Suburban/Tahoe/Yukon Rear Doors

Question for the mechanically inclined though: as the newer models (90s and above) have the self-adjusting rear suspension/automatic level control rear suspension how is it towing 25+' trailers? This weekend will be the first time towing ours with a self-equalizing hitch and sway bars... doesn't that defeat the purpose?
While I haven't had experience with the current version of GM's automatic level ride, I have had quite a bit of experience with the version used through 1990. I have had it on two of my tow vehicles and haven't experienced any unusual problems so long as the factory (GM's) recommendations regarding hitching up are followed. There should be a section in your owners' manual that describes the process to be followed when hitching your automatic level ride equipped tow vehicle to a trailer equipped with weight distributing hitch.
Good luck with your automatic level ride adjustments!
