Adjust the striker plates.

I have a 1996 Sub. The doors do not close as easily as they once did. Adjusting the striker plates is one way to fix it but in my case it would not help. One the suburban door hinges are two pins. There are small metal sleeves with slightly different diameters for the top and the bottom. It is those sleeves and hinge pins that have caused my door to become loose. The fix is to repalce the pins and sleeves. About 12.00 per hinge. You have to be careful becasue there is a spring on the hinge and the door is very heavy for a one person job. I


There are just some simple things that your average person just can not do. this is one of them. saying that just makes you want to prove me wrong. so my question is, if your not smart enough to figure out your problem why are you suddenly able to correct it.-give up now before you make things worse. (well maybe just hit your latch pin with a hammer and get on with your life). what do i care what i say nobody listens to me anyway

To set the timing on a 1994 GMC Suburban you need to warm up the engine while the car is either in park or neutral. Next, you adjust the distributor until the timing is set to where you want it.
