i was told i need new brakes in the front and the back. I was told that it would be less expensive because i didnt need something... i think they said i did not need a new drum.
price of front and back brakes without a new drum on 2008 Chevrolet Suburban 1500
Here it would average $140 per axle, but there try the Estimator at the top of of the page for your zip code.
I'll be happy to perform a complete brake inspection and quote the job at no charge. Then we can talk about what the Suburban needs and what your plans are with the vehicle.
