Well adding airbags won't make it lean if you have equal air in both sides so it must have leaned before...

That's true. I will have to look at the bags again and see if the mounting is level. They have the same pressure in them now and I lean about 1/2 inch. I just went through weighing my setup and measuring for the adjustment for the WDH to the new truck. I know it was level before, but I don't know how much fuel I had at that time. The measurements were the same at that time. It's only 1/2 inch. Can't really tell unless I measure it.

Is your tank a midship mounted tank? (between the axles). If so, the full tank could make it lean but I've never experienced it.

Its on the drivers side. The huge exhaust takes up the whole passenger side of the truck. Truck is leaning to the drivers side 1/2 inche.

Yeah, that's fuel weight. They're big tanks.

I would guess fuel as well. I wouldn't think you'd need 20psi higher on driver side to correct a small lean though. That's seems like a lot....

Update on my Air Lift 5000's…

So Far so Good, Bags are holding Air with no problem (hopefully didn't just jinx myself). I ran each line independent and mounted the valves in the bracket that holds the 7 Pin/4 Pin Plugs, valves come through the top of the bracket sticking out the bottom.

I did decide not to get an air tank and got a small 12V air compressor from Harbor Freight, I got a 12V power port that plugs into the 12V power on the 4 Pin connector so I can plug the power port into the 4 pin plug, plug my compressor into that and add air to the bags in no time, I over inflate a little then let air out of the to bring them down to where I want them, so far works good.

Have not found the need for an onboard compressor, have about $25 in the compressor and 12V power port.

Was reading about the issues with the install of the Firestones, I did my Air Lift 5000 install with hand wrenches and manual sockets, wasn't too bad, may have gone faster with pneumatic tools but many places I could have only gotten wrenches in anyway. I do need to get under and check they are still tight.

So far I am happy that I installed Air Bags as I like the flexibility of them.
