Read a bit ahc info here on the forum, and you'll see how it works.Hey there. New to the group. just got myself a 99 Lx470. Love her. This question may have been run ragged over the years but here goes... My question for this thing is; can you put aftermarket coils, shocks, and uca without deleting the ahc? For example.. the 2.5 medium load kit from old man emu. Can you put that on the rig and still run the ahc? If not.. why? Again. New to the lx family. Bear with me.
Short answer is no.
With ahc, the coils and TBs take about half of the load, and the gas springs (accumulators, globes) take the other half through the shocks (which are not actually shocks even, just hydraulic rams). So, if you put OME springs on which take the whole load, the ahc will not work anymore, and you also have no damping.
