Air Ride Height

My neighbor has a 01 National Islander, and he would like to adjust the ride height of the front. It has a Dynamax [COLOR=#0072BC ! important][COLOR=#0072BC ! important]chassis[/COLOR][/COLOR], and he had the ride valve replaced on the road somewhere else and now the front is too high and the headlights are in the trees. Does anyone know how to adjust the height? We have looked under at the valve, and the actuating arm seems to ride in a slotted fork. Any help would be appreciated.

It can be 2 ways , 1 follow the air lines , they might run to a regulator , which would need adjusting , the second type could be like on a semi's rear susp. follow the air lines if they go to a leveller , rod connected to an air valve on the frame to the axle , then it would have an ajustment to slide up or down, which would then add or dump air off, . One thing to consider is the frame to axle distance.This distance is important as is can put more or less weight on the rear axle, thus not the proper weight distribution. It would stay constant no matter if your load is light or heavy. Inquire at a place where semi's are repaired, if your frame is oshkosh or ford etc.
