Spent some more time working on the Suburban this weekend. Spent way too much time messing with the oil cooler lines, beyond frustrated on that front. The hoses I put together would have worked but were too thick to route through the gap between the differential and engine without being pinched or rubbing on everything. I didn’t want to have to run them under the differential, so I broke down and ordered PTFE/stainless hose and corresponding AN fittings in -8 size, shouldn’t have any issues routing those. Now I am just waiting for them to arrive, hopefully I can then put the oil cooler lines nightmare behind me.

I did get the radiator mounts replaced with polyurethane, the stock rubber would let the radiator move around quite a bit. Got the AC condenser installed and the bracket for the oil cooler modified to accept my new larger oil cooler.
