my 2008 suburban spare tire bracket is not lowering - gm dealer Mundy Cheb - houston repairing estimate cost at $300-400 . same problem developed with my 2003 suburban . Home is Sask. canada, I am now visiting Houston Texas and asked gm dealer for oild change and R&R spare - just in case it was needed . This is common problem GM should pay cost to fix - vehicle is still on gm new warranty!
anyone had similar problem - I bought this suburban in late 2009 and had tire R&R at hoemby GM dealer there also
