I just bought a 2002 GMC sierra k3500 with the 8.1 and allison auto. The original sticker was in the console and the option lists says 8.1 litre vortec with autoride. I looked in the owners manual (useless i know) and could not find anything about that. Can someone please tell me more about this feature.

auto ride generally refers to electronic controled suspension used normally in cars,and heavy duty trucks it consists of 1 to 4 load sensing valves and some type if way to compensate for the load either air bags or hydro suspension. the way to tell is by looking at the axles for a linkage from normally the body connected to the axle
