Everyone has already said it, but 4-hi. What year is your suburban? Some had the Auto AWD option transfer case. That said, with decent tires I've never needed 4x4 on the road. I recommend you find a slippery field and try out your vehicle in 2wd,

There is a large convenience factor having it. If you get in a collision with party fault instead of wasting your time trying to collect and deal. You pay your deductible, get rental, fix your vehicle and let them collect your deductible back. $400

Save your money so you could buy another car if need be. Insurance is like gambling, the odds over the long run are with the big companies, not the little guy. Act responsibly and save the money so this insurance is not needed. In the long run, this

I dropped collision on my 1995 Escort long ago. It was an easy decision since it was costing my nearly $300 per year on a car worth maybe $1000 at the time.

A quick update: Commute home last night was the normal 25 mile highway run. VCDS showed 102C all the way, and I parked the car in the garage as I normally do. This time the temp didn't rise over the 102C, and actually dropped to 99C pretty quickly.

It's a bit thinner, maybe not enough to make much difference. But closer to your spec oil. It has a higher listed flash point than the 0w-40, and a good HTHS rating. Just another option. Conventional thinking is the closer the two numbers, the
