Suspension Issue

I have a 2012 renegade explorer, the right rear tires are about 3 to 4 inches closer to the top of the wheel well than the left side. I crawled under the rig and did not notice any problems and the airbags seem ok.
Any ideas?

What is the distance from frame to axle on each side? Measuring to a body part is not accurate if the body is twisted.

Hello Ray
I will have to measure this tomorrow as the rig is at the storage yard.
Thanks

I was assuming you have air-bag assist on your truck. If not;
Airbag suspension uses a "ride-height" valve to keep the RV level. Before measuring, find the ride-height setting/measurement for your RV, so you know where to take the measurement on each side of the suspension.

CAUTION! Attempting to adjust ride-height must be performed exactly as described by the chassis mfgr.; personal injury or worse is possible.

Hi Ray.

Unless the coach has an air leveling feature, I think the hadley vales will try to maintain a constant distance from the axel to the frame. If the coach is on unlevel terrain the whole thing will follow the terrain. With an automatic leveling system, the air bags are used to try and keep the coach level.

That's right, unless one of the ride-height linkage assys. gets out of adjustment. I had a rubber end piece break and let the air out of that bag.
