ride height adjustment rod

I just changed my load leveler valve, dealer told me the ride height should be adjusted to 2.75 inches measured from driver side front axel.It seems on my truck there is no way to adjust the height cause the rod going from the lever valve arm to the axel pumpkin is not adjustable. Am I missing something here, its on a 03 columbia

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Is the solid rod able to slide thru the area it mounts on the actual valve? If so, that is the adjustment mechanism.

The ends on that rod have a rubber eyelet with a clamp on each end and adjust there or the adjustment is going to in valve itself which I've haven't seen on a Freightliner

On most valves where the arm connects to the valve there is a pinch bolt that holds the arm, the arm has a slot where you can adjust the arm height and re-tighten the pinch bolt....post a pic of the valve if you can...

also on some valves the mounting bolts allow for the valve to be tilted for adjustment.....

I'll have to take a pic, the rod itself has no adjustment on it, I thought the lever could be adjusted where it attaches to the valve but that isnt the case either. I loosened the nut holding it to the valve but it is fitted to lever so that it cannot be moved. When I went to tighten the nut back on, I broke the stud holding the lever on, I had a new valve so I just replaced it. I'm going to talk with my local dealer about the adjustment, he's the one that told me about the 2.75 inch ride height, I dont have a good level spot to check the measurement at home, I'll check it tonite at a local garage. thanks for the replies

I found out from my local dealer it is adjusted by loosening the 2 nuts that mount it to the plate and rotating the valve, you were right blackwood, thanks
