I've been thinking about this and I can't work it out... How does a raised spring work with a self-levelling strut, which "pulls" the length of the rod to the same position?

The only thing I can think of is if the strut rod is extended (??)

No your right. When I went to book the Forry in today for my springs and lift to be installed (my leave at work was approved) I found out I have to get new rear struts/shocks to replace the self-leveling rear sh*t Not happy now thats gonna add another $400ish to get them done

Least I will be happy with it all though when its done.
