    Default Looking for 2 more years!

    I'm looking to keep my 2001 LT 1500 Suburban 4wd another 2 years. It's been a great vehicle- we've spent many vacations traveling Colorado, NM, and Texas in it. It's been across Engineer Pass in Colorado at 12,000 feet- no small task.

    I hope to use this forum to get some tips on maintenance to keep it in top shape. It has 84,000 miles. I'd like to replace all brake parts and upgrade/replace shocks. Also looking for tips on tune-up and other engine maintenance items.
    Driving in Texas!

    Welcome to the club!

    I just did a tune up on my 2001 S-10, and I wanted to go with all of the MSD stuff but the mechanic said to stick with the AC Delco stuff and it is running like new now! I also bought a set of 4 Edelbrock IAS shocks for the same truck, but I will be putting them on next summer. I am sure you will find some great ideas from the guys on here, see ya round...............AMY
