I just watched the rear of my Rebel lower itself after being parked for about 5 minutes. Any idea why it did this? I keep it in Normal mode and have Eco disabled.

I read through the manual and saw this..... Maybe this is what it's doing:

"After the engine is turned off, it may be noticed that the

air suspension system operates briefly, this is normal. The

system is correcting the position of the vehicle to ensure

a proper appearance."

Yeah, read that in the manual when I first got the truck and laughed aloud at it. That's clearly meant to appeal to someone with vanity issues. :)

I like having the load leveling this way. If I'm moving stuff on and off the truck while it's shut down, the load still gets kept level as it should be. If it was an option for the Rebel I wouldn't have ordered it, but it is handy sometimes.

Yeah. I saw it lower and thought "WTF, I never want my truck to lower unless I tell it to", so it made me a little concerned.

I didn't get a bad feeling about it. It's pretty clearly designed to handle a little movement while staying in its assigned height range. Leveling just puts it where you expect it to be. Put some weight in the back and it pushes the rear down a bit, then the truck autolevels back to where it was before you add the load. But it's not designed for really extreme leveling.

Sure, you want to disable that if you're under the truck. It's no different from other vehicles with air suspensions. Disable it with jack mode, or if you're not entirely trusting of computer menus (like me), disconnect the battery.
