    Question: Why does the OME instructions have you open the KDSS valves after the vehicle is in the rack but close them when it is back on the ground? I'll be installing Front then Rear without ever having the entire truck in the air. Anything wrong with opening the valves before lifting one end?

    No idea. I opened valves, lifted, let all the wheels hang, installed suspension, closed valves, lower vehicle. No issues.

    No, i dont have a rack at home and operate using the same method as you mentioned. I assume OME suggests it to allow full droop. My best guess anyhow.
    I could be wrong

    Thanks Willy. So just to confirm, you opened the valves, jacked one end, installed the bits, lowered the truck, and then closed the valves with no problemo?

    @OregonLC All four wheels were off the ground via jack stands. Once i was finished and lowered the truck back on the ground I had to try and cycle the suspension to even out the heights (left to right) but that's it.

    FYI, the KDSS fill and bleed process looks like a PITA.

    Good thing you’ll never have to do it...
    Unless you go past 3 turns.

    I almost did when I was using a light impact to break it free.
