    Do you know which transmission you need? Is your suburban a 1500 or 2500? 2wd or 4wd?

    4L60E if it's a 1500 series
    4L80E if it's a 2500 series

    First welcome aboard. [​IMG]

    The E in these trany designations mean these are electrically controlled by your computer. If that helps.

    As everyone else has said, you are going to have the 4L60E or 4L80E, the E being the important part here. That means big $$. However, there should be a large variety of tranny shops in your area that sell rebuilt transmissions. One place that ships nationally for not too unreasonable prices is Phoenix Transmissions (http://www.phoenixhardparts.com/). My uncle and I ordered new transmissions from them. Their service seems to be a bit slow, but it's probably because they have a pretty good backlog going on. My uncle just got his tranny in when he ordered it before Christmas, and I still haven't recieved mine. You might want to give them a call. Otherwise, depending on what happened, you may just want to get your existing one rebuilt.
