    The car MUST have level ride shocks to drive correctly. Most people replace the GM air shocks with aftermarket ones and run the air hoses to a filler TEE at the rear bumper. The suspension must have a minimum of 20 LB of air in the shocks for proper ride height and normal ride.

    so the easy way is to forget the self leveling system and buy some "high jackers"?

    For which brand and type of shocks should i go...or isn't there a lot of difference in performance and ride comfort between the different sorts of shocks?
