Without labor it ran near $4k in parts. I've seen some bare bones ones without the remote or pressure sensors and gauge, plastic line, one air compressor, and black painted tank for just under $2k. You won't find one specifically for the GXP. You have to get a universal GM kit and have a very qualified welder with airlift experience fabricate those front airstruts.
You don't want them breaking, and drilling the holes just right to keep camber/caster within drivable limits is important.

what are the chances you have a blueprint for the front air struts to share with me? i have access to qualified welders, so ive given this some thought and id like to try to do this as well. if at all possible would there also be a comprehensive parts list? i figure since yours is solid that id pick your brain about making this and anything you would have done differently.

haha. every time i look at that i have to clean up. kudos.
