When you open it you'll hear a rushing sound as the system depressurises and LHM rushes back to the reservoir.


doesn't that mean the suspension will drop to low position?


No, because you are already on low if you followed the instructions ;)

And if the car has anti- sink, the anti sink valves would close when the pressure release valve is opened , keeping the suspension pressurised, which is why you need to lower it first.
