Default FC height control

Aired up the bus and left rear didn't raise up. The r/f went higher than normal. Air pressure is good and no loud air leaks from the left rear.
I am thinking a problem with the height control at left rear.
First time for me working with air ride system so looking for any helpful tips before I start.
Won't be looking at this before Sun. ( only day off this week )
Already have cribbing and chock blocks ready so am aware of safety and am not planning to crawl under an unsafe bus.
Any tips of where to start looking first and part numbers for the height control valves and linkage for a 1987 FC.
Saw part numbers for PT and SP but don't know if the FC takes the same.
Thanks in advance, Fred

Fred, you likely have adjustable ride height rods. The one on the low side rear has come loose and needs attention. Easy to deal with if you can get at it.

FC leveling valves are the same,
Recheck that cribbing it is really tight in the rear especially a low ceiling under your 87FC, with the generator&radiator, axle.
Agree with Crit
