    ratchet shifting an 02 ws6

    First off let me apologize for the lack of recent posts, the Marine Corps been keeping me right out straight! My question is this, what is the easiest way to install a ratchet shifter into my 02 ws6? Will I have to do a tranny swap to dump the 4l60e or is their a kit out there that will negate the electronic shift in the 4l60e? Any and all opinions are welcome. I am open to all ideas.

    I did some digging and finally found a company that makes manual valve bodies for the 4l60e. Im pretty sure that this is prolly what he is running if he has a ratchet shifter. If anyone is looking for tranny upgrades he is the link to the company that i found offering manual valve bodies.

    PS: Let me sace you all some time, if you have questions about trannys do not call B&M. Customer service has no knowledge of applications or thier actual gear save what you will already find out off thier website

    Only mods can move threads. Since this should have been in drivetrain anyways and you have already posted it there, I will close this one.
