I want to change my oil but I hears I have to disable or turn off some type of air ride? I have a 05 3.2 C6. The guys were saying that if I dot disable the thing it ruins the system that pumps air into the shocks?

I could be terribly mistaken but I am under the impression air ride was not even an optional upgrade on your car.

Maybe it's not air ride but I heard it ruins the shocks or something. Everytime I go over a bump I hear air pressure. Hm

I jacked up my car a few times and never experienced any issues before I installed my coilovers

i think the a8's only have the air suspension unless your in a different country and outside of the usa...

It was an option on A6 4.2s. But something like 2% only ever had them, so it's extremely rare.

I have a 3.2. I seen small little levers attached to the axles (looks like they are plastic?) must be for the stability?
