    I dont think any chevys came with bilsteins from the factory. I know some Nissan's had them, I think of newer Frontiers. I also want to say some toyota pickups had bilsteins too. They may be hard to find and they may not even fit.

    The only Chevy's that I know that had them stock was the 2000 Chevy Tahoe Z71 ( old style ) like mine! I am sure there may have been some others, but that is just my guess. Good luck!

    My 02 Avalanche had them I don't think my 08 does... So I would say any of the Z71's from 04 or before. They are good shocks and will last 100K

    I talked to a friend that works at a shop he said none of the newer style trucks came with bilsteins except for the s10s and another vehicle I can't remember. He said he has seen quite a few of the newer trucks come in and those tennecos are broke in the rear. The older and newer trucks don't use the same style shocks.
