    20210206_105237.jpg how do you align the hood on a 84 suburban? the hood is higher than the fenders and cowl at the rear of the hood.

    Is the rear of the hood possibly resting on the air cleaner? I had this issue for a bit before I realized hood was doing that, changed to a 1" shorter filter element and problem solved. JM2C:party52:

    I will lube everything

    Good. After you do that and open and close the hood a few times, then go to the rear of the hood (hood closed) by the hinge and push down. If it moves down, the hinges are not out of adjustment.
