Hey Subie lovers. My rear SLS on 07 SG XT is leaking and I'm converting to non-self leveling with wh performance in Johannesburg. I've looked through relevant discussions but haven't been able to find what the difference will be between SLS and non-SLS. Particularly with carrying heavy loads- will the non-SLS in the rear cause the car to tilt to the back when traveling with heavy loads? Compared to the SLS that is designed to maintain ride height with heavy load.

Thanks
Hamza

Hi Kevin. Thanks for the reply

The setup will be KYB shocks with stock non-self leveling OEM coil spring ordered from japan

This was an option when the cars came from the factory but not sure how this setup compares load bearing wise with SLS

If you have a heavy load, then yes, it probably will drop the rear a little. I originally went from SLS to KYB and raised King springs.
