I looked at your 96A3 and was immediately struck by how high the front end looks in this picture. I refreshed my 96A3's front suspension this past winter. During the refresh I replaced the leveling valve and then reset the ride height of the axle. From the picture it looks to me like your bus is riding at least 1" higher then mine is. If you had time during your next maintenance I would be curious to know what the ride height on yours is set to right now.
I'll be happy to check it for you when we get it back in service! Not long a go(about a month or so) I had another weekend from you know where and had several things go wrong!
Well one of them was "Gus" lost a turbo, and took o ut an engine! So it sits waiting for it's time to be fixed. (as soon as dad makes up his mind on what exactly it is we want to do with it!)
Best of my memory though I beleive when that old pic was taken, it had sat for a day or 2 and the rear suspension had prbably bled down. But the front had not!
Also we have rebuilt the rear suspension since then too. So it may be rididng "more level" now!
