Exclamation Fleetwood American Eagle suspension issues

I have an Fleetwood American Eagle 2002 model, I have a suspension issue at the moment been looking everywhere but can’t find any advice of help wondering if anyone could help me out.

My drivers side is much lower than my passenger side which is causing big problems. My back has 2 linkages which is fine however the front only has 1 linkage so my drivers side is much lower than the passenger side so it’s always unbalanced. I have tried different mechanics and they have been no help either, my suspensions are made by Reyco granning suspension on a Spartan chassis I called Reyco but they couldn’t help either. If anyone knows any suggestions or advice on how I could fix this issue would be very beneficial.

Are you referring to the ride height . That's controlled by a ride ride height valve with an arm to the air bag.

Can't edit on phone anymore the arm is not attached to air bag . The arm is adjustable that controls air to bag and sets the height .

Fleetwood Am Eagle

I solved the same by adjusting the driver side rear leveling valve to bring the coach to level. Good Luck

The ride height control arms on the rear axle control the left-right balance. Adjusted properly, there should be no lean unless you have an air bag (front or rear) that is not inflating properly (leaking, bad air inlet valve, etc.)

The use of 3 ride height valves rather than 4 is pretty much standard air suspension design, so that's not the cause of your problem. You just need to get the suspension dialed in correctly, with no leaks and properly set ride height.

The rubber ends on the ride height valve rods get old and you may have one on the rear driver’s side that’s at a 90 degree, not straight. You can buy just the rubber ends. Yes the back 2 control the front side to side level.
This post is my opinion, worth what you paid for it.
