Air Lift 1000 air springs.... installed on my last two trucks. Definately get individual fill fittings for each bag. I have my air fill fittings routed to become my upper rear license plate bolts, and it looks trick. It basically makes the rear of your truck into an adjustable anti-sway bar, towing or not, I love mine. $300+/- installed.

Firestone Ride-Right Air Bags are also used by a few members. Do a search on Air Bags, there is lots of info.

The Duramax is awsome and the Allison transmision is the ONLY way to go. I loved my ford but I love the chevy even more.
GM has an option on the 3500 to get SRW.

When I upgrade to a dually, I will have them installed again.
Some of the h2's have the rear air bags fromt the factory.

i guess not or youd see more prob just get a dually for under 10k when i start looking
The Avalanche 2500 is/was not off the same chassis as the Tahoe and Hummer. The Tahoe and Hummer H2 are off a 1500 chassis.

2500 Avalanche/Suburban is on the old GMT 800 platform and had a beefier frame.
