I am going to drive around some neighborhoods until I find a truck that has the tranny i want. Ill come in the middle of the night and start taking it out. If I dont have time to finish that night, ill cut some engine wires so the truck wont start and my plan wont be discovered by big bob. Then ill come back the next night and finish removing the tranny. Before you call this stealing you should know that I will install my transmission in the truck and fix the wires. Next day there will be a new forum user asking why their brand new performance transmission doesnt shift right and looks old and crusty. haha

Sure cure isnt going to fix a noise.

Spoke with a reputable tranny mechanic today....he said to try to change out the carriage bearing 1st to see if it clears up the growl..he said a worn bearing or worn out rubber buffer ring can cause issues that make a growling noise. If that doesn't fix the problem at least it was a $30-40 attempted repair than throwing $1800 at a problem that might not be the issue.

Thats a good point, make absolutely sure the noise is IN the transmission before you tear it all apart. I could be a rear end or other drive line component problem.

Im giving advice over the internet, i can only go by what you tell me. My advice can only be correct if what youre telling me is correct.

I said what I said because you said it needed a rebuilt but you wanted to install the sure cure kit to see if that helped. That's all. Either way, good luck!
