03 chassis ground location?
Can anyone tell me where the chassis ground wire is mounted at? I have tried to trace once while working on other things, but couldn't really tell where it went.
I'm have some alternator issue and thinking it may be related to a corroded ground wire. So I want to go ahead and replace and clean up contact points.>>>2003 Suburban K1500 LT<<<

You dont necessarily need to use the old grounds when replacing them.
Just run new wires from the Battery to a close spot on the frame, spare bolt on the engine block, and convenient point on the body (preferably the Firewall as it has thicker steel and works better).
Run a new ground from the body to the frame and body to the engine also.

Never enough grounds
I had a buddy who had an earl schieb $99 paint job. Afterwards the speedo cable kept failing. The added paint had reduced the engine/chassis ground. The engine was grounding through the speedo cable. He added four ground straps and a fresh speedo cable and the problem was gone.There is no way to happiness....happiness is the way.:yipi:
