Makes much more sense after the Suicide Mission. Before the mission raises a lot of questions.

After.

Gameplay wise: Before, there is a bunch of upgrades that can help you with the SM.
Story wise: After, its the only way it even makes sense.

There is no difference, but doing it after the suicide mission makes it A LOT more sense stopping the Reapers from coming after their initial plan failed to...

*SUICIDE MISSION SPOILERS*

...create a human Reaper to attack from the inside rather than blasting in the hard way.

Ok, thats what I thought. I also save LotSB for after the suicide mission as well. After I complete the final mission, do you think it matters whether you do SB before or after Arrival?

Story-wise, it fits better after the SM. Gameplay-wise, it fits better before, as there are mutliple upgrades that would be useful for the rest of the game.

If you do this after the suicide mission, will it carry over to me3? I thought the game would auto-save your import character right as you finish the final mission?

This is exactly the question I am seeking the answer for.

Though, I suppose upon finishing post-SM DLC it would be easy enough to overwrite the save file with the updated transfer info.

Still, I'd like to get confirmation from someone at BioWare....
