    I would think something else is severely wrong if you're going through shocks like my grandma used to go through a pack of cigarettes. I personally went with Koni 4/4's and Strano lower springs. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    I'll add this. the older T56 like in the 98 only like Dexron III transmission fluid. Tick suspects that the IV I put in killed my transmission and required my rebuild from them. They believe IV eats away at the friction material on the syncros and once they're gone everything else starts to go...

    Looks like I can still get the old style compressors at the local parts places. Since we are heading down this weekend, I'll try to better diagnose it and may jump the pressure switch to see if the compressor will engage. I did retrofit the AC system for R134 a while back and it was running good.

    Start at Post #59 in this thread: http://www.ls1.com/forums/f66/k-member-swap-upgrades-163761/ I dropped my K-member to swap in a tubular UMI piece so I had lots of room to work. Not sure of the clearances with the K-member in place.

    I will second Scott's motion on the oil pan gasket. Our car was leaking oil and I was convinced it was the rear main. Swapping the seal isn't awful, but you do have to drill out two (2) rivets that retain the stock gasket to the pan. Let me see if I can find the thread with pics of where I...

    No, and I do not really recommend it either. Using Type F in a GM transmission is an old rodder's trick for firmer shifts and better feel. The rule of thumb these days is to only use the older style fluids - Type F, Dex III, etc... in older GM transmissions like TH350, TH400, 2004R, and so forth....

    That's not the real PITA you gotta worry about. The real issue is the K member clearance if you are still using the OEM k Member. You will need to raise the motor up about 2" min in order to drop the pan enough to get the old gasket out and the new one in. As long as you don't remove the...

    Could be from the oil pan and or the bracket that the oil filter mounts too. It is a separate piece that bolts to the block and has a gasket. On the passenger side check the oil dipstick o ring.

    A Texas Speed 228/232 .600/.600 cam then is what you're looking for. May require new springs though. It will give you a nice bump in HP but still have street maners. Also get a set of LS7 lifters. They are the stock replacement for all LS motors for wuite a few years now. IIRC they...

    I have a 1998 WS6 with 243 heads ported and polished. and performance cam.

    The car randomly fails to start. It cranks fine, but refuses to start at other times. When it fails to start, it sometimes starts a day or two later.
