Default 2007 Denali hard ride w/Arnott shocks

Hello, This is a 2007 Yukon Denali suspension issue. About 14 months ago, I purchased this Denali with bad shocks. I replaced them with Arnott
AS-2715 rear shocks, SK-2671 front shocks (Premium) and the Compressor P-2793 (w/dryer and relay). Today, the ride is bone jolting hard along these many potholed streets. The related fuses (30 amp RTD, 30 amp Stud1 and IGN3) do not look to be blown, though the top of fuse 61 (Automatic Level Control Compressor) is missing. I hear the compressor activate at first start but not after that. I also hear a soft “click” sound every once in a while, on corners I believe. Arnott asked me to check the compressor, to make sure it was venting the excess air. Could it be an air leak? Could the height sensors be an issue?

Any thoughts or suggestions towards improving the ride?

Default 2 years later

OK, here it is 2 years later and the Yukon still rides hard. I put some new 275 55R20 all season tires on it, at 35 psi, but that didn't help any. Without any mention of the ride, while getting an oil change, a local shop asked why the truck rode so hard, so it's not just me.

Because the front shocks lost their dampening ability with the new Arnott's, and they are now simply gas filled shocks, does that make the ride harder?

Has anyone mounted Arnott SK-2671 shocks on a Yukon with success?

Thanks

OK, Belle Tire inspected the suspension for free today. Right front Arnott strut is already leaking. Under 3 years old. Will not be replacing them with Arnott.

Kind of surprised at the lack of response to any of the Arnott posts.
