Thnx for the heads up - u-joints were fine.  While having all of the drive line fluids replaced, all drive line components were inspected with the intent to replace or repair any obvious wear or defect.  Nothing lasts forever, but this Avalanche was well maintained and the recent services and P.M. will hopefully get me the reliability and towing performance I am looking for.

A couple of items I would recommend

A Super Steer Idler Arm support.
http://www.supersteerparts.com/products/trucks,-vans--suv/general-motors/chevygmc-2500.html

Get a solid front sway bar and add a rear sway bar.

Front bumps from a HD 2500 Z71

Bilstein 5100 Shocks

The 2500 AV is a beast but it does have a few weak links.

That a look over at the 2500 specific towing mod area.

Or the 2500 performance mod

I forgot get a steering stabilizer.

Yep - thnx - Bought it about a month ago, after looking for about 6 mos.  Looked at 6 2500's in a three state area before finding this one. Most of the ones I looked at had "lots" of miles, rust, or were just "used" up.  This was a one owner, fully loaded, new tires, brakes, battery and only 97K, paid $ 8,900.00

ha that's exactly why I bought mine from my old man, sure my Sierra was amazing for a 1500 but it just couldn't handle the new toy hauler, so bring on the 2500! sure it has 194k miles but I only paid $1,600 and it was meticulously maintained

There was a 2002 listed with over 200k miles for $2500 recently on craigslist. Crusty and beat down but ran and drove.

I am back!  After a 6 year 'sentence' to Hawaii.  I left my girl on blocks in my garage in Reno.  After starting her, the fuel pump died.  I'm here to tell you that is a challenge to change in a garage with no room on either side and you have to crawl under from the back.  She has just over a 100k now.  I pulled the wheels thinking I'd have to do a brake job and put the wheels back on.  Still over 50% of both the front and rear factory pads...unbelievable.  I love this truck.

Got a little bit of looseness in the front steering.  Reading threads here now about that.  This truck has been the best purchase I have ever made.

Still alive...212,000 hard miles. 2002 had her for 6 years. It's crazy to think she's 16 years old.

I just bought mine a month ago. 2002 2500 Avy with only 111k miles. Talked the guy down to $7500. It's in great shape, with only a small dent in the back driver's side door. Only drove it a couple thousand miles before it died in our garage. Thought it was the cps, but that didn't fix it. Thankfully someone had changed it to the new style with only 1 o-ring, so it wasn't too bad to get out. I'll be changing the fuel pump this weekend, which hopefully fixes it. It starts right up and runs for a few seconds before idling down and dying. It hasn't thrown any codes. The fuel pump makes a weird clicking sound when you turn the key on instead of a steady whine until it builds up pressure and shuts off, so I'm pretty sure it's the pump going bad.
