Sounds like the control module went out. When they go out it's done. It sits under the internal coil inside the dizzy.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

I think you can get a module tested at Autozone and if it's bad replace it with a GM Delco
module. Since you have power at the BATT terminal and the coil tests good you may also have a bad pickup in the distributor or the button in the cap might be bad.

HEI modules do not like external voltage regulators because they can generate voltage spikes that can fry the modules. The Delco modules are more resistant to spikes and last longer.

These are obviously off shore but a lot of the members here have bought them with good results and they stand behind them.
