Hi! I have a 1990 Suburban 4x4 with an automatic transmission and the 350 engine. I love it! I'm wondering what the best year Suburban is? We don't do serious off roading. The 4 wheel drive is just for the few times a year we go to the snow. So I think the solid front axle is a bit of overkill. I have done a lot to make this suburban reliable. But as I look at the list of "little" things that I need to do to make it useful to us I am wondering if I would be better off starting with a newer vehicle. There is a bit of play in the steering. I also need working Air conditioning. Do newer ones have less play in the steering? I think I want to stick with the TBI engine because it is so simple and reliable. Thanks for your input!
