Default wbody store shift kit

how many have done the w body store shift kit ?
and the install directions are pretty vague and the install vid seems to be gone off their site and all the install pics

should be the same as any other wbody kit, take the accumulator out and put shims in the 1-2, 2-3 cylinders possibly a spring depending on what the kit came with i normally just shim them

Just get the shims at Ace Hardware. I believe they can either be nylon or aluminum.

I'm not sure I would bother with the shift kit unless I was already changing the fluid.

This might be helpful. Its a spring kit, but the install is the same.

Double check the torque value for the trans pan bolts. Some values listed on the internet are too high. I broke one off, which can be a big pain.

got one installed results are slightly underwhelming for now, but the trans may need to re learn a bit
