Hey guys, new to the forum here. Just acquired this 99 GMC Surburban k1500 SLT the loaded version. Why did I get it? You know to haul this huge family of mine, five kids, adorable wife and possibly a camper/boat in the future to the river banks of the Ohio near Hanover, Indiana. Its the cleanest used vehicle ive own yet and my first GMC. Within the first 24hrs of ownership; First to service, the tires were replaced with some Cooper Discoverys "PO had some bald eload tires on there", now the ride is nice and smooth on fairly good pavement. Upper ball joint on the drivers side. Purchased what I thought was the complete upper control arm with ball joint but of course its for some other model. Ended up just replacing the ball joint itself, grinding the rivets and pressing out the remainer of the rivets with my HF press. Replaced fuse for the dash/tail lights "PO had a 15amp that popped when it clearly states a 20 amp" :rules:. After some researching and figuring out the dash/tail lights were on the same circuit found the fuse and oh sweet easy fix. Floor boards at rust free the rails and lower components are starting to show the salt belt wear. All in all Im happy with only 141k miles and counting, should get thru the winter in the country just fine.
