Ok folks, got a dumb question,.......

My car= 1992 525i.

Cannot find anywhere something which tells me posilutely, absilivley (ya a play on words there)...

if I have "Self-Leveling-Suspension" on it.

Bentleys' doesn't really cover it, was at the dealer a earlier today and the parts guy couldn't even tell me.

what is the telltale sign that I do or don't?

Any help is greatly appreciated........

Look under the car at your rear springs. If you see wires its self leveling. If you just see springs, its not.

Well, thanks for the input,, looks like I do NOT have the LAD.

The reason I asked in the first place was to get a replacement Pressure hose for the power steering pump, mine is leaking out of the metal fitting where the crimp on the hose goes to the meal tube section. (crap).


thanks for the help!!!!

And even if you had it, you may want to have dumped it after you found out how costly it is to repair. LOL... $650 each for the rear shocks alone.
