Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the air cleaner assembly if necessary. Disconnect the electrical connectors from the alternator.

Engage the electrical connectors and install the air cleaner assembly (if removed).

The alternator is the adjustment point. Loosen the bolts holding the alternator to the engine and slide the alternator in towards the engine. This will allow you to remove the fan belt. However, if you also have power steering, the power steering belt may have to be removed before the alternator belt can be completely removed. Loosen the bolts holding the power steering pump assembly to the engine and slide the pump towards the engine to remove both belts.
must removed the shield that covers the the fan in front. once that's removed you could get a better clear area to get to the alternator.
I believe your Suburban is the same as my '96 pickup. Once you've removed the two screws there are two tabs on the outside of the assembly. Simply rotate the assembly around towards the outside of the body and push in on the other side to disengage the two tabs. Should come right out.
There are 2 hex shaped rods protruding from the top of the headlamp assembly. You can see these above the headlight after you open the hood.
