Guys, i am getting ready to place this order for a transmission for my 95 TA....Can you take a look and see what you think and recommend any changes?:frown2:
Where are the rest of the parts...? That is a pretty sparse list! This is a very typical "box" build that most "transmission shops" will give you. They don't even scratch the surface of a proper build.
There are no sprags, no sun shell, no 7 disc 3-4, no 3-4 apply and backing plates, no solenoids, no bushings, no accumulator pistons, no steel piston upgrades.......
And I would absolutely NOT use a Transgo kit. You don't need a shift kit to make a 60 shift well.
I'd also be a bit skeptical of a $250 2800 rpm converter...
I'm not trying to be a jerk, but this stuff drives me crazy, and I'm trying to save you a bit of heartache as well.
Here is the response i got...."Ohh yeah! Solenoids and bushings all come with the OH kit, its a zpack 3-4, accumulator and piston upgrades come with the upgrade kit. My office guy just dont know much about what goes in the builds he just knows how to write up the paper work lol"I will message him now and see if this is the list or if he has a more comprehensive list...I do:frown2: appreciate your input sir, i have had enough of a headache already lol....
cocobolo95, thats kind of what i was thinking also...Any idea what dynamic may charge to rebuild it? Thanks!Sounds like bull S**t to me. There's no way a $100 kit is going to have all the parts you need to have a good reliable build on a 4l60e.
Just the parts for trans will cost $500 or more.
Why don't you ask dynamic396 what he would charge to rebuild your trans the right way + shipping to you.
I agree with Dynamic.....this is a stock rebuild with a junk converter and you're paying too much.....hell, they don't even have the price of the unit itself. Are you having to supply a core? Personally, looking just at that sheet.....I'm not trusting this.Guys, i am getting ready to place this order for a transmission for my 95 TA....Can you take a look and see what you think and recommend any changes?:frown2:
I have contacted the 2 most popular rebuilders in my local are and both said $1600 to $1800 for removal, rebuild and install...How does this sound?I agree with Dynamic.....this is a stock rebuild with a junk converter and you're paying too much.....hell, they don't even have the price of the unit itself.

Have you priced the cost of a rebuild in your area?
It was a few years back, but I paid about $900 for a rebuild.....that included removal, reinstallation and road test.
Thanks Dynamic, and please do PM me sir, I am interested!I have several different build packages for the 4L60E, depending upon the application. I'll shoot you a PM with information if you're interested. If nothing else, it can give you an idea of what's necessary for a well-built 60E.
The parts (or lack thereof) that I'm seeing listed from the shop that yours is at is actually pretty typical of a "transmission shop". Most shops don't know any one transmission better than another. They order a "rebuild kit" and a "shift kit" and put it together. They don't have any setups of their own, and none of what they do is based on much experience. They just throw parts at them and hope they stick (hence the Z-Pak...you don't want a Z-Pak). And, no... There's no way on God's green earth that all of that stuff is included in a $100 "upgrade package".
$1600 today for a rebuild that includes R&R? I'd say that's not bad at all, especially if they offer a 2-year wartantee.I have contacted the 2 most popular rebuilders in my local are and both said $1600 to $1800 for removal, rebuild and install...How does this sound?
Yeah, the Alto 9 disc is worse than the Z-Pak (which is pretty bad...and expensive!)! Super thin frictions and steels, plus a thin, super-cheesy mild steel backing plate. A terrible product for the 4L60E/700R4...The 9 disc 3/4 clutch sounds good but to get all those extra clutches in there the steel plates must be made thinner. So the steel plates between clutch discs can warp from heat..
