I am wondering if there are any kits so you can manually adjust the factory airride that comes on 08-09 Tahoes?

I did a search to no avail.

What happens when you start modifying suspension systems on Tahoe's with these autoride system?

You can not adjust the rear suspension on the Tahoes like you can the TBSS. The tahoe has coils and the TBSS has bags.....


I am working on lowering my girls 07 LTZ Tahoe. I am probably going to do spindles and Fox coilovers in the front. For the rear I want to do something similar to the TBSS, bags that work off the factory autoride. I am thinking some firestone sleeve bags with fox shocks will do the trick. I am trying to get a 4/6 drop. Once I figure anything out I will definitely let you know. :shake:

you can lower it by bending the bracket that holds the autoride sensor. It senses when the truck is level, but it will ride like shit.

If you have the money to afford an LTZ Tahoe, just do it the right way and lower it with some coils in the back and spindles up front. Don't jig it.

Who said anything about lowering it :tongue:

It's just sometimes nice to be able to drop/raise the back a couple of inches.

yes ive done 4 of them so far. You bypass the factory compressor adjust the levelers at lowest position then you use this unit to run it all. Same thing ive been doing in the trailblazer ss's. Pm me ill give you all the info.
