Air lift rear suspension

2009 Chevy Avalanche towing my 2012 SVS264 the weight of the trailer makes the rear of the avalanche "squat" to the point I can't get the reese dual cam w.d. to work properly due to low clearance at the hitch. I was looking into purchasing air lift inserts for the rear coil springs.The frame is also used for the chevy tahoe I'm told.
Any ideas if the air inserts work for the coil springs.They say you should have 5 links for the r.d.c. to work properly does that include the chain link that is hooked on to the lift assembly.

Sounds like you might need more washers in the head bolt. Also, drop the TT to the ball where it is just covering it with the tongue coupler. Then put on the bars before you put the weight on the truck That should keep it from squating the truck too much beforehand. If you need to adjust, just take the tongue weight back off, change the setup and put it back on.
