There's a lever on one side of the rear suspension setup.

Need to run a retrofit harness.

For everything except for facelift coupes, would need an LCM that has auto-leveling circuitry and would need to enable it via coding.
Might also be possible to use the separate module from the facelift coupes.

Dunno. Haven't tried it so there might be something I haven't considered.
