Suburban 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles
1998 Suburban K1500 = repetitive problems with rear brakes not self adjusting, replaced brake shoes twice, replaced springs and all hardware once (since 2000) with no avail. Rear brakes don't work well, front brakes need to stop vehicle antilock brakes have to kick in to stop vehicle. Transfer case now leaking and wondering if rear brake problem is the cause of transfer case problem. Have there been any recalls on this vehicle?
