Be careful on trannys, and remember to check with the dealer. I have found that in most cases they are in line or cheaper on a factory unit. If you want better than factory, look no farther than TBR in Atlanta. He even presses out some common failure bushings and replaces them with roller bearings. The problem is that he doesn't sell to the public, just distributors. If needed, we do sell them in the partsshop. Specify TBR unit.
