i have a 2 pump setup with 4 8-inch cylinders.......its wired to 6 switches. when I try to do side to side in the back........if I try to let only the right rear cylinder down first it only goes down about 1/2 an inch.....but if I try to let the left rear down first it drops alot more....what could be my problem? If I dump both left and right rear with a single switch it drops fine......thanks in advanced!!!

nothing is wrong......the reason that happens is cuz when you dump the right it only goes down so far cuz the left is still holding it up....and when you dump the left it goes down a lil further......its all weight distribution....

if it goes down with more weight this will confirm the prob

it does sound like a weight problem.
well there are 4 people telling you that its more than likely weight.
finding out if it is weight or not is cheep and easy. but what do i know im only answering a ? you had that everyone has answered the same.

like i said.....the left side drops normally when you drop the left rear.......but when you try to drop the right rear BEFORE you drop the left rear it doesnt drop that much at all. IF you reverse it doing the left first then the right then everything is fine....i dont know what the deal is?????

I only have the rear setup on right now....and also i pretty much have everything spaced out right for equal weight distribution. I even tried putting extra weight in the right corner and nothing changed.

is it full of gas cos the tank is big n its placed on 1 side so that side will be heavier than the other ,i remember when i had my truck n it was full it would lift unevenly
