87 Southwind

Have a 87 Southwind with airbags, after the bags have aired up it leans to the right, I can manually level it but it doesnt ride level, easy fix ? Also when we are driving down the freeway and hit a good bump there is a really bad knocking sound coming behind the steering column, looking for help thanks !!

Don't know about leveling your unit but that knocking definitely needs to be looked at.
Could be the bump stops bottoming out, or broken parts like coil spring, control arm, etc.
If you can't determine what it is a front end shop should be able to.
