    i would say that you should be fine. would it be a good idea and extra insurance sure. you can get a nice high amp alternator from a company that builds them for that price too!
    but as far as the suburban alternator i believe its the AD244 but im not sure if its a direct fit. i know you will need a longer belt because of the larger case though. you could probably just add an extra battery or 2 and youd be fine. good luck
