Hello, what is the ambient air temperature when these pressures are monitored?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
It is 89 degrees
Thanks for that information. My first suggestion would be to pull about an ounce of refrigerant out and see where that takes the pressures. The spec by Suzuki for freon capacity is 1.4lbs +/- 20 grams.

Try that and let me know how it goes.

I tried that earlier, even pulled it all out and started over adding up to correct amount as indicated on spec sheet on vehicle. It has to be expansion valve since high side never get up to 150.
Although it is unusual to get a bad expansion valve out the box, I have seen it happen. I would suggest replacing it again.
