Default How adjustable is the air suspension?

So I have a slight rub on the drivers side front tire, back part of the fender while in normal ride height when turning to the left? After looking at the rig the past few days I'm now seeing that she is slightly lower on that side......that said, I'm now thinking that's why the rubbing, as it is literally barely touching in one spot, while in the turn (just shy of full lock). So my question, preferably for you techs out there, is the air ride adjustable where just one corner can be brought up a tad to level things out. I've quickly measured the fender heights and they are close but off, and the difference in gaps between the tire and fender though is greater between each side. Either way, it looks noticeable (at least to me on flat ground looking head on) but I'll further examine things like the frame to ground measurements and so on. I know one other member having a similar experience and wondering if there are more out there. Hesitant to leave at dealer and have them fiddle with this if there's no real fix. Now it's not completely lopsided, just slightly off kilter and could be normal even on reg suspensions. I felt that my last Ram was off, so I adjusted the torsion bars to adjust it. Thanks and sorry for the long winded post. Happy Tuesday!

I believe there was another post on here that said the dealer recalibrated the air suspension and that resolved the rubbing issue. If I can find the post, I'll provide the link.


EDIT: Found the thread http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread....ibrated&page=2

Sweet, thanks Hardrocker. Hopefully that's all it is. I called the dealer and the woman I spoke with said she needed to talk with the guy who does the trucks and will call me back. I'm hoping that they have a clue ad can bang it out while I wait one day.
