2008 Fleetwood Excursion 40 ft DP

We bought it used and everything is thus far working perfectly. Here it comes. Except! The front right wheel well sits about 2 to 3 inches lower than left. Air up or down. Alignment has been set. No adverse effects to driving or steering. By the way Freightliner chassis. Several shops say they don't have a clue. Tires are correct also. Any ideas?

Are you measuring to the fender well? If so it may be that the fender well is shorter on one side.

First of all DW is skinny. Poorly stated by me I guess. The right front right bumper corner is lower also. I am beginning to think weak spring. Good idea I will call FW. Thx for help

You may be able to adjust the leveling arm on that bag to compensate for the difference.

Have a Freightliner shop (preferably the factory in Gafney, SC) check the ride height. They measure between the frame and the axle - measuring body to ground is not accurate.

By the way, there is no "spring" - it's an air suspension.

See my post... Same issue with a 2005 Fleetwood Bounder DP... Driver side is 2" lower than passenger side when measuring from pavement to bottom of front facia of the coach. This is also a freight liner chassis. No one has a clue as to why yet?
