Tire clearance

I have a 2012 Renegade Explorer. The right rear tire clearance from the wheel well is 3 to 4 inches less than the left side. I crawled under the rig and didn't see any obvious problems, the air bag also seemed ok.
Any ideas?

First you should accurately measure left and right sides at a couple of places to accurately measure the difference in heights. Next you might get it weighed on all 4 corners to see if one side weighs more than the other. If a weight difference doesn't explain it, you'll need to have the springs examined. The low side might have a broken or bent spring.

After some investigation and phone calls I have found that the right air bag valve needs to be adjusted. I have been working on that will little success so far.
