2008 Colorado suspension type

I was looking on eBay for a lift kit that won't break the bank and ran across one that was supposed to fit my 08 z71 I asked if it required any special tools and was told no then I asked specifically about the torsion bar tool and was told I would not need on my truck this seemed odd to me so I'm asking the community what kind of suspension do I have ?

If you have a z71 then you have torsion bar front suspension. You do not need a torsion bar removal tool for our truck. Just uncrank the keys to release the tension. The kit should come with instructions. Just follow them.
