    I just picked up a 15' Tahoe LT with the HD tow package and Z85 rear leveling air suspension. The shocks are shot all around, so I need to replace them. I had the Fox coilovers and rears on my 15' Silverado and they were great. Can i use the same setup on this truck without issue? What do people usually do for rear shock replacement with the air shocks that don't want to pay top $$$ for OEM stuff?

    Thanks in advance.

    Arnott doesn't make any products for 15'+ model year GM trucks. Anyone? Someone has to have replaced the stock rear air leveling shocks with something aftermarket.....

    can't speak of rear air shock replacement but I did front and back Bilstein 5100 and I am very happy.
    Initially just to lift the nose up but really improved the quality of the ride over the stock which felt shot at 60k miles.
    I would contact them directly and ask about your particular application.

    Yeah I contacted them directly and they verified they don not supply suspension for 15'+ model years. I think I'll just get the OEMs out back and the Fox 2.0s up front.

    I would check Ebay also, better pricing, free shipping and no tax.

    How many miles were on your originals? Did the new OEM's help? I have '15 Yukon with the same suspension....rides like a wagon. Very harsh.
