I have a question? To convert my lights (makers and tail) to LED would it be better to get the LED relays (bleenkers & hazzard), or get the in line LED load equalizer? I'm asking because my bleenkers will bleenk fast with one but it won't bleenk with both front and back LED bulbs in so what is the best way to go? And I have a 07 Chevy Silverado classic. PS. anything will help
Hi I was wondering if you would know if I could take a 98 5.7 4l80e tranny and swap it into a 2004 2500 6.0 suburban, Does the can bus system come into play here? Tia

Electrically it will work and will bolt in, but you will have 1 less bellhousing bolt since the 98 doesn't have the bolt hole at 12 o clock. And I'm pretty sure the torque converter is different between them.

Hmm should I worry about that extra bolt hole or not?

Without it you have quite a large area without a bellhousing bolt.
I have been driving my 6.5 detroit diesel for about a week daily on small roads going about 40 mph and when i checked the oil after a week it had not changed but after i had driven it on the highway going 60 mph i saw a decreas in oil and i don't really know what it is but i think i could be that the cdr valve is bad. Anyone have any sugestions on what it might be?

Rear defrost switch repurposed for heated mirrors
You wired the heat for mirrors to the purple wire for the rear window defrost grid in your 94 2500 . My question is.. Did the 20 awg wires from the mirror's, over heat at all ? After being tied into the 12 awg purple wire coming from the 94 suburban defrost switch?
I have a 1996 GMC P3500 trying to replace the power steering pump seals. Definitely need some guidance if anyone wouldnt mind pointing me in the right direction
I have a 2011 Chevy suburban 2500 6.0l and it's overheating can't figure what's wrong with it I fixed everything you can think of it goes only to 3/4 then when I drive it and reviv the engine it goes back to half way
Recently had Upper Tranny seal replaced. Since then, truck is throwin codes for 3 injectors and EGR? Do I need to reprogram?
Does anyone know the tow capacity of a 1995 K1500 gas Suburban..4wd, V-8?? I am getting conflicting info from different sources, including GM. Need to find out before we buy an RV trailer....one trailer we are looking at is 4265 lbs. The other one we really like is 5765 lbs. I've been told the old Suburban may not be able to handle the heavier trailer. Would love to hear some of you towing gurus out there!

Drummergirl, I found some info online, I assume yours is a 5.7 Liter V-8. Take it for what its worth, I found two websites saying that your towing capacity is 6000 Pounds, don't hold me responsible for that. If I were you I would also check your owners manual if you have one, it will be more specific. Also consider the loaded weight of the trailer, water tanks and cargo will add to the weight of the trailer.

One must also consider the combined gross weight rating of your Suburban and travel trailer. You can exceed that combined rating and get into problems also. The ratings should be listed in your manual or possibly inside the drivers door.

Last but not least, braking ability must also be considered. Trailer brakes and a brake controller are a must when towing that kind of weight. Also most of the time trailer brakes are required by law with trailers with a certain gross weight.
