2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Crew Cab Z71 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


I bought a 2004 Extended Cab Z71 in
June and in Sept my Wife rolled it and
it was a total loss; the truck
hydroplaned on rough wet pavement,
spun around and rolled in the ditch. I
found that the suspension was too
ridgid and that the vehicle took on a
mind of her own once she took to rough
road esp. if the pavement was wet.

After this I decided to purchase a
2005 Crew Cab Z71 and I find this
truck the very best for driving and
handling,I do however find that the
suspension is still more rigid than I
would like and so I alwalys now carry
balance weight in the box,( 300 lbs) I
have found that this makes a big
difference to the stability / ride of
the truck especially on rough / wet

Best Features

Interior space

Worst Features

Needs at least one other power port. Needs retaining strap on inside cover of console as well as needs visor clip as was on other Silverado trucks in the past, again for holding miscellaneous materials. Lumbar support needs to be standard.
