Hello, I have 1 1977 Dodge Motor Home, it is a Diplomat II, and is in pretty good shape, however it seems like the left side sits about 2 inches lower than the right side when looking at it from behind.? I crawled underneath and looked at the leaf springs and I do not see any broken leaves.? Does anyone know why it is sitting this way?? Last year, it sat fine, but this spring, it seems a bit off-kelter.? Thanks for any help.. ???

hi, think the air bags are firestone, i don't know who makes the kit. they were on it when i bought. when i air them up to 70psi it levels out and raises it up 2" i hope this helps you... PS. check your nearby 4wheelparts store.....
