1999 American Eagle air valves

I have a 1999 American Eagle on a Spartan chassis. An air leak caused the coach to "dump air" in a about 4 hours when the coach was parked and turned off - in my driveway. The mechanic replaced two front air valves. Now when I turn a corner or their is a weight shift side to side on the chassis - I hear air releasing like a relief valve. It is only momentarily. Also now when I dump the air using the dump valve, the air releases extremely fast and coach comes down on chassis faster and harder than ever. Is it possible the wrong valves were installed? Just want info before I speak with the shop.

Does the dump valve assembly have a built-in flow regulator, or is it a separate device or adjustment?

Twelvolt - good question. I was informed they replaced 2 individual valves. I will check on regulator or flow thru question.

I'm with Dave on this , your complaint sounds familiar, from another post, and if memory serves the problem was an non transferred piece from the original valve.
Kind of a muffler / diffuser .

Transferring a piece from old to new is it! One mechanic had no idea (the one who worked on the coach) - another mechanic advised him and will make the switch. Thank you all for the help.
