Replaced breaks on my 93 suburban 2500 4x4. Know truck will not stop and the pedal goes to the floor..

What did you replace? Calipers? Wheel cylinders? Did you bleed the system? If calipers were replaced, are they on the correct sides? The bleed screws need to point to the top of the calipers on each side.If all ok, suspect a defective master cylinder

My ignition cylinder is worn down and the key wont start the car anymore. is there a way to start it without having to buy a whole new cylinder?

I just had that problem with my 93 acura, and it wasn't my whole ignition cylinder, it was only my ignition switch, which only takes about 45min. to an hour to replace yourself. You can find the D.I.Y tips online. Part runs about $80. Replaced it, and the car starts on the first turn every since. The cylinder parts cost way more, so I would go the other route first. Hope that helps.

93" k1500 suburban- ignition key

I just saw your newer post..or the original post with more information available.

Your K1500 has the ignition switch positioned on the steering column. The switch is control via a linkage rod that is actuated from the key cylinder.(which may have failed.) But I suspect your problems may be in the switch itself.

See the procedure here at Just Answer Chevy to remove and install a new switch:
Fix Your Chevy With Your Own Hand

PS: After removing the actuator rod see if the lock cylinder rotates freely...if it does the switch is the source of your problem.

Remove ignition lock to switch link 1995 suburban

The ignition lock assembly contains two components: a lock cylinder to deter theft and an electrical portion that supplies power to electrical components such as the radio, electric windows, and windshield wipers. The electrical portion of the ignition switch also provides power to the starter motor to start the engine.
The ignition lock is an anti-theft device that prevents a vehicle from being driven unless the ignition key is in the ignition switch. If the ignition key is not in the ignition switch, it 's impossible to turn the steering wheel.
To replace the ignition switch cylinder lock, the trim panels around the steering wheel are removed. Then the tamper-proof hardware that attaches the ignition lock assembly to the steering column is removed. The ignition lock assembly is removed from the steering column, and the lock cylinder is replaced. The new ignition lock is reattached to the steering column, and the trim panels are replaced.make sure you dissconect battery first the 1997 had a recall on the ignition switch dont no if the 1995 had a recall if so they will replace for free
