Re: what should I do with my suburban

Drive it. Thats generally what people do with their trucks [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

But seriously, what are u thinking? Off-road? Lifted Pavement Pounder? street truck?

Is it a 1/2 or 3/4 ton (1500 or 2500)?

If you want ot lift it, there are a few companies that make lifts for the old 2wd's.
If you want to make it a little more off-road worthy after a lift, i'd reccomend a locker and maybe stronger rear axle if its a 1/2 ton.

Hope this helps, any pics?

Oh, and they're a board for suburbans over on coloradok5.com

Is it a 2 wheel drive? There are lifts out there and they are usually cheaper. Use the saved money to regear and traction aidsh

I assumed 2wd when he said "rear wheel drive", but i could be wrong....

Re: what should I do with my suburban

2wd? Lift it and put on some 33"s. I had an 86 2wd pick-up, and with 1.5" of lift I could run them. I think that Rancho still makes a 2" or 3" kit for the old body style.
You should also check into a locker for the rear.
I've got an 89 Suburban, and love it.
