2 lane roads at 60 to 70 mph ?? The speed rating for ST tires are 65 mph. Many 2 lane roads (at least around here) are 55 mph and under. Relax, slow down, and enjoy the scenery. Be safe.
Now onto the other problem. You need to do the fender measurements spelled out in the instruction manual to make sure you are getting enough weight put back on the front axle.......or you could actually have too much weight put back on the front axle. After tweaking the hitch with the fender measurements, then a trip across some CAT scales would be good to confirm your setup. A trip across with the spring bars in place, then without the spring bars, and then just 1 with the Avalanche alone will give you all sorts of good information. Keep load and passengers the same during each weigh-in.
