Frame beaming is the technical term for the rear hopping at 45 or so MPH... go a few MPH up or down and hopping is gone, GM has no known fix for this, all they say is if you put 2-300 lbs in bed and hop is gone then you have frame beaming.

I have an 05 reg cab that vibrates pretty good at about 50 mph. I haven't tried it yet, but I was going to take my spring clamps from truck pulling, and clamp the springs good and tight to see it it made any difference.

Would going to a lighter spring pack like deavers help with this problem?

To answer the original question NO air bags won't stop the problem. Unless I have 1000 lbs in the truck and I use the air bags to level it.
