How can I lock the ride height in Standard at all times?

Does anyone know how to lock the MX in Standard height while driving? On highways it defaults to Low height and I have to reset it to Standard. It's wearing the rear tires on the inside even if they are aligned. Tesla service wasn't helpful. I just want to set the height in Standard and not have to deal with it every time I get on highways. Any other ideas on this?

Tesla recommends Low now, to prevent half shaft damage related to the 'shudder' problem, across the board. Supposedly they are doing alignment in Low as well, so other threads here suggest you should not see tire wear due to ride height in Low assuming re-alignment has been done. Probably why they are not really helpful on setting to Standard.

I had some trouble with ride height staying where I set it as well, so maybe others have advice to your question. Make sure 'Always Lower' is turned off and set above your highway speed. It is supposed to remember GPS locations for ride height as well, which seemed to be part of my problem, but I did not see how to forget height settings driving around my home area that I might have set while experimenting.

My service center still insists this can't be done. More to the point, though, the camber is not adjustable, so it really doesn't matter where the alignment is done, which implies someone is just paying lipservice if they suggest that. To the OP's concern, though, do newer models not have the "automatic lowering" setting which can be set to "Always," a range of MPH, or "Never"? Last I checked, mine was still on "Never" but it's possible I haven't looked for it since v11 or something.

You have to get camber and tow arms from www.N2itive.me
