Effects of elevation changes on freshly canned salsa

My question is different from cooking at a certain elevation. We are planning on canning some salsa at our cabin over the weekend, but will be bringing the finished product home. I want to know if the elevation change will affect the seal of the jars. I would hate to have salsa all over my vehicle by the time I got home!

We'll be going from about 8,000 ft down to about 4,000 ft.

Thanks in advance!

The opposite. It will slightly "deplode" as you release the seal. Elevation difference is so mild here I wouldn't worry about that.

You shouldn't have any problems. Be like buying a jar of jelly in Laramie and taking it home...A little extra pressure.
