Land Rover Discovery’s are well known for their Air Suspension which works with the Land Rover Self Leveling Suspension (SLS) system. Love it or hate it, if you have air suspension you will want to know how to use it.
Controls for Air Suspension and Next Generation Driver
Land Rover Air Suspension consists of two Air Bags (balloons), one at each rear wheel. There are no Air Bags at the front. The vehicle dashboard buttons can raise the Air Bags for off-road ground clearance and lower them back to normal driving height. The dashboard buttons cannot lower the Air Bags, this can only be done if you have a PLIP with the suspension lowering button. These can be purchased if you do not own one. You may want to lower your suspension for attaching a hitch, boat, trailer, etc and in some off-roading conditions.
Let the vehicle raise and lower and you will be good to drive!
If you air suspension has failed and you are looking into other options check out Off-Road Discovery’s Suspension - Out with the Air and in with the Coils article. If your air suspension works well for you it is recommended to change them about every 5 years.
