Actually, if you buy a "Sachs" shock/strut from an aftermarket vendor you're getting a lifetime warranty and it's virtually the same part as the OE from the dealership. If you buy from a dealer you'd be correct. Just wanted you to be aware that there are 2 different lines of Sachs products, as there are with Bilsteins. The Bilstein shock from the Chevy dealer for your Z71 truck is not covered by the same lifetime warranty as the aftermarket Bilstein you'd buy online.
