Rear air suspension? Do you have aftermarket air bags?

A 2004 ram 1500 has regular leaf springs and shocks. If you have air bags they are aftermarket.

Probably for towing/hauling. See if you can find out what brand and model they are. Maybe put a few psi in them to take away some weight transfer/squat.

if you have bags...go with the least amount of air as possible..you want the truck to squat as much as possible from the gitgo... I try to let all the air out of mine (the solenoids keep them at least 4-5 lbs)
