    Default 2011 Suburban Z71 pkg.

    I saw a 2011 Suburban with the Z71 pkg the other day.It really looked sharp.Would the ride and handling be that much different than the normal Suburban suspension?

    Z-71's have stiffer springs and shocks, but there not to stiff. I like a little stiffer than stock ride because I feel like it handles better and I feel I have more control.

    From what I understand on the Tahoe and the Suburban the Z71 is a appearance package. Skidplates are optional and there is no difference in the suspension.
