Rear Suspension Calibration

Working on getting my 4.6 up and running. Rear suspension is 1" different height side to side. Using my Foxwell 510, I am able to "calibrate" the air suspension. While working on it, it references "factory settings". Does anyone know a reference to the factory settings/ride height? I will say, the 510 has been my go to tool for so much capability. I recently purchased an Xtool D8 scanner that was supposed to be one of the best out there. Will not work on BMW!!!! To anyone that does their own work, spend the money on a foxwell and you will never look back. Thanks for the help.

Don’t think the foxwell will do the E53 suspension height (rear airbag only cars). I recall reading several threads regarding this on this forum so I used InPA to get my rear suspension dialed in after putting the lift in my X5. Worked great, once I figured out the needlessly difficult BMW nature of the adjustment module. Something about changes To a reference height, if I recall correctly.

Foxwell will do suspension calibration but remember to be on a flat level surface. You can find it under the 2nd menu maintenance area. Just remember that line and transport mode will set the car down onto the bump stops....
