we took our 97 surberban 1500 to a car shop yesterday to get a new fuel pump in. When

fuel pump is in the gas tank in the back of the truck -- Ive never touched the tires while doing fuel pumps -- sounds like some bad luck --!

To answer your question, no front end components need to be removed to replace your fuel pump or even the fuel filter. Like Paul stated the pump is located in the fuel tank.

Since the tire came off, what kind of damage did you incur? Yu might be looking at replacing brakes and other parts.
