A 1990 Suburban (V1500) is NOT the same as a 1990 K1500. As you know, the old body style carried over on the Suburban, while the trucks were updated.

The steering and suspension parts are NOT the same between the two.

Please take a moment to rate my answers by clicking on the stars at the top of the page, that's how I get compensated. If you need more help, just let me know, I am happy to follow up.

mine is the v1500? It's the 4 door 4x4 SUV, not a pickup truck.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
here is the VIN# ***** it helps 1gkev16kxlf521755

Right, a V1500 is a 4WD Suburban. R1500 is a 2WD Suburban. C1500 is a 2WD truck, and K1500 is a 4WD truck. These are all unique and different vehicles.
