May I ask: Why do you think a person should have to tow anything to buy a diesel truck? My 06 CCSB has the most interior room you can get in a vehicle with two row seating and is more comfortable than most vehicles on the road. Properly tuned, my 6.0 will outrun most cars on the road and get better MPG than Ford's gas trucks. And, I can carry more luggage than most cars can fit in their trunk and entire passenger compartment. Don't even get me started on what I can haul in the bed when necessary. "Pointless", yes the question was.
To the OP; I've never ridden in an Avalanche. Do they somehow ride better than the rest of the Chevy trucks? My Super Duty does. They are the best riding trucks out there!
I like the Rancho RS-5000 (and 9000) shocks, never tried the Bilsteins but people seem to dig the 5100's.
