    I have to think you are calling something else from what I am a leveling valve, I have never seen one on the front axle, and I have worked on literally hundreds, if not thousands of trucks.
    You are talking about the valve mounted on the frame crossover, with a metal rod going down and hooking on to the banjo housing aren't you?

    Ok, just a thought. lol Not dissing you at all.
    I have just never ever seen one on the front axle, except for one spread axle van, but that is a whole different animal.

    You haven't seen much then. Having the leveling valve mounted on the front is extremely common in nearly all truck manufacturers (old and new). There are literally hundreds if not thousands of trucks with the leveling valve mounted on the front drive axle.

    The truck I'm driving right now has it mounted on the front. I have experience with relatively few trucks and I've seen it both ways.

    I just have never seen one that I have noticed, and I owned a truck shop for several years, probably have changed a hundred of them. lol I know for sure none of the air ride trucks I have ever owned had it on the front axle, and have owned over 20, some of them for short periods, some for years.

    Jesus guys! Does this really have anything to do with our Flatbed Hall of Shame? Can't we just agree that it can be done both ways and get back to laughing at idiots?

    Just in case you think we're crazy.
