    Coil springs, leaf springs (both give 1.5" drop), on some models the ZQ8 gets a quicker ratio box, and some get a third "hop" shock. All the ZQ8's get 16" rims. Someone can chi9me in here with more specifics.

    On the trucks you also get a rear sway bar.

    the zq8 suspension consists of the following.

    1.5" lower coils in the front
    better shocks
    larger front anti sway bar.

    quick ratio steering box

    1.5" lower leafs in the rear
    a rear anti sway bar
    better shocks.

    trucks also got a frame brace that connected the front two bed mounts.

    the 3rd shock was not a zq8 specific option it was orginally put on the zq8's to help reduce wheel hop but then GM started to put them on most 4.3/m5 combo trucks as well

    the package also included 16" wheels and tires
    trucks got 235/55/16's this lowered the truck another .5"
    blazers got 235/60/16's

    I don't think the Blazers got the quick ratio box or did they?

    the quick ratio box is part of the zq8 package, so yes blazers got it as well
