I think we've found the problem!

We've not added passengers or gear in the denali yet.
X2, and even in the XL Yukon it would be cutting it close........

What kind of wdh do you have?
My dealer doesn't know how to setup a wdh correctly.

That was my initial concern so I spoke with the service dept at the dealership. They said that 90% of all w/d hitchs they put on are rated for 800lb tongue weight, and only use the 1000 lb a handfull of times.
Thats why I moved on to other issues besides the overloading the w/d hitch.

Unfortunately WD hitches will only aid in an overloading problem, they wont completely fix it.

If the wdh was setup correctly, he wouldn't have 4" of sag. If he has a 815lbs of dry tongue weight and 1000lb bars, the bars are too light. A properly set up wdh would level car, let alone a Yukon. When the auto level was removed were heavier springs installed in place of the stock ones? This would have been a must without the auto level, otherwise you have the basic suspension of a car and lost most of your payload.

Probably a strutmasters kit I'm guessing.

Op,
i used air shocks to assist on my wifes old '01 4wd tahoe that was leveled on the front. I never really pulled anything much, but after i leveled the front, the rear would really squat if i hooked up the boat. Most of the time i just pull the boat with my truck, but sometimes when i was pulling the camper, my wife would tow the boat. I don't think i ever added over 50 psi to them and it helped alot.
I'm kinda curious to see how the wifes new Tahoe does with the boat. Of course i haven't customized it......yet

Yes, they were strutmasters. Was that a bad decision?

No, not at all!
I'd just be curious of the spring weight they sent you.
