    Holy ****. Did you sleep through grammar class? If its a half ton, I believe the towing capacity is around 6-7K, 3/4 ton probably 8-9K. These are rough estimates though and if its a suburban I promise you it has 3.73 gears in it.

    RPO code (from the sticker in the glove box) for the 3.73 is GT4 and 4.10 is GT5.

    Shameless self-plug :D

    Towing capacities, along with lots of other info, can be found on my Brochures page -- find your year, then Suburban, and the technical stuff tends to be towards the back.
