Default Air Suspension Alignment Mode

Just had my tires replaced at the local Town Fair Tire and discovered afterwards that there is a selection in the EVIC for wheel alignment. Owner Manual indicates that vehicle must be in alignment mode for wheel alignment.

I never thought to check this, and the tire place did an alignment as part of my install. They likely didn't know either (although the receipt for the alignment shows little adjustment and specifically calls out my model with Air Suspension).

Wonder if this could cause a problem if the mode was not selected?

Had to edit my comment since I just realized you have a '13 air suspension. My bad.

i was wondering about that myself I almost forgot a couple of times to set my suspension to Jack Mode when I was at Discount Tire. Maybe its called something else because jack mode sounds like a totally different subject. Anyway it would be hard to jack up the truck while the suspension would be trying to level the whole time. I wonder if they align it in entry/exit mode. Aero, or standard? I doubt they would do it in off road 1 or 2. Im guessing alignment is done in standard height.
