Repairing, restoring or modifying your ride just got a whole lot easier!

Overview

I have owned this suburban for the last 5 years or so. I bought it sitting for roughly 10 years with a 350 sm465 and 3.42 gears. I will try and recap everything I’ve done to it so far.

I found it surfing Craigslist for $1100, and I had been looking for a 4 speed for quite awhile. I decided to pull the trigger. I trailered it home and slapped a starter and cleaned the q-jet. It ran and drove decent, but burned a lot of oil.

I drove it around for about a year before it decided to throw a rod. I found a deal on a 94 k3500 with a bad trans and severely rotted body, but it had a fairly fresh 7.4. I swapped the 7.4 in the suburban using a carb intake and factory q-jet.

Drove it for a while and decided I wanted to lift it to better clear my 37s. I went with a set of terrible pro comp 4” lift springs up front and blocks in the rear. This was a mistake it rides terrible and has no suspension travel at all.

That brings us up to date. I will be documenting the rest of the build as I go.
