Not really true. Coils work awesome for towing. And they work awesome for ride comfort when the truck is empty. Of course my truck is a 2500 so the coils are a lot stronger than the 1500's. If you...

If you are moving on the property and not touching public roads, you'll be fine. If the Silverado is 4x4, throw it into 4 low and you'll have more grunt than you'll ever need.
