Oh hell ya! Looks like problem SOLVED! I will order a set immediately.

Thanks for the info Floyd!

Edit: Oh wait these are for lowering. I don't want to lower my truck, I just want to lift one side. Oh oh. Need to call them.

Guys,

Ok I talked to John at adjustableairride.com (nice guy) and the RAM linkage can be for either lowering or raising. You have to specify which you want when you order. Now be aware that these are gonna set you back a pretty penny at $300.

If you are lazy like me maybe pay for them and don't tell the wife, or if you are on a budget build your own solution for cheaper.

Jason

Hello everyone,

I'm happy to announce my lean issue is fully resolved. If anyone else has a lean with the air suspension, there is an easy fix. However, as mentioned above it is not cheap. But it works great.

Here are some pics to show my results. It's a little hard to tell by looking just at the truck itself. There was some camera tilt plus my driveway has a slight slope to it so it is hard to eyeball, but the bubble level tells the tale. Now with the new linkage installed I have been able to correct it. Check out these pics of before and after.

My solution was to by the adjustable linkage mentioned in the posts above from www.adjustableairride.com. The owner John was extremely helpful when I contacted him. There is a kit especially for the RAM 1500. When ordering you must indicate whether you want to lift or lower your truck.

Overall I am glad I was able to correct RAM's mistake, but this solution is a bit pricey. However, it was extremely easy to apply.

If you have any questions let me know.

Jason

great post guys, very helpful.
so if I wanted to lower the rear end of my truck, would I make the links longer or shorter?

BurninVernon, truck looks great.

Can you give us any pics of what you actually recieved in the kit? 4 new rods? . . . other "stuff" with it? . . . Quality?

Thanks for the help -

Hey guys, I just made my own links. Is anyone interested in therm?
PM me with your email or cell number and I will send you pics of my truck.

Options:

with just the front links the truck comes out fully leveled.
I can show you how to adjust the rear so you can have a slight rake if you would want.
Or I can make the rear links.

-mike

my Setup. Stock 20x10.5 Sports wheels, 33x12.5x20 Atturo tires, 1.5 hub centric spacers all around, my level kit.
