    I have a 2000 Western Star, we have put new cab air bags on, a new leveling valve, and a new sway bar/dog bone on cab. The air bags were rising fine till we blew one which led to all this new, they were raising up with 120 pounds of air presure started truck this morning and they worked, went down the road about 60 miles and they are not raising at all, any suggestions?

    It’s possible that the new leveling valve is bad, but there may be a pressure protection valve in line.
    I’d pull the supply line off the leveling valve and see if you have air. If not trace the line back toward the air tank looking for a protection valve.
    @QUALITYTRUCK may have a better idea.

    Is it possible you over tightened the sway bar ends and it's binding?
