New guy here!
Hi everyone! Just wanted to introduce me and my Suburban. My name is Bob and I bought a 1987 V1500 Sierra Classic Suburban a few weeks back. She needs some work, but overall not bad and I drive her daily now. I've replaced the fuel tank (40 gal), fuel lines, sending unit and pump, and mounted a set of 32x11.5's I picked up cheap. I'm looking for good resources for body parts (need tailgate, and doors, and fenders inner and outer), and I am contemplating installing a suspension lift, a 2" kit with 4 new springs, shocks, and hardware. The folks at Rough Country quoted me about $600 plus shipping. Comparing to prices of stock replacemant leafs, this seems reasonable to me. Any input? I'm wondering if a 4" is a better option, it's the same price, but I don't want to deal with vibration, etc. and also think it might look dumb with the 32" tires. The Sub will be mostly street driven until I find some good spots to four wheel, and also learn how to four wheel! This is only my 2nd 4wd, the first was a 96 Dakota that I was scared to take off road because it was brand new. Needless to say I like the Sub much better!
