Question about 2005 GMC Sierra
I need additional rear end weightsupport for my 2005 GMC Sierra.
I am doing quite a bit of towing and the rear end suspension of my 2005 GMC sierra seems really soft and weak. (I know, i should have gone with the HD or the 2500!) I bought the truck with a 6" lift already on it and the rear of the truck is lower than the front of the truck even when the truck is empty.
What is the most effective and economical way to solve this problem?? I have been given advice ranging from new leaf springs, to adding leaf springs, to air bags, to air shocks, to simple additional support leafs from the towing section of an auto parts store. Question 2 is where do I get it?
Thanks for the advice!!!!
All these choices are great, prices are all about the same $250-$350 parts, go to any R V store or dealer and most can install, any off road shop will be able to do this aswell if you dont feel comfortable doing

You really, really want a suspension specialist. Look in the yellow pages. You want a place that not only sells stuff but installs it. The kind of place that puts new springs in trucks, esp bigger trucks. They'll be in a larger city. In addition, you might want to get rid of the lift kit. It is affecting your handling but that's not your real problem, just a thought. Perhaps even, the guy who installed the lift kit moused the rear suspension, otherwise it would not be lower now. I suspect you have even less suspension than the truck came with.
