LTZ Z71 AND LT Z71 difference?

Postby badkarmaracing [OP] » Dec 11 2010, 6:24pm

I just bought an 07 z71 ltz and have noticed that my truck sits lower than other peoples z71 lt's. Every truck I have compared to is 4wd and so is mine. What's the difference? Blocks ? Springs?

I believe that the LTZ package is the only trim level available with autoride, which is a self leveling feature. That, and the LTZ can have a different tire size than the LT. Combined, that may be causing the difference you see.

I hav the same exact truck 07 LTZ 4x4 and mine is also a bit lower in the front than the 07 LT 4x4 I had before this. I just installed the RC leveling kit and it helped alot. by the way I have the 17s on mine the 18" and 20" where an option in 07 on the LTZ trim level.

Yeah I thought you could only get factory 20s with the 4x4 package and 18s with the Z71 package now? Who told me that?

I would imagine just a leveling kit. Simple spacers between the top of the front coil springs and suspension/frame mounts that left the front 2.5/3.5" reducing the factory "rake". You can also lower the rear instead, using a lowered leveling kit which is rear leaf spring shackles that drop the rear to reduce/remove the factory "rake"
