Just adding my 5 cents since I know a shop will try to break your wallet.
Sorry to bump this one up, but I promised to keep post updated.
Well I'm 5 years older and don't have a garage anymore so I took the Envoy to the mechanic who quoted me for $1800 to replace the air pump and no guaranty that it will be a fix they said, they refuse to do the $5 fix even that I offered to pay $200 for the 30 mins labor.
Armed with the knowledge of the $5 fix on this forum I went to a mechanic I found near an Autozone and for $50 he did the fix in about 30 minutes.
I guest my first fix 5 years a go was some how a very good quality job or the damage was less because the new fix in about 10 or 12 hours psi went from 65 to 55 lost about 2" high from fender to tire.
I forgot to ask the mechanic to put gasket maker on the "T"
For the moment I'll be pumping air every morning to 65 psi, but I'll be making the transition to metal springs due to the lock of [I can't work on the car my self anymore] a place to do fix it my self.
So for those out there still coming across this post, my advice is to use the gasket maker and the air will hold much longer. Also check your ride high sensor my was broken, don't know if they did that at the first shop where I got quoted for $1800 or the towing. The mechanic at the Autozone found it and let me know about it(with the broken ride high sensor the pump definitely will not turn on because the sensor is extended all the time).
I'll buy the springs and will bring the Envoy to the same guy to get them installed.
