    18 months later on our 89 burb.

    We got a check from a settlement and were considering some other vehicles. Nothing really *wrong* with the Suburban, but it's an 89 with 150k and it was time for...

    The metal handles themselves aren't problematical at all. It's just the separate button pice. I mean, sure, I guess new springs wouldn't suck, though there is no issue with them. But at $45 each for...

    on my 89 burb the rear door exterior push button has cracked, and it's a matter of time before the rest go. I've found complete handle units for sale, but...

    Code 24, VSS

    I've got an 89 GMC 1500 4wd Suburban. It's throwing a code 24. I've managed to find out a few things, but the haynes manual is remarkably silent on the subject.
