My 02 ZL SS has the same bars/steering post as your 01. I bought an articulating bar riser (ABR) from Hiperf and I'm very happy with it. It allowed me to raise the bars vertically without bringing them back. This is way more comfortable than just blocking the post. A few other companies make the articulating risers now too. My risers are the 4" style and I had to make no additional modifications.
this is an 01 that we put firecat bars onto with all the wiring and stuff included. the wiring took a little bit of thinking but it works really well.
just an idea...
as far as extending stuff for risers... yes you need to extend them for anything over a 4" rise. not to mention as i recall on that sled we had to custom make a pivot block because the way the column was designed did not allow us to pivot the riser forward.
