Help me diagnose a problem! + are brake jobs hard?
Recently my 88 suburban (3/4 ton, 5.7liter, 4x4) has developed a "hollow sounding howl" on acceleration, especially 40mph and up. The "howl" is followed by a belt whine/squeel above 50mph or so, like a belt is moving faster than whatever it's attached to. (?) Could it be a failing device- such as exhaust air pump or something? (I dont have A/C) Any ideas are appreciated!
Also, how hard would a brake-job be? (front disks on 8-lug 10bolt and rear drums on a SF 14 bolt) I have the Haynes manual for my truck, but I'm asking for an experienced point of view. Or should I take it to Midas or some similar brake place?
Thanks all, I dont have a lot of mechanical knowledge but I want to learn and I'm sick of paying some dude $80 an hour.
