    look at the codes in glove box

    Conventional: there are numerous RPO codes for different types of conventional suspensions, the most well known being Z71 and Z66
    Premium Smooth Ride: indicated by the RPO code ZW7.
    Autoride: indicated by the RPO code Z55

    After rereading your post I see that you said that it is Z71. There you go! It has the Z71 suspension package. Almost any truck shock will do. I suggest spending the extra $5 over monro or gabriel and ordering bilsteins from autoanything.com. For my 05 yukon xl they are $72 each
