    Good Day All,
    Does anyone know if I can change a tranny from a 4L60E to a 4L80E. I have a 1994 Suburban where the tranny just went.. It has no 2nd and 4th gear. it is a 1500 series. Now I have a 95 GMC 2500 where I JUST had the tranny (4L80E) rebuilt, but the truck is falling apart faster then i can fix it. Since the Suburban is in excellent shape I just wanted to swap the trannys, but not to sure about shift patterens and/or electronics.

    Thanks
    Brian

    Any time you are very welcome. Yes you can swap tthem out you need new wiring harness reprogram computer, an adapter, maybe a new crossmember. Cheaper to sell the 80 and rebuild the 60
