1985 GMC C2500 Suburban Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1985 GMC C2500 Suburban

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your C2500 Suburban's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your C2500 Suburban and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1985 GMC C2500 Suburban to maintain its performance power. Follow GMC's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
