So I've successfully changed my SLS strut that was leaking oil everywhere, and all seems well... but I have one question. I followed Peaty's guide but I suddenly wondering HOW the Foz adjusts the height of the strut :crazy: I don't seem to have disconnected or connected anything electrical that would get the strut to pump itself?

Or am I really that dumb and missing something obvious :N_poke: ?

When the strut moves it pumps up the pressure in it to hold it at standard height. It's all self contained. They don't really adjust height, they just increase pressure to keep it at the normal height when the rear is loaded down.
