Since 'burbs don't come with manual transmissions, has anyone converted, plan on converting, or given thought to converting their 'burb to manual trans from automatic?
Wow, you jumped on that thread. I hadn't even completed the poll, and you had already responded....:lol:i heard it done and since it is based on the truck this should be an easy swap if well planed out. you will need the pedal assembly and the tranny and might need to swap the drive shaft. you want to search and make notes and take pictures and a plan then once all is in place swap it out.....mike
I have to agree. I've NEVER owned an automatic transmission vehicle in over 15 years, the Suburban is my first one with an automatic.Why would you even consider coverting a Suburban to a manual transmission?
Over here we convert a manual to an automatic it's the American way to drive. :rules:
Ah see! Theres that Canadian connection again. We're everywhere, man.I take it this for late model Suburbans?
I've seen as late as 1991 Suburban's with 5spd's. The U.S. Navy and Air Force used them at overseas bases, and the Canadians had some at Comox and Cold Lake.
I have seen that used. Remember the 86 Hurst/Olds Unplugged with the lightning rod shifters. That was kinda cool for its time.When I was twenty I said I'd never own an automatic. Now that I'm fifty, I'm not sure I'd ever buy another car with a stick. Unless of course it was like those cool F1 cars with paddle shifters and a clutch that only had to be used from a dead start. I did run a Lenco in a drag car.....that would be a rad trans to have in a burb.
