    Reviving this thread, thanks for the write up! So far so good in my 2004 Suburban Z71.

    What did you do to your NBS GMT800 Tahoe/Yukon Today?

    Did some more tinkering with mine to get it how I want it! Installed footwell lights on my 04 suburban, installed the LED diode mod so that I don’t have dim map/cargo/vanity lights, added a 3/4” rear coil spacer to correct the driver side lean, and tightened my parking brake cable by adding a...

    Sagging front end 2004 Z71

    Also curious if anyone has a solution for the driver side lean. Mine is about 3/4” lower on the driver side front and rear measured from the fenders. I saw another forum someone mentioned replacing the swaybar links helped which did nothing for me. Might just add a 3/4” spacer on the rear left...

    Rear defogger not working, has 14v

    Thank you for this, I found out my permatex glue is not conductive. If I hold a small wire directly from the tab to the copper grid lines I can feel it’s start to warm up almost immediately. Time to redo this with a silver epoxy, don’t want to risk shattering the window with solder.

    Rear defogger not working, has 14v

    So after days of searching I can’t seem to find a solution. I have a 2004 Suburban Z71, recently purchased, and on the tailgate the driver side defogger tab was broken off the window. So I buy the permatex tab glue, glue it back on and it is rock solid. I then go to turn on my defoggers and bam...

    2004 Suburban Z71 front drivers side axle/cv leak

    My bad I didn’t update earlier, I got it out!! I separated the tie Rod from the knuckle so I could turn the knuckle left as much as possible, and loosely connected the slide hammer. Not 30 seconds later with two dozen good wacks and it popped right out. Got the new seal in and so far so good...

    2004 Suburban Z71 front drivers side axle/cv leak

    An update for everyone- it is my stub axle seal. I replaced the diff fluid and that made it very obvious what the problem is. I now have my CV removed and trying to remove my driver front stub axle and I cannot for the life of me get it removed. It’s been about 3 hours of using pry bars/...

    Is this Auto Trak II fluid a fake?

    As a follow up if anyone else is wondering this is what I expected to see-

    Is this Auto Trak II fluid a fake?

    Hey all, I bought some auto trak 2 fluid for my t-case but the bottle is something I’ve never seen before. Got this off of Amazon. Is this a new bottle? I’m thinking it’s a fake. Front and back pics attached.

    2004 Suburban Z71 front drivers side axle/cv leak

    Good point, yea I’ll get some simple green or dish soap on there and clean and report back.

    2004 Suburban Z71 front drivers side axle/cv leak

    Yes from reading before I posted this thread all signs pointed to that seal, however since my front diff fluid is completely full I ruled that out. Maybe it leaked and was fixed by the previous owner and a non-issue? I recently went down a very dusty road and no dust stuck on this grease to show...

    2004 Suburban Z71 front drivers side axle/cv leak

    I checked around the area. Don’t see any obvious signs of leaks. The hydroboost area is spotless, I have some gunk residue below the power steering fluid cap but it looks like that’s just from filling it and spilling an ounce. The ps fluid level is a little low- it was still on the dipstick but...

    2004 Suburban Z71 front drivers side axle/cv leak

    I have a 2004 Suburban Z71, and noticed a leak of some sort at my drivers side CV where it bolts to the axle. It’s on both sides of this flange, and doesn’t seem fresh- it’s dried out, and caked on there good. I also checked my front axle fluid and it’s so full it came running out the full bolt...

    New from Denver- 04 Z71

    It’s been in NM and CO it’s whole life, not a spec of body rust. The frame wax has worn off and has some minor surface rust so planning on fluid film to prevent any further damage. Here’s some more pics too-

    New from Denver- 04 Z71

    Hey all, my name is Alec and I’m excited I finally have a Suburban! They’ve been on my radar for a few years as a large road trip/overlanding rig after having a few 4runners and Isuzu Troopers. Picked up a mint condition 2004 Z71 with only 83k miles locally, and it’s already got some camping...

    2nd row 60/40 bench “60 part” width?

    Thank you! I think I’ll stick with my current seats for now.

    2nd row 60/40 bench “60 part” width?

    Hey all, first post here! Wondering if someone has the width of the 2nd row bench seat and then also separate width dimensions of just the “40” part and just the “60” part? Trying to figure out if a bench would work better than my captain seats for storage options. Thanks
