Air Suspension

Just had my first prolonged drive with newly installed air, started off with 3.5 bar then settled on 2.5 bar. So here's my question has anyone started off with a continuous line and then split so as to have individual ( left and right) it's just that when I park on sideways on a slight slope the airbags seem to have different amounts of air ! and the effect seems to increase the lean ? and i'm wondering if the same effect happens on the drive ?

I've only ever installed on vehicles with bags piped in tandem,

the benefit gained inflating them individually are; they can hold less or more air
(so a fridge full of beer on N/S needs more to level camper) and secondly on cornering,
the compressed bag isn't forcing air across to the opposite side.

While I think I can see the plus side in this, I don't hit a roundabout at speed as I'm on holiday and it would require doubling up on pipework, electronics & valves in my case so hasn't been worth it.

2.5 bar BTW is about spot on but you could go more if you feel the ride is better
