I agree that the front suspension springs and shocks are different on Z71 and ride marginally stiffer when I test drove a V6 Colorado LT and Z71. That said, it wasn't night and day like on the previous Gen I which had the obvious front torsion bar suspension and different rear springs also. The ride height was also upped for Z71 back then unlike now except for a possible small difference in tire size change.
I find the ride plenty firm in our LT trim V6. It suits our needs and ride height is great.
The Gen 1 Z71 was more Off Road capable then the new Gen II Z71 is.
