Newbie 05 Burb
New to the forum. I just bought an 05 z71 suburban 40K miles. Great ride really enjoy it so far. I need/want to get a few things for it.
The 3rd seats tubmles forward and I would like to have a cargo liner with the latch holes cut out for the 3rd seat, that can just stay in place with the 3rd in use or tumbled out of the way. It would be nice to have a liner that covers the entire cargo area and foot area on the 3rd seat. On long trips or if I am hauling stuff around the seat will be tumbled forward but as soon as the kids and their buddies want me to take them somewhere the seat needs to come back into use. I have already notice this will be a regular routine for us. Anyone seen anything like this?
Also wanted to know if anyone had done headrest dvds. They look cool and I wanted to see if there was anything I should watch out for.
Lastley I wanted to ask about the stock pads and rotors on this truck. According to the carfax report the front pads and rotors were replaced at 25K and rear needs to be done now. I have read a little about performance pads and slotted rotors but I have no clue which way to here if it make that much of an improvement over the OEM gear.
Thanks and I look forward to seeing the repsonses.

First, to the site.
Sounds like you've got a good truck on your hands. There are a lot of manufacturers that make cargo units and what not for the burban, so you should be able to find something pretty close to what you want/need.
Some people here have gone with a headrest for their video/dvd system, and they like it becuase it's portable and can be removed and taken to another vehicle...also gives you multiple screen options sometimes as well. I reviewed the Yukon XL Denail that cames with the media system and that had one center video screen that seemed to be pretty comfortable for the 2nd and 3rd rows to see as well. It's always an option to have it roof mounted, but that's a bigger project.
Not sure about the brakes/rotors. I've never gone with the high performance ones, but I hear that they can offer better performance, expecially if you're going to be loaded up or tow anything.

I am also a Newb and ran accross your thread. I saw you mention that carfax said the rotors/pads were replaced at 25K? Does carfax even show stuff like that? I mean I was under the impression (even though I havent used carfax within the past 5 years) only accidents and body work showed up. Thats pretty cool if that shows up.99 Suburban 5.7 Gas 4WD

to the site. I think there might be something about the headrest DVD players in the Audio, Video and Electronics section. Have you went to a dealership to see if they have something for the 3rd row, because most of the time if they have something you can buy it aftermarket.Matt

First welcome aboard.
Aftermarket brakes are more expensive to buy first then they can not be turned like originals. I believe. So when they wear you will have to replace.
One of the guys on here came across this place for aftermarket parts.
They have cargo mats for just about everything. They ain’t cheap though.
The DVD screens for head rests I was unable to find in a quick search though.
