I was a little skeptic about the torsion axles at first but with all the horror stories about leaf spring axles I think I'm better off. The TT did ride good on the trip home, but seems a little bouncy set up in the drive. (I don't have the X-chocks in though) Are these axles harder to stabilize? I had a '66 Volkswagen with torsion suspension that was bullet-proof, just hope these are as well!
If you Z-71 is 4WD it has Torsion Bars on the Front! Youroo!!

I would bet you have Dexter axles and if you do and it is mounted by Rockwood using the side mounting option, one of these will get you 2 5/8" of height.

Just like spring axles, lube the hubs according to manufacturer's directions. They should last for years.
