Curious for my own info.... do you use the exhaust brake lots? What is the trucks normal everyday life?

Daily driver. About 80% in town. I rarely tow or have any real weight on it. I saw it squat for the first time a couple of weeks ago with a load of lumber in the bed. I run the EB if I'm on a divided highway. I do not run the truck for its intended purpose, but honestly that shouldn't matter. If I were running it harder than designed I could understand it. I believe the factory got a bad run of actuators and some buyers are the ones left holding the bag. I still look at it as and opportunity to upgrade, though. The cost of a reman VGT and the kit I'm gonna buy are about equal.
