The front height control system resulted unnecessary therefore all cars manufactured after chassis number 7404 (1969) stop installing them. Most of the components of this system have been removed in early cars by official dealers. The hydraulic pipes of the system were cut off.

A lever (operating rod) mounted on the front anti roll bar detects the height of the vehicle. If the vehicle starts to to be too heavy the lever activates the height control valve by opening it and allowing high pressure fluid flow into the front rams, pushing the car to higher levels. Once the car is to the right level the valve closes, stopping the flow of the fluid in all directions. To lower the car, the valve just opens on the opposite direction, sending fluid back to the reservoir.

The part in question is UR14737 which you can find by clicking here.
