    I Have a 1998 gmc jimmy. I put this belt on and my truck developed a squeek the next day. so i replaced my idler pulley and tensioner. Still squeeled. I then pulled my pulleys off cleaned them and even sanded them for a better grip. For weeks I was pulling my hair out trying to find the noise. then i noticed that my tensioner had almost no pressure on it. and it even looked like the ribs of the belt were not all the way down into the pulleys. Being I already threw out the old belt (obvious mistake) I decided to return it and get a standard ribbed belt without the extra slices in the rib for noise reduction. before i started the car I noticed that this belt was shorter and my tensioner sat differently. squeek was gone instantly. Apparently some vehicles might not like this style belt. and it was noticeably longer. So do your homework and save your old belt until your sure this works.

          Installed this belt along with a tensioner and new pulley on a 99 Tahoe. Belt squeels constantly starting around 1200rpm (but not at idle). Belt alignment was fine and it's not a bearing on an accessory as belt dressing quieted the noise for a day or so. Replaced belt with another brand and now everything is fine. I would not purchase a dayco belt again.

                Bought this belt for my 1996 Chevy 1500 P.U. in 6/2012 to replace the old one that was squeaking. Everything was good until 7/2013 when, without any prior noise, I started the truck one day and it squeaked louder than the old one had. The faster I drive the louder the noise. Whether at idle or at 60 mph it produces a very audibile most irritating noise. Even though 13 months has passed from when it was installed my truck isnt driven that often and the belt has less than 1,000 miles on it. Considering it has a three year warranty it should not be squeaking like this after this amount of time or miles. It will definitely be going back. Now I can take the time and burn the gas to make a special trip to Advance to return this piece of junk. They'll probably want to give me a replacement Dayco. Maybe I'll go along with the game and do that and see how long before that one does the same thing. I should probably insist on my money back and use it towards a Gates belt. What do you expect from a drive belt? For it to not break, slip or make noise. I can say it didnt break or slip so thats why I gave it two stars rather than one.

                            Dayco 5060960 is listed as fitting '99 GMC K1500 Suburban with 5.7L vortec with front and rear AC and engine code R. It doesn't fit as is only 96 inches ... as noted in the last three digits of the part number. When I was in the store I bought the Dayco belt that ended in part number 968 (which is closer to the OEM size of 2,455mm or 96.6") and THAT belt fits and works great. Change application tool on website and customers will be happier.
