I have a 2011 Silverado extended cab Z71 and have a question regarding suspension - is the Z71 equipped truck slightly higher than a regular, non Z71 4X4 Silverado when both are stock?
I ask because I'm planning on lifting my truck 2 or 3 inches, and looking at other trucks on the road it seems like the regular 4X4 Silverados are a bit lower...maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me...
Also, am I correct in assuming there are existing 2 inch blocks in my rear suspension and if I use 3 inch blocks I'm only going to get 1 additional inch of lift in the rear?

Not sure about the ride hight but I do know the shocks are better and bigger on Z71 equipped trucks. Your rear blocks are 1.25" stock.
Here is a little more info on the Z71 shocks...
Below is from Chevy's Web Site......(Silverado's) and it shows the following on what shocks come with the Z71 Off-Road Suspension Package and a Non Z71 4WD,
........The Z71 Offroad Suspension Package comes with 46mm High-Pressure Gas-Charged Shocks.
........The Non-Z71 comes with..........................................44mm Piston Mono-tube Shocks.
