bent or welded.
  • Replace hardened or brittle rubber parts.

Maintenance

  • If defects are noted during vehicle examinations or when driving, then the unit should be exchanged.
  • When working with high pressure cleaners a distance of at least 50 cm should be observed.
  • Missing exhaust caps are to be renewed.
