This would be cheaper than a new car or suspension:

It depends on what you're long range goals are. I like the 9th gen Suburbans (1999.5 - 2006). That won't be in your gas mileage wants but: they were built to last a lifetime, the 4x4 is excellent, there's nothing that rides as good, parts are relatively cheap, there's tons of knowledge out there to repair the thing if it breaks (and many repairs are not difficult), the 5.3 engine is powerful and tough, if serviced the 4L60e transmission is as good as any on the market, if you need to you can sleep in the thing (they haul a lot of stuff), etc.. Mine is 20 years old and my daily driver with 247,000 miles on it.

Just wow. My rig is a 1978 GMC Suburban, I thought the 19mpg was bad. This is a 3 ton beast.
