    Default Denali Air ride replacement

    I have been looking at doing a passive shock/strut replacement on my wife's Denali. I have looked at a few replacement setups and a lot of the reviews say they are too bouncy for daily driving and I pull a camper a lot with the truck.

    Are there any good options, have any of you guys done a passive swap or should I just suck it up and buy OEM replacement and a new compressor?

    Couldn’t you just get the parts for a Yukon or suburban Non air ride and add some helper bags for towing needs?

    I thought of that, but I would be running the same price as the air ride replacement parts at that point. Since the air ride will self level I wouldn't have to mess with the air bags at all. Both ways it will be about $400 if I do helper bags. Just seeing what is the best way to go since electronics are good at failing in salt winter conditions

    I went with the arnott remanufactured oe shocks and a new pump. Arnott backs them with a warranty just as good as Delco but for way less. About $500 total but it all works just like it did from the factory. It was time, bladders were more blown out than Jenna Jamison.

    Been through this with wife’s LTZ Suburban. Do NOT just replace pump; likely the whole shebang is leaky. I fragged 2 pumps to learn this.
