Good for you. Sounds like you found a great TV. 74k miles is nothing.

Time to go camping!

Thanks Dan. Yeah, we are planning a trip right away!

Moose, those are beauties. The 5" additional track on rear is hard to see visually. That is amazing. I had no idea about the marker lights rule.

Someone caught this Quadrasteer with an Airstream backing into a space.

Both of my Quadrasteers are the LT (SLT on the GM) trim level. The 2005 GMC is a four wheel drive with most available options except the built-in GPS. It also has the pull-down DVD player for the back seat.

The 2004 Chevrolet is a two wheel drive, and does not have the DVD, but does have the OEM tow mirrors.

The sun roof option was not available on Quadrasteers because of the roof marker lights.

The Quadrasteer units were manufactured for GM by Dephi Corporation. GM put these four wheel steering units in Chevrolet and GMC 1500 and 2500 pick-up trucks. They also offered the Quadrasteer in Suburban and GMC Yukon XL 2500's. They did not offer this option in the 1500 SUV's as they were equipped with a rear coil spring suspensions and, accordingly, not compatible with the Quadrasteer rear unit.

Quadrasteeer was offered in model years 2002 through 2005.

Hi Brian,

I had a 2004 1/2 ton Sub(1500) and recall it having torsion bar front suspension and leaf springs in the rear. No longer have the vehicle but am pretty sure about the set-up.

To the best of my knowledge, Suburban 1500's starting with the 2000 model year (GMT 800) came with a rear coil spring suspension.

I did a little research trying to verify this. The best that I could come up with is that parts suppliers are offering replacement rear coil springs for Suburban 1500's starting with model year 2000. Leaf springs are offered for Suburban 1500's through 1999.

Hi Brian,

That sounds pretty convincing. I've had 4 Subs so I must have been thinking of an earlier version.

I know what you mean, John. I've had four Subs and two Tahoes over the last twenty years. I am always getting them mixed up in my mind.

The Quadrasteer option never sold very well. It's cost was part of the problem. When introduced in 2002, thw Quadrasteer option cost $5,000. By the last year (2005) it had come down to $2,000, still a fairly high priced option.

Accordingly, GM vehicle with this feature are somewhat rare. Most of the Quadrasteer unit were installed in pick-up trucks. Quadrasteer Suburbans are a really rare duck. I don't have any production numbers, but I have rarely6 seen Quadsasteer Suburbans other than mine. The Quadrasteer Suburbans are very easy to spot with the all the running lights.

happy european QS owner

In his posts on this forum, MOOSETAGS convinced me about quadrasteer in 2005 , and i bought one in 2006 (the 04 model) and had it shipped over to europe.

Due to our very weird road tax system, this vehicle is more expensive to own then just about any other vehicle here, but towing a 32 foot airstream through Europe, makes it worth it..

The only issue i have had wilt Quadrasteer is in thread : http://www.airforums.com/forums/f463...rts-65806.html

This was caused by the custom exhaust that the original owner had installed.

Thanks for this info, AxelBruijnis. Even though we have not yet experienced any problems with our Quadrasteer units, the information about the wiring harness being part of the steering motor is good to know. This information will put me on the right track if I experience a similar situation.

Even though we are down to one Quadrasteer Suburban, our son in Atlanta now has our '04.

Brian

$9,000 with 157,000 miles, and $9,500 for 188,000 miles makes me think I got a fair deal at $13,000 for 74,000 miles.

So if Quadrasteer 'Burbs are rare, just imagine how rare it will be to see a QS/AS combo out on the road. If I see one, I will be yelling out the window, "Hey Moosetags!"
