    what brand of 5 pinion planetary did you go with, the aftermarket ones are actually weaker than the factory 4 pinion, the only way to go is the factory gm 5 pinion sets

    I have to agree with jay here. The only time I've seen a new gm 5 pinion planet break was when the output shaft broke as well. Did you break the rear planet?
