I just had my shocks replaced on a 1998 Chevy Z71 and now the front end rattles over the smallest of bumps Any ideas why?

If the front end is rattling after shocks were replaced on a 1998 Chevy Z71, it could be possible that a bolt was left in the wheel well behind the hubcap. It is also possible that not all of the bolts were tightened down securely.

What is the difference between a Z71 and a regular 4x4 Chevy truck?

Z71 is the Chevy "off road" package. The standard 4x4 doesnt come with as many options. agree with the first answer as Z71 is the GM code for "off road package." it basically includes bilstein shocks and skid plates, along with some trim features. The 4x4 Chevy is just what it says, only a 4WD. The Z71 on the other hand is a 4WD but it also comes factory with skid plates, improved bilstein shocks, different gearing in the differentials (smaller gears, and a locker), it has upgraded cabin air filters, and most Z71 models from 1997 and newer come with push button 4WD "on the fly".

Are Z71 silverado pickups always 4wd?

yes, Z71 is the designation for the "offroad package", inc. shocks and skid plates, etc. That is true, But make sure that someone did not just go down to a swap meet and buy Z71 stickers and just stick it on the rear quarter panels. I have seen many 2 wheel drive Silverados with the Z71 emblems on them because a lot of people think it makes there truck look " COOL ". The best to tell if it is a 2wd or 4wd is to look at the 5th letter of the VIN C=2wd K=4wd
