I have been looking at suburbans in the same yr range (up to 86) an it looks quite easy from what I saw of the frame mounts on the front end. I am curious if these parts could be harvested from a suburban and bolted and welded into place. I already know that I need to get the undercarrige out of mine and the burb's into mine. shock mounts and spring mounts, tranny mounts, ect....
Thought I would do an update with all the recent research I have done...I was going to use the Lunati 60101Lk cam. But after learning about recent oil anti-wear additives, I have decided to go with a Hyd. Retro Roller Cam...

I have narrowed it down to these 2 cams:
Crower 0409 retro roller

And Edelbrock's 2208 retro roller:

For a comparison, here is the lunati flat tappet cam that is being replaced with one of the above cams:

If you were to choose between the Crower, or the Edelbrock, which one would you go with considering I am using Summit/Dart vortec heads and a Pro Comp airgap intake with 3310S Holley 750cfm carb....

I am not interested in different cams from other manufacturers because I plan on staying with the valve springs in these heads...Which cam is the better, or as I see it, there is not any difference, or not enuf to notice in the seat of my pants...So far, Edelbrock is the cheaper price doing a search on the internet...About $295 shipped....
