    Can anyone confirm that either the Bilsteins 5100s, Fox or King OEM coilover replacements will fit on the 2017 Tahoe Z71? I have contacted all 3 manufacturers and they say they "should" but they cannot confirm due to them not having done fit tests yet for the 2017.

    If none of the above, any other coilover replacements, which level?

    My goal is to level a 2017 Tahoe, LT Z71 by replacing the coilovers.

    Thank you

    2016 lt z71 here with 5100 Bilstein up front and rear with no issues. Don't know why '17 would be any different...

    Yeah, I am pretty sure it is the same but not certain, hence my dilemma. Your truck looks sick BTW! Was the chrome window accent a pain to paint black?

    There's been no published changes between the model years that would effect shock fit. Some people have suggested the '17s have different body mounts, but ive seen no confirmation of that. And even if so, shocks should be the same.

    My chrome window surround I blacked out using gloss black vinyl wrap. I did it myself one weekend. First time I've ever used wrap and it came out really nice. Would recommend you try it. I bought my black vinyl wrap from www.metrorestyling.com. I also bought gloss white to do the chrome around my headlights/front bumper...
