But my Trailblazer looks like it is lower then others that i see. I drive a 2006 Trailblazer LT EXT. When i pull up to any GMT platform car it seems like mine is lower then the others. Should i be worried?

How much lower is it? Distance from ground to fender? How's your ride quality?

We (father and I) brought it new. Now it became mine. The ride quality is fine in the front. The back is another story.
We just changed the front suspension and it did appear as if the height got back to normal. But after 2 months it looks lower again!

If it's been used for towing with a high hitch weight, or a lot of cargo, the rear could indeed be sagged. Z71 Tahoe/Avalanche springs will restore the original ride height and 1.5" more. Airlift1000 bags inside your current coil springs can add cheap adjustability. New shocks may DEFINITELY be on the docket if you have 50-100K miles. Or more. On the originals.

Heavy Cargo check. We have put so much cargo in this car for no reason. Guess I should go buy new shocks with my next pay check! :wootwoot:

As long as you know shocks do not affect ride height. A common misconception. You may also need new springs after you post your wheel well measurements.
