I was wondering if any of you guys had this, how long did it take you to install it? I figure it probably comes with the step by step, but what takes some people 10 minutes might take me an hour! And does anyone know if this thing works while your driving? Thanks for any info?

I have it and it works great. It took me approximately 20 minutes to install since I checked all the wiring about 10 times. Yes, it has a step to step instructions...very straight forward. You can use it while you're driving but you won't be able to tell the HIDs are moving since your frame of reference is also moving.

I told this to everyone if you decide to get it, make sure you install it while the sun is still out. Have a flashlight in handy because it's hard to distinguish a black wire with orange stripe from a black wire with brown stripe.

i wonder since often when we drop our car the leveler has problems...will installin this before the drop help out in case the shop messes it up...will it work regardless of the positioning of the bracket ....does that make any sense?

ummm im not sure.....

i think the light still might come on when the HLC is off.
Because the hlc does nothing to the stock controller!
It just taps into, but it might! :)

The problem when you drop the car are simply due to the mechanical sensor linkage near the wheel being twisted 180deg out of phase and the computer throws a code because it sees the sensor stuck at this position and unable to ever move again until dealer readjustment.

I dont know if the HLC will work during this stuck sensor condition since I haven't dropped my car yet?
