Did you do anything to address the front or did the add a leaf just even it out or give it a very mild lift in the rear.

Besides proper LT (light truck) tires, if your tahoe needs anything more than new shocks then theres probably something wrong with it. It shouldnt ride that sloppy.
My tires are getting old and will probably need to be replaced after this next winter but they are LT tires. I made sure of that when I bought the last set but like a said, they are getting pretty tired though... The LT tires helped at the time though. Definitely a good thing to swap out for those that haven't.

I don't think there is anything wrong per say with the suspension for it's age and usage. It's a '99 with a 140K miles on it. I've always thought it was too soft but it's been regulated to wife use for the past 3 years and it didn't bother her. Now it's going to be my DD again and it's drives me nuts. The shocks may be past their prime to which would amplify the situation...
