Airmatic level one side lower

Hi everybody, after replacing the shocks before, I have a difference in level between the left side and the right side after an automatic calibration with sd conect 5 succeeded.

SD connect 5 autocalibrates? Using an older system, I had to set it manually using an inclinometer on the front control arms and the rear axles. Absolutely level floor, front control arms equal to each other and between 3.1* to 4.1* (inboard higher than outboard) plus rear axles between -0.9* and -1.5* (outboard higher than inboard). Set inclination angles, ensure sensor voltage values within allowable range, confirm inclination angles, go to next screen, enter recorded inclination angles, press "calibrate".

Potential causes:
-car not absolutely level prior to calibration,
-front control arms not equal inclination angle,
-rear bolts were tightened in such a way that one side is binding,
-front control arm bolts tightened so that one side is binding.

Those are the ones off the top of my head.

Hi bbirdwell,

Thank you very much for your precious response, I didn't think about that. I'm going to look in this direction

Thanks a lot
