Easy-Lift Suspension Module review

Good evening guys,
as you well know I never stop tapping on my D3 and today I fitted the Easy-Lift suspension module produced by Land Rover Passion here in Italy.

The box that will come to your home looks like this:

A really nice presentation and moreover the box will remain to you as an added value! : Thumbsup:

The time to follow the mounting instructions that takes around 20 minutes and everything you see in the car will be the controller that on D3 will be positioned just behind the parking brake control on the flat plastic plate.

The box with inside the electronics will instead be fixed with the adhesive velcro (in the package) inside the dashboard under the steering wheel where the suspensions control unit is located. The module is completely plug and play and therefore reversible at any time.

Once installed, you must do the calibration at standard, off-road and access heights, (available from your Land Rover).
This is used to calibrate the Easy-Lift control unit on your car's native settings (each car has its own settings) so that it can then able to give the extra lift or lowering without exceeding the maximum parameters imposed from the suspensions geometry.

Once the calibration is complete, the control unit is ready to be used.
The central knob will light green on the rotary switch to indicate that it is ready to process the suspension height signals.

To raise the car (not with the original Land command), just turn a few clicks to the right (or left) the center rotor until one (or more) of the led arrows on the corners will light up (this indicate that it is ready to lift or low the car), at this point just clicking on the rotor will confirm the selected height and the car will rise (or lower) in a few seconds.

The main advantage of this suspension module is that you can raise the car at 3 different heights: + 35mm, + 55mm, +75mm upward and/or you can lower it by -20mm or -30mm regardless of the speed of your car (which will think you are steady at standard height).

If you then act on the original suspension control knob, you will add another 55mm to the heights upward or you will loose 50mm if you place the control knob to the "access height".

So in total you can enjoy a total raise of up to 125mm or a total lowering of 80mm (useful for getting into very low garages).

To this, the module adds 3 special programs that are activated with a simple "double click" on the rotor followed by a rotation of rotary switch (right or left) for the following functions:

Alignment Mode: It will block the self-leveling of the car when it is on the Alignment Bridge to ensure that the suspension angle values ​​remain fixed and the car does not level while mechanic makes the adjustments,

Recovery Mode: This will save you and your wallet if one of the four suspension height sensors becomes inoperative (which will result like your car drops on the bump stops under normal conditions), maintaining the standard height and allowing you to return home or bring your car to assistance,

Super Low Mode: It will completely lower the car down to the bump stops deflating the 4 suspension airbags. This mode is useful when transporting the car on trailers or when on a tow truck, as expected by the manufacturer, or to maintain the lowest height possible in order to bring the car to a very low box.

Additionally, Easy-Lift gives us a choreographic "Android" or "iOS" app that will communicate with your additional control unit (via Bluetooth) by showing them in pure Land Rover style the heights achieved thanks to the module

That's all folks, a thanks to Max Panoramix for the development and production of an accessory that I would say indispensable for our beloved 4-wheeled shoes boxes.

That looks a pretty good system.

May add that to next years upgrades.

This seems to cost similar amounts to the IIDTool but lack all of the extra functionality?

Hi Mattt, yes it costs like an iidtool, but it is a different thing.
The rise permitted is quite higher, immediate and do not require any connections to external stuff (phone or tablet). It just do what promised like an integrated ecu fixed on the car.
Yes the iidtool is capable to do similar things and moreover, but this piece of stuff is more intuitive and fast to lift your car as needed.
I've used before another brand suspension module, it was good as well but this one is more responsive and fast to reach the selected height you need.
