That is correct sir. Hence the 16k 18k rates. Still have enough adjustment to go very high with the height. I wouldnít think the ultra low setup has a different designed perch though.

The rear height adjuster sits on the perch. And since it threads through the perch, its only on the raised portion. Sounds like its even worse for the perch!

Re: Tips for first time aligning m3 myself

Ive had these lights light up before but went out on their own. I read codes with my code reader and I donít believe angle sensor even through a code. Is there something to clear or do?

Re: Tips for first time aligning m3 myself

I was unaware gas level mattered for alignment, I thought that was corner balance? The tank was about 1/4 full. And Sorry but what do you mean by ballast?

Both methods tried, it was a royal pain in the ass!! But I figured thinking about how small that increment is in reality It would be alright.

Re: Opinions: Beisan vs. Dr. VANOS

I have updated oe. But while you brought it up does anyone understand why Dr. Vanos sells inner and outer? Are they both needed, usually its just the outer ones replaced no?

I always seen it has beisan being more of a diy, where as Dr. Vanos, you buy already put together for the most part. 2 years on their vanos unit, no issues.

Re: Fortune Auto rear height adjustment

Ideally yes. A couple threads off wont make or break you though. Unless you are going for perfect corner balance
