Hi ben,I would suggest checking the tie rod ends,ball joints,stabilizer etc, also chevy uses a worm gear type steering box and will inevitably wear a groove in the assembly so adjustment may not be possible due to the age of your vehicle though I do not think this would be the problem, does the truck pull one way or the other? maybe check for a bent rim or wheel balancing,hope this helps,good luck Ben

How can I put the suburban into 4x4


I have a 1994 4x4 Suburban. In mine, there's a stick on the hump in the floor, and I'm sure this is the case with yours too. This year model does not require that you get out and lock your wheel hubs. There are labels that are supposed to light up to tell you if you're in 2wd, 4wdHigh, or 2wdLow, but mine don't seem to work. If it's dark out and I can't see the labels, I just have to remember that 4wd High is all the way towards me, 4wd Low is all the way forward, and 2wd in sort of in the middle (but closer to me than the actual middle).

To shift into 4wd High (which is what you'll use for most purposes, like driving in bad weather), just pull that stick back towards you in one swift motion. You can do this while you're parked or while driving forward down the highway.

To shift back out of 4wd High and into 2wd, just push that stick forward a little bit, to where it was before.

To shift into 4wd Low (which is what you'll use only for extreme conditions, like off-road mudding or getting out of your driveway in super deep snow), you have to be stopped. You can NOT just shift into 4wd Low while you're going down the road. First, put it into Neutral (with the shifter on the steering column), Then push that stick on the floor all the way forward. Mine is hard to push, so I use my foot.

To shift back into 2wd from 4wd Low, you need to be stopped and in Neutral also. Pull the stick back towards you to the same position it was in before. (Not all the way towards you, or you'll be in 4wd High instead of 2wd.)

Hope that helps.

I had my 94 sub(2500)checked and it needs tie rod ends, adjustment sleeve, idler arm and a center link plus alignment. abs light stays on and when braking i have pulsation but its stops ok. it also has...


It should fix the play in the steering but it won't do anything for the ABS. There's also nothing out of line with the work he is suggesting, in terms of steering play. Hope this helps.

To much play in the steering wheel 1996 suburban


There could be play in the steering box, but it is more likely to be worn/loose steering components (ball joints, tie-rod ends, etc.). Check the joint in the steering column for play as well.

Im having play in my front tires


Do you mean, that when it is jacked up in the front, there is play as indicated by wobbling the wheels at the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock positions and the 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock positions?

Or, do you mean that the steering wheel shimmies when going down the highway?

Maybe the front end should be checked for play and any parts such as ball joints, bearings, or tie rod ends should be replaced as needed.

Turns over but won't start


I'll tell ya what a diesel mechanic told me..."fuel injector pump". It seems that the new low sulfur diesel being sold now wears the seals out on the older pumps. I changed the fuel sending unit and that seemed to help a little, but now while driving it will shut down, and it's hard to start. Going to have the job done now. Part is very expensive! Hope this helps.

1994 chv sub/ 4x4/5.7 Lt./350


I would start with the simple and easy things. I would check upper and lower ball joints ( can explain correct procedure if unknown) I would check the tie rods and lastly the sway bar bushings. Also i would check for equal and correct cold tire pressure. Let me know if you need anymore assitance I would be glad to help. Thank you for using fixya.com
