    I have a 2023 volvo vnl 760 with only 35 thousand miles on it. The truck feels like I'm driving on deflated bags.but they are aired up. I've been to two different volvo dealers.and have gotten different answers. M&k in Gary ID. Said to drive it til I need a tow truck.volvo in Mobile AL said it was a dry fifth wheel plate. Cause they couldn't find the problem. Tube of grease later and I still have the same issue. It's a rough ride. Feels like suspension isn't aired up. But gages are good bags are fully inflated. Leveling rod works properly. It's new so shocks and things shouldn't be worn out yet. Someone please steer me in the right direction to resolve this issue.

    Cab height set correctly? Best thing l did was new cab shocks by Gabriel 12" longer travel than stock.

    Not sure. Like I said it's a brand new truck.

    If the cab air ride height is off it will ruin your ride. I would have that checked to see if the leveling valve for the cab is bad or just out of adjustment. Maybe speak to a Volvo tech find out what the measurement is and you can probably check yourself.

    What’s the tire pressure at?
    Dump the air out of the bags and then let them refill again

    Check the cab air valve maybe you have no suspension air on the cab and that will cause the rough ride.
