Bought a 2001 suburban. 150k, No rust, leather and heated seats.

I could never convince my self to buy a brand new car, Unless I was extremely rich, So I bought this for 1800. 😁

Any recommended mods?

Pcv delete? Is that good?
CAI probably after winter.
The thing already needs new cats so I'm looking into exhaust options right now.

I might sale it after winter. After I fix all the little quirks.
If I don't end up keeping it, It rides so smooth. Definitely a highway king.

Update, I got an exhaust installed (corsa) . Will be posting video/pictures later.

I need to replace the rear main seal. It leaks a little bit of oil from their. Anyone recommend a good shop for that around the northside?

Also need to change/upgrade the suspension. shocks/tie rods/lower and upper arms. Doesn’t need it but the parts look old.

2inch spacer in the rear springs, turned the torsion keys up.

I want to get 33 tires.. Maybe 35. I will be getting heavy duty Silverado springs in the rear and front, I will also be getting bigger keys, For another 2 inches. Hopefully it won't be to much for the control arms.

I will be getting rid of the running boards
I'm also looking for a push bar / grille guard without the headlight covers,so I can get a winch.

Get the extended front upper a arms, if you lift it too much without them it'll eat tires and upper ball joints. A bunch of lift kit places sell them separate. Looks good.

I'd love to have a burban or something that big as a daily. I also feel bad for every person driving towards you at night.
