2005 Escalade ESV Platinum

I recently purchased the Escalade and am planning on some maintenance before taking a road trip next week.

With the wheel level sensors at each corner do I need to take any precautions when using a 2 post lift I have at my shop? I ask as with a 2 post lift you lift the chassis and the wheels hang and I don't want to mess anything up with the autoride suspension.

Any input would be appreciated.

I did try to search but the word "lift" seemed to give me the wrong results

No special precautions necessary.

No worries. Some vehicles have a switch to disable the air system for lifting but ours dont. Not sure about new models. Lift away!

So the adjustable rods at each wheel, that tell the sensor the wheel height, don't need to be disconnected or anything prior to lifting?

None do as far as I know unless you remove the compressor relay

I've jacked mine up numerous times without any special precautions, and it doesn't specify anything int he factory service manual either.
