06 2500hd 4x4 w/wheelchair lift and Iím having suppression issues

I have a 06 2500hd 4x4 w/wheelchair lift and Iím having suppression issues, with me and my wheelchair it leans about 2Ē on driver side. It already has 3Ē body lift to accommodate the wheelchair lift. The GMC dealer cranked the keys up 2Ē on the driver side and now it rides really rough. Anyone know how I can fixs this issue, I would not mind coming up to almost level, but donít know, to do this and get a good ride, since Iím always pushing down 2Ē already?
Here is the wheelchair truck conversion link: GoSHICHI 4x4
Thanks, Don

I would contact the wheelchair lift company and ask them why it leans. they should have compensated for this somehow in there design. Otherwise maybe an airbag set up on your suspension front and rear with seperate air valves so you can adjust them. You wouldnt need much air at all for this and it may not ride all that bad. minimum air on the right side and 4 or 5 pounds more on the left. good luck. first time I have seen this set up and with my step brother in a chair I can see where this would be very cool for ya.

not to downplay the fact that you're in a wheelchair, but that is a very neat set up and cool idea

Mabye contact Nor-Cal Nick on here. He is the suspension guy around here. If anyone would have a suggestion he will. BTW that is a great looking conversion, I have a friend in a wheelchair and he wasnt able to find anything like that, he got a dodge magnum.

Thanks guys....I have talked to Nick, I was seeing if someone had other ideas, i did install air ride bags in the rear. I guess I really dont understand the concept of how the congito supension would help leveling it out. They dont have front airbags that, I know of! Has anyone installed the installed a congito from Nor-Cal? Thanks

Oh which 4" exhaust ya like?

To make the exhaust a true 4" do you need to replace down pipe?
