You better look for another truck, sounds like someone is trying to unload a piece of junk on someone who is a little nieve about what there buying, there plenty others out there with nothing major wrong with them, and maybe for less money, you don't need to be buying someone elses problems. STEER CLEAR.

I have a 1998 GMC Suburban that pops out of gear sometimes I have to put in four wheel drive then back into 2 wheel drive then it fixes itself. I had the tranny and transfer case rebuilt but it still does...

Sounds like your talking about a transfer case problem,
need to have the truck to look over ,test,road test etc
Can't do anything from here,without the patient

Im installing a 1996 tranny ina 1994 gmc suburban k1500

Will not work, 95 and up are pwm Lock up units.93 and 94 were on/off lock up units.Pump,valve body and solenoid resistance and different. You will have a no lock-up condition and will burn up transmission.
