The orifice on Suburbans with rear A/C is located near the Y shaped junction block in the tube between the condenser and the front evaparator. It is on the right side near the radiator support. The orifice is in the tube between the junction block and front evaporator. If you look close there is a slight crimp in the tube to keep it from sliding too far into the tube. You should be able to disassemble the tube and remove and replace it.
Sorry for the late post but I just saw your question.

01 Suburban AC question

check the space between the ports, it is common to have both fittings on the same line if and only if the orifice tube is located between them because thats what seperates the low pressure side from the high pressure side, the high pressure side will be warm to hot when the a/c is running, once the hot liquid hits the orifice tube it turns into a cool vapor, so if you feel one side is hot and one side is cool then the orifice tube is whats between them and it is true that the low and high pressure sides can be on the same line.

Rear ac on 94 surburban blows warm, front is cold. Is there only one orifice on the dual air system.

The rear air has an expansion valve in the rear of the cargo area right next to the rear evaporator. There is no orifice or filter between the condenser and the rear expansion valve so if there is any debris in the line it will clog the expansion valve. The orifice under the hood is only in the front circuit so if the front is cooling and the rear is not, most likely the expansion valve is clogged and needs to be replaced.

There is a factory service bulletin on how to r&r the expansion valve. It requires some cutting since they did not design it to be replaced. Part of the service bulletin is adding an inline filter at the outlet of the condenser before the front and rear flows divide. That will keep the rear from clogging up again.

I have a 94 Suburban and I had to do this in about 1998. With the filter I haven't had any problems since.
