I have had this suburban for almost 7 years and am friends
with the original owner. We both took excellent care of it and
I've made it my project, replacing most components, adding a lift
and big tires, great shocks, new paint, and everything you can ask for!
Hopefully I'll get some pics up soon.
Thats a clean looking sub. Wish I could sell my 04 Yukon XL, I'd rather have one of the older ones. Good luck.

Wheel em till they break and sell em on EBAY
Yeah, it's really in great shape. My friend's dad bought it new in '89 and I bought it from him in 2000. He took really good care of it and then I took it over with the goal of making it like a new truck. Besides the things listed above, I've also replaced a ton of other things like the blower fan motor, IAC valve, TPS sensor, fuel pump, completely rebuilt brakes, etc. Basically I tried to replace just about everything partly so I could learn about cars.
I just got finished cleaning it up today, vacuuming it out, etc. and am going to be really sad to get rid of it. But I bought a '98 burb 4x4 for a really good deal so now I have no choice. I'm going to have to start over though with all the upgrades/replacements (rancho's, brakes, etc).
If you want an old truck, I really think you'd be hard pressed to find a better old burb than this one.
If anybody is interested please let me know asap. I've got a guy from Candada and a local guy that are both very interested so I think it will likely be gone soon.
