Be sure to check the front struts and mounts. Open the hood and try to bounce the front-end up and down as much as possible while looking at the strut mounts.

If it is coming from the top of the motor, I would say it is a lifter making the noise. If the sound is coming from the lower end of the motor I would say you have a rod knocking. If it is alifter you can replace just that lifter, if it is the rod I would consider a rebuild.

Is it valve clatter or spark knock. You should not have any valve noise or knocking noises from the engine. Has the service engine light ever come on.
You can have the Suburban scanned at your local Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts free of charge.
Let me know.

If it's a ticking noise that speeds up with the speed of the engine, it's a worn valve lifter.
You can try tightening it down by taking the valve cover off and tightening the bolt on the rocker arm, but don't tighten it too much, you will end up with other problems.

The valve adjustment usually isnt done unless there is valve noise. If you think its valve noise, have the dealer check it or a shop that does a LOT of Toyota work. Special tools and shims are needed to adjust the valves. Its a LOT of work and will not be cheap. You will want to replace the spark plugs at the same time.
