    HI:

    THIS IS MY 1ST POST. I'M NEW TO THE CLUB AS OF TODAY!

    I HAVE A 2007 SIERRA 1500 WITH 8' BED --- I WOULD LIKE TO INCREASE THE WEIGHT CAPACITY OF THE REAR SUSPENSION. I'M SURE THERE IS MORE THAN ONE WAY, WHAT IS YOUR OPINION ON HOW I MIGHT DO THAT.

    First off......to the Site.....2nd You don't need to caps all of your words in your Post........

    To Help the Rear Suspension went heavy loads are in the bed of your truck and/or Towing......the Addition of Rear Air Bags would be and is the most common way to go..........Air Lift and Firestone Air Bags.....are the 2 Most often mentioned.
