What does my mechanic need to do?

Expert:  Pete replied 2 years ago.
I apologize for the delay.
You will have to have the mechanic install resistors to trick the suspension computer to think the correct shocks are installed.In some cases you can get these from a local parts store or order them on line.
Thanks Pete
