my suburban

Post by Admin on Fri Feb 08, 2013 10:06 pm

this started out stock a few years ago,then of course it got bigger tires-then a lil lift,then more tire,then more lift,then i broke the rear end a lil over a year ago.i decided there was no point in putting in another weak 1/2 ton 10 bolt rear,and if i went stronger that would mean i would have an 8 lug rear and a 6 lug front..plus i wanted more lift..so instead of buying a ifs lift kit i scrapped all the factory junk and put real axles under it. i went thru a couple setups but have settled on a 8 lug 3/4 ton chevy front and a 14 bolt 1 ton rear with 4.56 gears. the engine is basically stock,its a 4 bolt main 350 with a 4l60e trans that has a 2500 stall converter.behind that im running an 80s np208 pass drop transfer case. that was an experience...making a speed sensor work on that was a ton of fun.maybe i will do a write up on the specifics,but it works. im running a set of stock f150 rear springs up front,with a custom fabbed drop hanger and a crossmember for the shackle mount. that got me right at 10" of suspension lift.the rear is running stock leafs,with a shackle flip kit-4 inch lift blocks and longer shackles. gave me the same 10" of lift i got in the front.a while back when it was ifs i did a body lift so i could clear 36s,that 3" is still there too giving me 13" of total lift.it rides and drives better than it ever did ifs..plus parts are dirt cheap now compared to the unit bearings.

forgot to update this,i traded the burb for a cadillac escalade...which i already killed the engine in.i do have a zz4 vortec engine thats going in it soon-but im gonna try a set of rod bearings and a new oil pump first to see if the engine thats in it is salvageable and can be swapped into the jeep possibly..
