    You replace the stock springs for z71 springs. You can use spacers for additional lift but I would recommend against it because you would have to crank your keys so much that there will not be much suspension down travel in the front end to level the truck. Fender heights for my Tahoe with z71 springs and left keys are 39.25 rear and 38.75 front. I left a little bit of rake in it because the rear will settle some after the springs are installed. That is with 275/70r18 tires (33.2")
