Hey, a lot of people will say FLSFC's are the first thing to be done. The only thing holding me up is a good lift to weld them up on. I should probably work on my MIG welds too

Oh yeah, and the fact that I now have a trans to pull and rebuild

Cool thanks. Yea I got the t45 and needing to ID the weak points as I know it will be the next thing to break on my car lol I'll probably get the 26 spline input shaft just for insurance as well.

Yeah, if it weren't for the 4.10's it would REALLY blow. And the worst part is I just finished installing a wot box and I can't even bang gears with it But thanks man! Kind of a haphazard exhaust setup but I don't mind it. It does the job!

I've heard they are a very weak piece. Can anybody point out some more weak points in the trans that I may as well take a look at while I've got it out? I've never done trans work but I don't mind a learning experience. It's got a lot of miles on it and I like to bang gears so I wouldn't mind a bit more piece of mind before it goes back in.
my pilot bearing is squealing mildly. Maybe bearing stuff? Synchronizers? I know I need to replace my pilot bearing, 3rd synchro, and I may as well do the clutch and throw out bearing. Maybe even shift forks since stumbling onto this thread!

If you can shoot for a cryo treated shift forks, like I assume that Jayc posted above, it would behoove you to just go for that.

Great info. This is exactly what I was thinking since both gears are out and this is the exact experience I was looking for. Thanks for the input.
