eliminating rear A/C

Greggle on Wed September 01, 2010 10:40 AM User is offline

Hello. I'm new to the forum and have a quick question. I want to eliminate the Rear A/C on a 1997 Suburban. Does anyone make tubluar plugs or caps to fit into the connections under the passenger floor? The connections are for the rear A/C tubes to go to the rear of the vehicle. I guess I could cut the tubes and weld the ends but it would be easier to just put pre made plugs or caps in. The rear lines cost $600.00 and its more than the truck is worth. Thanks.

There are kits available to "block off" the rear a/c for many vehicles. We are not supposed to advertise on here out of respect of the forums host, but I don't think they offer block off kits. Over the course of the last few years we have developed a line of these block offs. Right now we offer 15 different kits that cover most domestic SUV's and Vans. Your vehicle is our biggest seller. You can e-mail me at [email protected] Thanks!

Take care,

Did your lines rub together and cause a leak? I see that alot on 97 Suburbans. We can fix that w/o pulling the lines out of the truck.

Another option for just blocking them off is to cut the ends off a truck at Pic-A-Part. Weld them shut and screw them on where yours are or weld yours shut.
