    I have a base model silverado 4x4 v6 automatic. When I hook a 16ft horse trailer it squats like a dog dropping nuggits.
    I'm gonna flip the ball on the hitch so it sits up instead of down, hopefully lifting the tongue up.
    But I want to stop the squat. Will 2500hd spring bolt on? If it lifts the back end up a bit that's fine. But I need it to stop squatting.
    Thanks I'm advance!

    Don't believe so. Air bags will though.

    I know airbags would. I actually have a pair. But I don't wanna run airbags really.

    Any GMT400 leaf pack will bolt right up, but if it's squatting that badly that's some serious tongue weight. Look at how high the front is, you need a WD setup as well.

    I have no idea how much lift they might give, but as everyone else has said, the packs are the same width/length.

    Which of the 2 is stiffer? How would I tell the 8600 gvw?
