    i have a 2001 2wd Tahoe with the 4.3L engine. just bought a 1967 Airstream trailer, 4000 lb dry 24' tandem axle with electric brakes. two questions: (1) how do i find out what my rear axle ratio is? (2) what are some recomendations for pulling this trailer - shocks, weight-distributing hitch , trani cooler, etc........Thanks

    I would definately say that if you can do nothing else but a Weight Distributing Hitch, do it. I couldn't imagine pulling my 28' Layton without it. It makes a huge difference! But if you can do the shocks and tranny cooler too then go ahead every little thing helps.

    for the axle ratio, look in your glove box and get all the codes in there, and then do a search in the internet for a listing of what all the codes mean.
