    I am looking for a late 80's early 90's suburban, are the specs for the engine the same as for the K5 on the specifications page of the site? I perfer the 89 and up due to the serpintine belt, are there improvements in the engine/drive train that make 89,90 or 91 better than any other?
    Thanks,
    Adam

    Same stuff as a Blazer. '88 - '91 are all basically the same drivetrain. Grille was updated for '89.

    The Suburban give it also as K20, then it seems more like the PU's

    The 89-91 10 bolt front axle has a 30 spline shaft instead of the previous 28 spline. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
