Hi PJ,

When I had air suspension on my Disco I had this problem a couple of times. I just connected Nanocom and raised it up to the height I wanted and stored this ride height. Kinda calibrated the height.

I my eyes not two sensors are the same or will give the same signal even at same height, so I will always recommend calibration with Nanocom or similar. You might get away with just replacing a sensor or sway them around so a different part of the pot is used, but I would still recommend calibration unless you are happy with the outcome.

Hope it makes sense.

Good luck
Best regards

I've done it on a Disco 2 after fitting a replacement ride height sensor.
It was listing to one side and using Nanocom we managed to get it to sit straight.
