View Full Version : C30 Suburban?

Pretty slow in here....

I guess I have to share my wrenching experiences of my 2wd daily driver :assshake:

Was going to *just* do the front brakes on '84 C20 Suburban, but it turned into a 1-ton brake upgrade, and new balljoints. [L]

Now I've got flat spots on my tires and teeth marks in the steering wheel [41][39]

You just need to put some 40s on that thing, then the new brakes won't brake so hard......:D

(a bit of fender trimming, and voila!)

Been there... done that... What a Blast!

Just today I was greasing all 18 fittings on the front end. Hmm.. the idler arm isn't taking grease. Give it another few shots and the bugger busts apart! [aahh] Never seen that before.

The lip (that holds the tin plate with the zerk in it) peeled right off. [V]

Good thing I can wander into the back yard and harvest another ;)

Damn that sucks.....

Harvest another??? Must be nice having a micro wrecking yard ;)

Micro is correct! I'm using up my junk left & right [36]

This is all the junk I replaced on the Burb. Every piece came from my 'yard'. [^]

- upper control arms (both)
- lower control arms (both)
- balljoints (all 4 bought new years ago and installed in control arms, but never used.)
- knuckles
- rotors
- calipers
- brake pads
- brake hoses
- master cylinder
- front springs
- tie rod
- idler arm

Hopefully I won't need to pull a wrench on the daily-driver for a good long time...

... and put some attention to my red 4-door bush pig [:p]

(My motivation has just increased - I just picked up a camperette, and got my welder up and running [L])
