I've got good brake lights and good parking lights on both sides. The left brake light fails to come on only if the right turn signal circuit is activated.
There again the turn signal connector looking like the problem. Check it out.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.
