It was/ is a REGENCY conversion truck with complete rear air suspension. It has the ability to dump the air to lower the rear for whatever reason.

great price, no idea about install prices or actual ride. It does answer my question...How can I keep from beating myself to death?

Start with your seat. If its the stock OEM peice, consider an upgrade. GM has the 'regular' seat, and an upgrade. Upgrade has lumbar air bag, better adjustment.

I have put over 100,000 on my 2004 C4500 and find the ride to be acceptable. I try to keep it loaded at all times...for my back...and for my wallet.

Do you plan to add an auxilary fuel tank, or a refueling tank? 100 gallons (~800#) in the middle of the truck would help the ride...

Default Fuel tank vs ride

Mark
Yes, I have thought about extra fuel..if I could make a trade of the existing tanks 15 and 30gal towards a centerline 100gal I would certainly make the switch...must get priorities right . New year starting slow must watch the bottom line closer.
