I Want to lift my truck but it has the Stabilitrak on it, is there any concerns that I have to look for when ordering a lift for it. Was looking at the rancho 4" kit or a zone offroad 4.52010 silverado LT 5.3l z714x4 blue granite metallic

Stabilitrak isn't something to worry too much about with a lift. You will want to disable it when you are in 4-hi it is automatically disabled when you are in 4-low.2006 Trailblazer 4X4, 2.5" lift, Z71 rear springs, Skyjacker rear shocks

Yea every time you start the vehicle you have to turn Stabilitrac off again.
But since the switch is a two wire switch (I pulled the panel on mine and checked out the switch and connections the other day) I'm willing to bet an enterprising mechanic could set it up so that the system didnt power upo on start but had to be turned on by the switch.
But theres no real reason to turn Stabilitrac off in 2wd so just leaving it as is probably works best.

Some people don't like having to remember to turn things off under certain circumstances -- for fear they might forget. I'm not like that, but my dad, for example, has become that way in his older age. This kind of audience ... which for whatever reason wants to disable it once and not have to bother with it, again, because they feel that's what's best for themselves and their needs ... is the group my fuse suggestion was aimed at.
Now the question is ... is there a fuse for it? I don't have stabilitrak so I can't say, but I'd expect there to be one. It'd be good to know if there is one and, if so, whether it's in-cab or under hood.

I am sure there is a way to disable it. But it isn't something you want disabled on the road since if you are in an accident and it is found to be disabled your insurance company is not required to pay out.2006 Trailblazer 4X4, 2.5" lift, Z71 rear springs, Skyjacker rear shocks

But if the system works correctly and was only turned off by the switch they could never prove if it was on or off at the time of an accident since it cycles with the engine.
Not sure why your insurance would tell you they wont payout if your involved in an accident if found to be not using the stabilitrac, it isnt a law requiring use and under Federal insurance codes it's illegal to deny insurance claims over use of an optional vehicle safety device, which since it has an on/off switch Stabilitrac is considered optional.
