Measured my 2014 and the front is exactly 2" lower than the rear at all settings. Just raising the fornt 1.5" would help the looks of the truck a bunch. It's not about MPG, it's about looking like a truck

If someone finds someone that can level these please post it, I will do the same.

That's funny. I swear last time I measured mine, it was within a 1/2". I'll have to go recheck it and verify.

I'm not sure how you're measuring the height difference but I'm assuming that you're measuring from the top of the front and rear fenders. I just measured mine with air suspension set to entry mode and found the front is 2.25 " lower than the rear. I'll have to wait until some other time to measure it in normal mode but I've never really noticed by looking at it from a distance it looking like it has too much of a rake. It has always looked fine to me. It might sit more level in normal height mode since in entry mode it is sitting on the rubber bump stops.

I measured it in normal mode. In exit mode it most definitely has a rake to it.

I believe that there is difference between front/rear. I will attempt to look for the literature I was reading a few weeks ago from RAM. I ordered the brochure and in it they describe the system, and included a bunch of measurement for both the front and the rear. They def move independent of one another, i.e.- it's marketed as say a 2" drop for entry/exit, well in fact the rear drops X.X and the front only X.X. I don't recall all the numbers now, but I was surprised how specifically different they were. I look and try snapping a pic, unless someone else finds theirs first.

Air suspension bleeds down when truck is turned off and ultimately rests on the rubber stops. Truck will be level at that time.

The only time the suspension should rest on the rubber stop is when the air suspension is placed in entry position. It will auto level itself a few minutes after shutting it off but that's it. Mine has sat in the garage for 2 weeks without the suspension bleeding down. I did have an occurrence a week after I got it where it lowered from off-road 2 to entry height while I was underneath taking pictures. I never did figure out why that happened and it hasn't moved on it's own since.

Just checking on any updates of any tool to make the air suspension actually manually controlled. (Not returned to the nomal setting by speed) and to manually raise the front or rear independent of each other.
