I have a 22 Denali with the non air suspension. Can I get stiffer shocks in the back or something? The rear end squats pretty low when I have a big trailer on there

Unless there are stiffer springs or air bags, nothing else will help but maybe one of those things you insert into the spring.

Any luck with trying a weight distribution hitch?

I didn’t know the ‘22 had an option other than the air ride system. I thought they came standard? Does yours only have the Magnetic Ride Control and not the Air Ride Adaptive System?

When towing over 5,000 pounds on my generation truck, a weight distribution hitch is required. Yours may as well have the same or similar limit. In addition, you'll want to pay attention to your tongue weight and the weigh put on and over the rear axle, there's a limit to that too. Too much weight forward in the trailer and the tow vehicle will certainly sag if a WDH is not used.
