I've got to file a minority report on this one.

The issue is getting the most value out of the $630 in labor for the r/r of the transmission (the seal is about $20 list). If you plan to keep the car and drive it into the 250K range, you should go for the rebuild. If you plan a new ride before that, go for the seal.

All IMHO.
