http://www.gmtruckclub.com/forum/sh...988-suburban-project-mostly-DIY#axzz24xaBEK00 Well, here is my 88 2WD. Currently has 183K miles (stock engine, tranny 5.7 V8) and here is what happened in the last few weeks. - was thinking about replacing upper/lower front ball joints and front wheel bearings. - was in the process of getting new tires. (currently running 275/60/15. I got a set of used alloy I planned to put used 235/75/15 stock size) - two days ago, my tranny showing problem. Has trouble get into gear in cold, rev high and kick into gear (rabbit jump/chock/whatever you call it). Once warm up, you don't feel the BIG jump but still can tell the delay. (That issue has been on for a while and now just more serious) I think the tranny is 7000R4 and I assumed it's going to cost me probably $1000-$1500? I really don't know. Should I keep it or fix it? Over the summer, I have been spending time/$ to get things going (you can see from the link above). By the way, radiator leaks again (stop leak didn't work) and sound like need a new radiator also.
