I would ask the previous owner or go to the air bag website. Does it ride OK now?
I am sure the manufacturer can give you some general PSI.
Had height adjustable shocks on a 69 Camero(about 100 years ago),
Just depended on how stiff or spongy you wanted the ride.

15-50 psi. (it is rated to 100 but NEVER inflate it that high) I found that 20 was good for everyday driving and the most I ever had them at was 45 psi with a super heavy load for a Baja camping trip. Mine was an '05... is the truck silver?

Oh, I see you say just one valve... Mine had seperate air valves on each side of the license plate.

I already gave him a range... as it sounds like he had the same set up as I did (RideRite).

Excellent... and when you load up the truck... just add air to level it... 35-45 psi may be fine!
