First thing, find your fuel filter (drivers side frame rail, about center in the truck...looks like a metal can in the middle of a metal line) and clean the exterior and the area around it so you don't get particulate matter into the new one or the line. Next, pull the fuel pump relay and start the engine. It will die, but it depressurizes the fuel line. Turn everything off, replace the relay, and you can proceed to remove the fuel filter with a couple of wrenches. On occasion, you'll find one with a different type of connector, so make sure you know how to release anything different before you start. Put the new one on, and turn on the ignition switch to run, (don't start it yet) then off, and repeat a couple of times to prime and pressurize it again. Then start, and check for leaks.

1997 5.7L c2500 suburban. I have replaced ignition,coil,distributor,fuel pump,fuel filter,plugs,plugwires,crank sensor,egr,spider injection. After it sits for awhile, hard to start Need advice please

Sorry dude but did you test anything before replacing parts ? There is a step by step diagnostic path to trouble shoot a problem like these. Does it have spark, does it have fuel pressure an is there compression in the cylinders ? After all that you should take it to a ASE certified repair technician !

Fuel pump needs to be replaces on 2000 Chevrolet suburban, do I also need a new filter, relay and induction?

Do you know for sure that the fuel pump failed or do you have a bad relay? If the fuel pump relay is good no you don't need to replace it. The fuel pump unit comes with the sending unit and a sock filter. I would replace the inline fuel filter when you replace the pump. In line fuel filters need to be replaced every 36000 miles. If that filter starts to plug up it makes the pump work harder which leads to premature failure.
