Thanks for purchasing our first Rivian product! We hope you enjoy these “Triple-L” Ride Height Adjusters / Lowering Links / Lift Links / Leveling Links and encourage you to leave us some feedback on your experience with the parts! This is for you know-it-alls who never read the instructions:

NOTE A: A heat gun can be used to help remove the ball of the lowering link
NOTE B: Ensure the truck is in “Tire Change Mode” prior to installation
NOTE C: Ensure you don’t overheat any wires or plastic parts with the heat gun!

Installation Instructions:

Time Required: 1.25 Hours
Tools Required: T30 L-Wrench (like a hex key), 10mm wrench, trim tool or screwdrivers, Heat gun
Difficulty Level: 3/10

Step 1 – Raise Car & Preparation:

  • Put the vehicle to your desired ride height mode (LOW, STANDARD, HIGH etc) and measure the starting ride height by measuring from the hub-to-fender arch
  • Put the vehicle in HIGH mode
  • Put the vehicle into Tire Change Mode (Vehicle > Service > Tire Change Mode)

Step 2 – Rear Installation:

  • NOTE: Start with the rear as it is easier, and you’ll get a feel for the force required to remove the ball sockets from the ball stud.
  • Using a heat gun, gently heat the bottom of the OEM ride height sensor link. If you smell rubber you’ve put way too much heat into the surface! Heat it 3 or 4 times, each time until the surface is too hot to touch by hand, followed by a 15-second cooldown. This will ensure the entire link is warmed up, without overheating the surface (think BBQing, gotta get that core temp up!) Be careful not to overheat any plastic or electrical components. Be mindful of where you point that thing!
  • Using screwdrivers or trim tools, pry evenly around the socket to pop the link out of the OEM ball. Ensure that you do not twist or bend the link excessively or you risk breaking it. If the link is hard to remove you likely don’t have it hot enough.
  • Remove the OE ball stud from the rear control arm and install the MPP adjuster with the provided M6 10mm bolt. Tighten the M6 bolt at the desired height setting.
  • Put some of the provided super lube on the ball stud and inside the OEM link socket.
  • Heat the OEM link again and pop it on. You’re done!

Step 3 – Front Installation:

  • Locate the OEM ball stud on the front upper control arm.
  • Remove the OEM ball stud from the front upper control arm using the T30 L-wrench. If you don’t have one we wish you the best of luck and please let us know what you used instead!
  • Rotate the ride height sensor link downwards to get more access to it.
  • Prepare your pry tools and practice your moves a few times before heating the link. Optionally you can also jack the car up and remove the wheels for more access, although it doesn’t make it much easier.
  • Using a heat gun, gently heat the OEM ride height sensor link socket area. If you smell rubber you’ve put way too much heat into the surface! Heat it 3 or 4 times, each time until the surface is too hot to touch by hand, followed by a 15-second cooldown. This will ensure the entire link is warmed up, without overheating the surface (think BBQing, gotta get that core temp up!) Be careful not to overheat any plastic or electrical components. Be mindful of where you point that thing!
  • Using screwdrivers or trim tools, pry evenly around the socket to pop the link out of the OEM ball. Ensure that you do not twist or bend the link excessively or you risk breaking it. If the link is hard to remove you likely don’t have it hot enough.
  • Put some of the provided super lube on the ball stud and inside the OEM link socket.
  • Heat the OEM link again and pop the MPP adjuster onto the link.
  • Install the MPP adjuster with the new M6 10mm bolt, hand tighten, and use the provided laser cut keys to your desired setting.

Adjustment Guide:

  • ALWAYS have the vehicle in “Tire Change Mode” prior to adjusting the Triple-L Links. “HIGH” or “VERY HIGH” are the best height modes to access and see the adjusters.
  • You may have difficulty with the rear hydraulic lines that attach to the lower control arm in “VERY HIGH” mode. You can lower the car a bit to reduce tension on them.
  • 1 mark (1mm) is approximately 6mm of ride height change.
  • Moving the ball stud UP will raise the ride height.
  • Moving the ball stud DOWN will lower the ride height.

Front Tips:

  • Set the M6 bolt about hand-tight before using the provided laser-cut keys to adjust the ride height.
  • The notches on the keys indicate how many millimeters the adjuster will move – for example, the key with 1 notch will move the adjuster 1mm from the end: 1mm down from the top, or 1mm up from the bottom. Using the longest key will set the adjuster to the zero setting.

Rear Tips:

  • The rear is easier than the front, you can easily make changes in only a few seconds. You’ll be able to visually see the marks on the adjuster to know what setting you’re at.
  • Set the M6 bolt hand-tight so that it’s easy to slide the adjuster without having it move on its own.

Suggested Settings:

Low Ride Height Leveling:

This is our personal favorite: It results in a much better look as well as vastly improved ride quality as the front suspension no longer bottoms out.

Front +3
Rear -1

Ride Height Increase:

Use at your discretion, this is above Rivian’s settings. Increased axle/CV joint wear could be possible if used in the “HIGH” or “VERY HIGH” mode. Don’t blame us!

Front +4
Rear +3

Ridiculously Low:

Use at your discretion, this is below Rivian’s settings. Increased bump stop, damper and axle/CV joint wear could be possible if used in the “VERY LOW” mode. Don’t blame us!

Front -4
Rear -4

Tow Mode:

This mode is great for use when towing trailers with some tongue weight. It will result in a more level truck when loaded. Note that a quick alternative option is to only adjust the rears. This can be done much faster than doing front and rear!

Front -4
Rear +4

That’s it! Enjoy your new adjusters and please share your feedback with us, and send along some photos so that we can share the exciting adventures you take these adjusters on!
